Slim Jesus has responded to the video of MB Jesus confronting him at A3C. He says to This Is 50 that the situation was not a big deal.
“If you look in that video, you see my cameraman pop out right from behind me, puts his arm between us and I walked off,” the Ohio rapper says. “There was nothing about to happen there. No talking about I need security. No, I got security don’t worry about it.”
Slim Jesus says that the negative attention he’s received has helped his career.
“Keep doing it,” Slim Jesus says. “Y’all the ones that put me out state to state everywhere. If it wasn’t for y’all, it wouldn’t have blown up like it did and I wouldn’t be out here going all over the place doing shows.”
