Coi Leray has been on her father Benzino’s mind a lot this weekend.
For one, Zino told Busta Rhymes not to have his daughter half naked in a music video, referring to the visuals for their song “Luxury Life.”
Two, the Boston rapper ripped Coi for saying he’s jealous of her success, which she said during a recent interview with Angie Martinez.
“At first it was rocky, because I felt he couldn’t handle my success,” said Coi about her and Benzino’s relationship. “I feel it did come from an envious place, which is OK because he’s human.”
Benzino responded to the interview on Instagram and called his daughter’s claim ridiculous.
“How tf can be envious towards someone I RAISED, NURTURED, PROVIDED FOR, INFLUENCED AND LOVE VERY DEARLY???” he wrote. “This industry and the internet have completely messed up the minds of this young generation. I’m tired of her pushing a false narrative about who I am and what I’ve done as a father.”
“In my 40 years in hip hop I’ve never ever seen an artist DOG their parents out the way Coi does and it’s embarrassing and sad…and one last thing, @angiemartinez knows she doesn’t like me so she’s just being manipulative and messy,” added Benzino.
Do you think he’s really jealous of Coi’s success?
