Joe Budden and Tahiry have given their sides to the story of Joe and Consequence’s scuffle on Tuesday (March 12) during the filming of the “Love and Hip Hop” reunion show. Now… Cons offers his side.

“It boils down to respect, and the lack there of,” the NYC rapper said, before explaining how things led to a physical altercation.

First, Consequence smacked Joe. Then later, Budden retaliating by approaching him with a friend.

Cons says he didn’t run, despite his rival’s claims; and says he’s currently in possession of his phone… before going on to make some crazy accusations from reading through his texts.
