One of the more bizarre beefs in recent memory has some new twists.
As previously reported, Ray J and Fabolous got into some sort of altercation in Las Vegas over the weekend. Brandy's little brother told his side of the story during an extended, amped-up tirade on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, saying that he punched Fab in the face and that the Brooklyn rapper was scared.
In response, Loso reached out to his old mentor DJ Clue. He insisted that Ray's account was fabricated and insinuated that the R&B singer was under the influence.
"This is not no big thing to me. It is what it is at this point," he said. "This s--- is more a war on drugs than it is war between Ray J and me. This n---a is high and coked up or on pills. His rant, I heard it, it's hilarious to me. It's a joke to me. I'm taking this serious on the side of where he thinks that I'm the n---a that he should do that to, but I'm laughing at his whole character. There's nobody that believes that Ray J's gangsta to that point unless he's gonna prove it. At this point now, he's going to have to prove all that funny s--t that he said."
The Brooklyn rapper also gave his version of what exactly went down between him and Ray, beginning with the lighthearted remarks on Twitter that Fab, a notorious online jokester, made while watching the singer's appearance on boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s 24/7 pre-fight HBO reality show Saturday night.
"What really happened is...Floyd [Mayweather, Jr.] had a 24/7 show for the fight, and I guess Ray J was on the show, and on the show, Floyd goes, 'I'm about to have a concert in my living room,'" Fab said. "The camera cuts to Ray J singing on the piano...and it was just funny to me. I made a couple jokes about it on Twitter, and I guess people had fun with it on Twitter...I came to Vegas for the fight [and] Diddy had a dinner...so Ray J comes to the dinner...and when Ray J came in, he was like, 'Yo Fab, you got me on Twitter,' we laughed about it, joked about it...what he said was, the way they edited it, the 24/7 show...there was people there, everybody was in the living room. It still was funny, we still were joking...and what we were telling him was, 'Don't be doing any concerts in a n---a's living room'...that's not where we wanna see his career go. We all laughed about that; he was cool."
He continued: "I had a show here at the Palms [Casino] with Jadakiss and Styles P...I'm walking down the hallway to the show...I see 50 [Cent] against the wall, I see Floyd against the wall, and I see Brandy's brother...I give 50 [Cent] a dap, I'm going to give Floyd a dap, and Ray J chimes in and says, 'Yo, my n---a I'm here with the Money Team...and we were talking about the jokes, and a n---a wasn't feeling the jokes.' I'm laughing, I'm thinking he's continuing the talk from the dinner...but I'm laughing with him anyways...and I go to speak to Floyd, and [Ray J]'s still chiming in my ear...so I ask, 'Yo, Ray J, what's wrong? Are you serious?'...While he's talking to me, he's touching my shoulder, tapping me on the chest...so I'm like, 'Don't touch me no more'...and then, from there, he leaned back [and] pushed off of my chest. So when he pushed off of me, I jumped back to him and grabbed him up. There was no fight, there was no swing...that n---a was on that Whitney last night."
Meanwhile, Ray J apologized to his supporters for his radio rant. "I want to apologize to my fans that might have been offended by the things I said on the radio today," the singer tweeted. "I lost control."
