Coi Leray Believes Her Dad Was Envious Of Her Success, Benzino Reacts



Coi LeRay sat down with Angie Martinez on her In Real Life podcast to talk about her childhood and how she became successful in hip hop. She touches on how her father, Benzino feels about her success.

“At first it was rocky because I felt like he couldn’t handle my success I felt like it it did come from an envious place which is okay cuz he’s human and it’s fine. But I felt like you know he want he still wants like he’s one of those people that feels like, ‘Yo, like I still have a story to tell.’ You know, I still feel like something I have to say something.”

“Like, nooo. But he’s like, ‘I have to say something,’” she continued. “He’s one of those people like, “Let me at him!”

Coi says she has a song on her album called “Man’s World,” which she says is about her father.

Benzino reacts after seeing the clips of Coi’s interview with Angie Martinez and posted two responses on his Instagram.


“This has to be the most ridiculous [poop emoji] I’ve heard in my entire life on this earth,” he wrote. “How tf can be envious towards someone I RAISED, NUTURED, PROVIDED FOR, INFLUENCED AND LOVE VERY DEARLY???”

“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,” he continued. “In my 40 years in hip hop I’ve never ever seen an artist DOG their parents out the was 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,” he added. “They want me crash out but I’ve worked on myself so hard that I ain’t going backwards for ANYTHING. But what I won’t do is allow ANYONE to slander my name and push a false narrative on my reputation and who I am. I’ve shed too many blood, sweat and tears, survived street wars and indictments. Nope no more.”

Benzino posted another message aimed at the fans.

“None of y’all was there when I was providing for her her mother, her two brother who were mine and her two older brother I raised who wasn’t mine so keep your negative opinions to yourself,” he wrote. “I’m a real dad and I’m proud of that. STOP THE [blue cap emoji]. SALUTE TO ALL DADS WHO HANDLE THEIR BUSINESS WHILE GOING UP AGAINST THE STREETS AND THE SYSTEM, S**T’S WICKED OUT HERE FOR BLACK MEN.”
