Buckshot recently talked about how the ongoing feud between his Rock The Bells tour mates Joe Budden and Raekwon is stupid and more like a publicity stunt because they aren't selling any records. The Boot Camp Clik member says he has spoke to both Rae and Joe on tour and points out why their beef is pointless.
"It's f*cking crazy like now because it ain't necessary," Buckshot explained. "Motherf*ckers is beefing and ain't selling records. Beefing used to work to sell records for one motherf*cker named 50 Cent and LL [Cool J] and certain people back in the day. 50 Cent is really the first one that came like 'F*ck that, I'll murder a n*gga' besides Pac. And Pac would still make good music but he was beefing in interviews. And 50 would make good music and beef with his music. Joe Buddens and the rest of them dudes, they just making music. They beefing, I think, not because they selling records and Joe Budden know that the only way to stir sh*t up is — the only way to let people know smoke is around is to start a fire. A publicity stunt means to take advantage of the publicity. So I think it is a publicity stunt to say 'F*ck it, while I got the public's ear, I'ma say sh*t to keep 'em coming back.' And the f*cked up thing is that that sh*t don't do nothing no more. It used to do something — it was worth something a few years ago."
