Benzino

Before he was grossing out viewers of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Benzino was a controversial rapper and co-publisher of The Source magazine. Z-No notoriously led the magazine on a lengthy vendetta against Eminem that makes Joseline's Stevie J smackdown look tame. In the magazine and on several diss tracks, Benzino labeled Eminem a racist, calling him "the rap Hitler," and prompting Em to respond on several vicious cuts of his own. But today Benzino — wiser, older and a whole lot more lovey-dovey — is extending an olive branch. "I can say it now, I was wrong for it," Benzino told MTV. "I don't have no beef with nobody... The situation with me and Eminem, if I could've done it over, I would've...If I offended anybody with that, I apologize to hip hop for that."
