Consequence Explains Why He Attacked Joe Budden
It seems like we’ve been hearing details about the smoke break smackdown that took place between Love & Hip Hop NY cast members Joe Budden, Consequence and Tahiry from everyone except the big-toothed bandit who started it all.
Not to be left out, Consequence finally chatted it up with HOT 97’s Angie Martinez to tell the full version of his side of the story and explain what made him pop off.

“The No. 1 thing is I don’t run from nobody,” he said. “Why would I smack somebody and then run, but stay there to get jumped? I never ran from nothing.”
As many already assumed, Cons explained that the altercation was spurred by he and Budden’s awkward confrontation during a previous Hot 97 interview.
“When I spoke to him at Hot 97 he said to me and Jen that he would never make mention [of] us in the public. However I looked in the video, I spoke to [Hot 97 program director] Ebro about it, me and Ebro had a man-to-man conversation. Ebro tweeted that me and Joe had a man-to-man conversation, fine,” Cons explained.
However, he says that he was infuriated when Joey later spoke about him in an interview with This Is 50.
“He talks about the interview at Hot  then he goes on and say ‘but if Consequence ever does an interview like he did before I’ma have to approach him a different way.’ That’s the piece of the story that he doesn’t tell anybody,” Cons said.
Martinez questioned why neither her nor Joey could just let their beef go, but Cons argued that he’s “trained to go” and, thus, a fight was inevitable.
However, Joey wasn’t the only one that Cons dissed in the interview. Cons also claimed that all the storylines on the show are fake. Well, except for one.
“This [fight] is the realest thing that happened on this show all season,” Cons claimed.
In all this jibbersh, we still have yet to hear Cons give an explanation for getting at Joe via a sneak attack instead of stepping to him straight up. Do you think Consequence was scared to get into a “fair” fight with Joe?
