AceShowbiz - Benzino was furious upon seeing Coi Leray's interview with Angie Martinez. The former co-owner of The Source slammed his daughter and the radio personality for suggesting that he was "envious" of Coi's success in the music industry.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, November 11, the 58-year-old re-shared a clip from "Angie Martinez IRL" in which Angie asked, "How does your father deal with the success, 'cause that's gotta be triggering for him in a lot of ways too." In response, Coi said, "At first it was rocky because I felt like he couldn't handle my success."
"I felt like it did come from an envious place, which is okay, 'cause he's human, and that's fine. But I felt like he still wants," the femcee added. "Like he's one of those people that feels like, 'Yo, I still have a story to tell. I feel like I have to say something, let me say something.' "
Upset by their remarks, Benzino fumed in the caption, "This has to be the most ridiculous [s**t] I've heard in my entire life on this earth." He continued, "How tf can be envious towards someone I RAISED, NUTURED, PROVIDED FOR, INFLUENCED AND LOVE VERY DEARLY??? This industry and the internet have completely messed up the minds of this young generation."
"I'm tired of her pushing a false narrative about who I am and what I've done as a father. In my 40 years in hip hop I've never ever seen an artist DOG their parents out the was Coi does and it's embarrassing and sad," he further lamented. "and one last thing, @angiemartinez knows she doesn't like me so she's just being manipulative and messy."
Not stopping there, Benzino argued, "They want me crash out but I've worked on myself so hard that I ain't going backwards for ANYTHING, but what I won't do is allow ANYONE to slander my name and push a false narrative on my reputation and who I am." He then concluded, I've shed too many blood, sweat and tears, survived street wars and indictments. Nope no more."
In another post, Benzino penned, "None of y'all was there when I was providing for her her mother, her two brother who were mine and her two older brother I raised who wasn't mine so keep your negative opinions to yourself." He then stressed, "I'm a real dad and I'm proud of that. STOP THE [cap]. SALUTE TO ALL DADS WHO HANDLE THEIR BUSINESS WHILE GOING UP AGAINST THE STREETS AND THE SYSTEM, S**T'S WICKED OUT HERE FOR BLACK MEN."
