Consequence Explains Fight With Joe Budden, Questions His Sexuality
The Queens rapper called into Hot 97’s Angie Martinez’s Show Thursday (March 14) to offer his version of events. Cons explained why he sucker-punched Budden but insisted that he didn’t run from anyone. He even chalked up being jumped by the New Jersey rapper and his accomplice as fair barter for his earlier sneak attack.
Cons also acknowledged that Tahiry did “snuff” him during his first tussle with Budden but he brushed it off. “Unfortunately, when I smacked him, from what I was told by one of the stylists or production people, when I extended, it hit Tahiry,” he said. “So she reacted and she hit me. And that’s a girl hitting me. And I like Tahiry. Shout out to Tahiry. It felt good.”
The interview took an unexpected turn when Cons revealed that Budden lost his phone during their second skirmish. He then began to reveal the contents of Budden’s phone including an alleged “sexting” message from a man.
“He left his phone at the crime scene. First text, it’s from Raqi Thunda. ‘You alright?’ Oh wow, I thought you guys was enemies. Hmm, a little fishy here,” he shared. “Then there’s somebody named Derrick. And Derrick is basically saying, ‘Don’t do anything stupid, we’re hanging on by thin thread. I’ll come see you after the reunion. I love you and I miss you.’”
“And I guess he must have told Derrick, ‘Hey, why don’t you come to London Wednesday?’” he continues. “And then there’s emoticons of an engagement ring and a baby… and here’s the thing, I was so disgusted I broke the phone. I still got proof, don’t get it twisted. I don’t lie.”
The ‘Love & Hip Hop’ reunion special is set to air in the coming weeks on VH1.
