Following the recent release of the Canibus diss track, “Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes,” the members of Slaughterhouse turned to Twitter to share their immediate reactions to the Queen’s rappers diss.
“Just for the record Canibus been on sum b******* with SH for months behind the scenes tho,” Crooked I Tweeted yesterday, May 5. “I dont give #2shits about it either way.. I ignored him when he was on bs with me.. Didnt kno dat huh?”
As the title states, “Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes” is primarily targeted at Joe Budden although Canibus doesn’t hesitate in calling out other members of Slaughterhouse. Ironically, Budden didn’t offer much of a reaction on Twitter following the song’s release.
On the other hand Royce Da 5’9, who Canibus referred to as a “moist buttwipe” on “Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes,” was quite short with his response to the track.
“Dear Canibus.. ZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZzz,” said Royce Da 5’9 via Twitter.
“Why everybody just always diss me n Joey? Lol it’s 2 more gentleman in our group. Why yall never bother them? Scared? Lol prolly so,” Royce later added.
The release of “Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes” comes just weeks before the May 31st release of Canibus’ album with Keith Murray titled In Gods We Trust, Crush Microphones To Dust.
Here is a line from the diss track:
“Internet snitcher, like a little b**** / Joey low life, living off rice and goat tripe / He boasts on the mic, then he posts on the site / Then exposed his whole life for the dope, for a price / Don’t rep the culture right / Sold his soul for the hype / Got known overnight for niggas fuckin’ his wife / Got bust in the eyesight and still wouldn’t fight!”
