As Benzino has continued his verbal onslaught on Slaughterhouse, he has had words for the likes of Crooked I, Joe Budden and an ensuing battle with Royce Da 5’9.  One name of the slaughter that has remained untouched by the Boston native is Joell Ortiz.

With Free Agent coming at the end of March, Ortiz has been heavy in his campaign with countless freestyles released, the Road Kill mixtape, which will have a sequel out sooner than later, along with a project with long time collaborator Novel for their project Defying The Predictable coming around the corner.

Tension is building to build as Zino stated that he is bringing together a group specifically made to attack Slaughterhouse and prove his statement that the four man group is overrated and aren’t as lyrically endowed as some are claiming.

Having so much dirt thrown onto the name of his group, the Brooklyn Bomber sets the records straight by saying that he actually has no comment on the situation and leaves Zino to his own opinion.

Speaking with the On-Air-Idiots show, Ortiz gives his reaction to the recent bombarding from Zino.

“That’s homeboy’s opinion, and that’s all I can say.”

Embracing the fact that he actually has no beefs of enemies in Hip Hop, he adds that he will only react if he is tempted and will deal with the situation accordingly if it presents itself.

“My beef is with poverty.  I wanna supply jobs to my friends and take them off the street.  My beef is with the struggle, what’s going on in these streets.”

Giving the details on his own project, he also gives some more incite on when to expect the next project from Slaughterhouse.
