Wu Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah threatened to set fellow rapper Action Bronson’s beard on fire in a filmed rant posted online today.
The video shows the hip-hop artist talking directly to camera and calling out Bronson, who has repeatedly been compared to him in the past.
“First of all you little fat fuck, who gives you the right to even mention my name out your motherfucking mouth,” Ghostface says. “Boy you done made a mistake boy. You done fucked up. Because listen man, you could never fuck with my pen. My sword, my blade, whatever you want to call it, I’m too nasty for you. This is why the fuck you look up to me, and sound like me.”
Continuing his tirade, Ghostface appears to threaten physical violence against his fellow artist and says: “You walk around the club with no shoes on, a big ass beard that one day I might set on fire just for saying my name. Doing 25 years doesn’t sound so good, but I got shooters who’ll do that. Those shooters are not from New York. I don’t think you know the magnitude of what you have done. ”
It has been suggested by fans that the dispute goes back to a recent media appearance by Bronson in which he was told by his host that he sounded like Ghostface Killah. Appearing on US TV show SportsNation, he replied: “He’s not rapping like this no more.”
Bronson has since apologised for any upset he caused to Ghostface Killah in the following tweet:
When ur wrong ur wrong and I was wrong. I apologized for the comments. I’ll always be a stand up human. Much love.
