Raekwon talked to DJ Vlad about his supposed "beef" with Joe Budden from years ago. An incident occurred in 2009 after Budden had made some critical comments about Method Man's place on a greatest rappers list. Budden wound up being punched by a member of Raekwon's entourage, but Rae says the whole thing was a misunderstanding.
"That [feud with Joe Budden] wasn't nothing, that was bird sh*t right there," Rae said. "I ain't never seen him [since the incident]…[if he were to walk in now,] I'd be like, 'Yo, I gotta talk to you right away,' whether whatever current [feelings he has towards me] might come to my face, but it would definitely be like I wouldn't steal on him, or act like I'm looking for this n***a like he stole something or took something from me. It'd be like, 'Yo, we didn't really straighten it out,' and whatever it is."
"It was like, wow, he said what he said, but it wasn't nothing to where it was [real beef]," Rae explains. "It's one thing when a n***a is being disrespectful…it was more that kind of response, and when Meth heard about it, of course Meth wasn't feeling it [and] he was going to say something…but however it jumped out of pocket, I'm just caught in the middle 'cus I'm in the mix of doing my work and we're in the same places [at Rock the Bells]…it wasn't never like he was on the target, it was just like when Meth sees him, [he would approach him] 'cus that's what Meth wanted to do…I'm the middle man 'cus I'm right there, I'm seeing this n***a. How're you gonna be around n***as that's talking about other n***as and then you're in the mix…[but Meth and Joe] squashed it out, and I guess that everything is all happily ever after."
