Popa Wu From Wu-Tang Clan Confronts Action Bronson, Says There’s No Issue
Action Bronson and Popa Wu, of the Wu-Tang Clan, reportedly argued after meeting face-to-face in a parking lot at Sean Price’s wake — a Brooklyn rapper who died in his sleep last weekend.
Popa Wu Confronted Action Bronson About Ghostface Killah Diss
Bronson dissed Ghostface Killah, one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s most acclaimed figures, last month during an interview on ESPN. Bronson had been asked about how he felt being compared to Ghostface Killah, the Wu-Tang legend. Bronson answered that “it’s indifferent at this point” since “people compare Coke and Pepsi. People compare everything.” He said he was “glad it’s one of the greats.”
But even if Bronson showed some respect to Killah, he then said that Killah “is not rapping like this more.” Killah responded with a vlog, saying that Bronson will be “gut like a pig.”
So when Wu posted a photo of him with Bronson yesterday on Instagram, the Internet went crazy, speculating about a new chapter in the feud between Bronson and the Wu-Tang Clan. Both Wu and Bronson looked threatening in the photo, which Wu captioned, “This wat we do I’m 4 real Popawu u f–k with my mine u get Chestties Wu 4ever.”
But in an interview with MTV News, Wu declared the situation has been “blown out of proportion” and that this is just “a shot of me and him standing there.” He added that “you see my hands are behind my back at every position. I’m not yelling at him. I’m talking to him like a father talks to his son, like, ‘You gotta be careful with what you say.’” Wu added that he “was just talking to that brother.”
Wu then posted the photo again on his Instagram to make clear that he did not get into a fight with Bronson, asking people to hit him up if they “really want to hear the truth.”
Wu, 59, also said in the interview he wouldn’t ever bully “a kid,” and assured fans that this wasn’t a “racial issue.” But the longtime Wu-Tang collaborator added that he advised Bronson not to talk about Killah again, adding that he and the Wu-Tang are “pioneers” who “don’t have to take that from a kid.”
Killah tweeted on Wednesday about what happened at the wake.
Nuff respect to Sean price family, my condolences. That thing that happen yesterday wasn’t my work, I never sent the wolves on him.
