An explicit video that many believed to be Lil Fizz circulated on social media earlier this month, which Fizz later claimed wasn’t him. During a recent episode of his eponymous podcast, Budden reacted to the video by making sexual comments about Fizz.
“Aye, Lil Fizz, you’re lucky I ain’t see this news sooner,” he said. “I would have started with this one, buddy. But this why I’ma fight y’all, ’cause y’all have eyes and know some of this is funny. If this n-gga got his ass tooted up in the air on OnlyFans, somebody need to know about that.”
He continued: “Do I like skinny people? Lil Fizz too small for me. I’d break that lil boy. I’d have fizz coming out of Fizz, man. Get this n-gga outta here.”
Lil Fizz took to his Instagram Stories following the leak and denied the man in the video was him, claiming someone was trying to “destroy” him.
“This shit is crazy, the levels these chicks will go to, to try and destroy and ruin you,” he wrote. “Wow unbelievable! Y’all have a happy holiday, that is NOT ME!”
Joe Budden previously made headlines for saying he was “bisexual” and “liked boys and girls” on his podcast. However, his comments were part of a longer conversation about the LGBTQ community’s alleged forgiveness of DaBaby following his homophobic rant at Rolling Loud Miami last year.
Budden later took to Twitter to react to the public’s surprise at his apparent revelation. “Ahhhh, I see the word got out!!! Continue to spread the word pls,” he wrote in jest.
The former Slaughterhouse member revisited his comments on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast earlier this year. While he didn’t confirm his sexuality, he questioned why it mattered.
“I’m not ready to share my personal journey,” he joked. “I’m not ready to let you guys into my world. Only do n-ggas in Hip Hop think that’s cool — ‘Yo, I heard you say something. Yeah, you like dick?’ Only in Hip Hop do n-ggas think that’s not an intrusive question. That is invasive, that is intrusive. That’s my lifestyle to share, not yours. That’s not your place to pull me out of the closet.
“You’re asking me who I like to fuck, is that what you’re asking me? That’s my own business. I’m not saying what I’m saying because I’m worried about what one of you n-ggas think about my sexuality. If I’m bi, we’d still be- you don’t know if I am or ain’t, but if I was, what do you think would be different about my answer right now?”
He continued: “Let’s go with I am, what would be different about this room, this situation right now? Absolutely nothing. If I’m bi, what would make you think I’m looking at you. What is wrong with you n-ggas in here? You n-ggas is nuts. You just assume that you the type of a bi n-gga. What the fuck is going on in Hip Hop, yo? Only in Hip Hop.”
