It was only a matter of time before Benzino responded to 50 Cent’s recent Instagram posts. On Wednesday (April 13), the television exec set his sights on both Benzino and Young Buck, suggesting they both had relationships with trans women. Not long after, the former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta personality fired back at Fiddy in a series of Instagram Stories.
“Keep pushing my buttons boy @50Cent,” he began. “You not getting anymore Crab Trap hookups.” He continued, “Hey fuck you @50Cent. So @50cent wanna clown me for fucking with the trans community? Someone ask him why Power got gay as hell this season. Yo @50Cent I heard you watch all those Drew and Everett scenes back each week.”
The posts arrived shortly after Benzino appeared to mock his own daughter Coi Leray for low album sales. Akademiks shared an Instagram post claiming Trendsetter was on pace to sell roughly 11,000 total album-equivalent units in its first week. Taking to his Instagram Stories once again, Benzino added a few laughing emojis to Akademiks’ post about it, which included the caption, “IF SHE HAD TRACK WITH @IAMBENZINO I WOULDA LISTENED @COILERAY.”
Of course, people — including Tory Lanez — were shocked Benzino would treat his own daughter that way and lit up the comment section with their disapproval.
“I’d never laugh at my daughter,” Lanez wrote. “type of shit is that?” while another person said, “You basically dissing yourself putting down your daughter like that. Wack.”
Benzino has been on a social media tirade in recent weeks — and surprisingly, not about Eminem. Benzino was apparently upset following Coi Leray’s appearance on The Breakfast Club in which she admitted her family was once “broke.” Behind the scenes, Benzino was harassing Leray and her mother for the revealing interview.
“My dad is texting my mom threatening her and me because I said he went broke on the breakfast club on the day of my album release,” she wrote to Twitter. “I hate to bring this shit to social media but my father need help. Sorry if I offended you on breakfast club but don’t treatment me or my mom because you hate to admit that we went broke after the source.”
