We love hip-hop. We love rappers. We especially love rappers who take insignificant slights too far, because then it gives us an excuse to chronicle their fuckery. Case in point: Raekwon and Joe Budden got into a little dust-up over the weekend at a Rock the Bells show in California. Seems Lex Diamond resurrected the static between Jersey Joe and the Wu that got started when Joey talked sideways about being a better rapper then Method Man. (Side note: Joe Budden talk smack about another rapper? Whuh?) A punch might have been thrown, an eye might have gotten a little bit swollen, and more darts might have been thrown in the ensuing bloggery. But only one media outlet was there to capture the whole thing as it originally went down*. And that's Complex! We're like the Anderson Cooper of this rap satire thing, maing. Hit the jump for the rest of the story.

UnitedApiaristAssn @mousebudden Dear Mr. Budden, thank you for your query. It is our professional opinions that killer bees pose a very real threat. We cannot, however, say the same for these "killa beez" you mentioned.
raekwonicewater PERHAPS YOU SHOULD TAKE A CUE FROM CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS AND CALL YOUR NEXT ALBUM IMMOBILARITY 2 BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY GOD CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS MIGHT IMMOBILARICIZE YOU IN THE H-CIPHER-SELF-PITAL, NAHMEAN?
raekwonicewater *takes SAT, scores exceedingly high on Disorienting Rhetoric section*
nickcannon @raekwonicewater You tell him baby! Let these bitch-ass rappers know they can't play you out! You gotta stand up and fight for what's yours, Chef! *does curls with wet towel*

mousebudden *watches The Soup, Sportscenter, and C-SPAN*
mousebudden *scribbles in notebook*
mousebudden @raekwonicewater "You's a coward, let your mate hit me/I'm like Jon & Kate, ni**a, you know I always got the 8 wit me/healthcare reform, Shaq got traded to the Cavs/Don't be mad, Funny People saw its box-office sag/Bill Clinton went to Pyongyang, B, you ain't buzzin'/16 seconds ago there was a plane crash in the Hudson!"
raekwonicewater Man, this is shit is not nearly as satisfying as I thought it would be. I'm just gonna go try to bite Royce the 5'9 on the knee.
raekwonicewater *walks out under door*
