Budden Vs. Consequence: Yes, There Was A Fight At The Love And Hip Hop Reunion Taping

Today, while we were sitting in the press area at the Love And Hip Hop reunion taping just minding our own beeswax, an eruption of security guards descended upon Joe Budden, Consequence, and Tahiry as they made their way right past us, heading toward the exit door. The men were forced apart and moments later we returned to our regularly scheduled programming. But then the guys started to Tweet, and things between them got dirtier from there.

First, Cons sent the following tweet after the out-of-nowhere altercation occurred.

And a few minutes later, Joe tweeted his version of the events.

Joe also called in to Hot 97, mid-reunion, to give Angie Martinez the scoop on what happened, explaining “It was a break and I grabbed Tahiry…so we’re headed out and somebody runs up behind me and hits me in the back of the head with their hand!…And it’s him, running away now! Apparently, he hit me in the back of the head while I was walking away from him, and Tahiry snuffed him, and then he ran off and eight security guards came and grabbed me up.” Listen to Joe’s full account of the fight below.

But the guys didn’t end it there. Things were still simmering all evening between them and we knew something was up when Joe returned to the stage moments later in sneakers…but you’ll have to tune in to the reunion to find out exactly what happened when the cameras actually started rolling again.

So the real question is, what’s at the heart of this beef? Is it the awkwardness that ensued at their Hot 97 confrontation earlier this season?
