Joe Budden, Raekwon Collide Backstage At L.A. Rock The Bells — Budden Gets Punched

By Ronnie Gamble   /   Published 08/09/09

2009-08-09 - Raekwon and Joe BuddenThe California tour stop for Rock The Bells went down without a hitch on Saturday (August 8), but one person had a bad night ... his name was Joe Budden.

Earlier in the evening, the rapper was confronted by Wu-Tang member Raekwon and his entourage backstage at the event. According to witnesses backstage, words were exchanged and the two rappers went their separate ways.

Budden later headed to his dressing room, where he began to stream live from backstage at the concert, via BlogTV.com. It is unknown if he had addressed the previous run-in via the live feed though.

While streaming, Raekwon and his entourage stormed into Joe's dressing room for all to see. However, the feed cuts off after a few minutes.

When it re-emerged, Joe Budden is seen holding an ice page to his eye, while addressing the incident calling it a "faggot move", which he says he'll say to Raekwon once he's able to round up members of his own crew to confront him.

He claims that the Wu-Tang member asked for an apology, which he obliged (only because he was outnumbered), and then was punched in the eye by a member of Rae's crew who was much bigger than him.

"Im alright," Budden says on the response video. "They shake my hand, force an apology out of me ... I didn't wanna do that." On his Twitter, Joe wrote: "Brand new, I ain't got a scratch on me. I should've twitpiced n****s hidin in their dressin room, lol..."

The entire incident was filmed by members of Raekwon's crew, and is expected to leak to the internet soon.

    WU TANG AIN'T TO FUCK WITH
    To be realistic this dumb nigga Joe Budden he deserve it. He talk a lot and he is always disreseptful. How many MC's he has been having a problem with. Rae the chef you woulda have roast him more so that he should learn a lesson.
    Fuck straughthouse, you just a bunch of failures, check ya stats, where you have been before.

    I've been on Joe's side with "all" his other beefs, but this one is on him. You gotta expect shit like this, when you make comments about people. Especially someone from a 9 member group. That's 9 potential entourages that may come at you one day. This one is Joe's own fault. I really like Joe, but I love Wu-Tang. Wu-Tang Clan ainn't nothin to f*ck with, lyrically or physically. He should have seen this coming.
