Ray Benzino insists to The New York Daily News that the shooter in Eminem's new video 'Like Toy Soldiers', who kills D-12's Proof, "is supposed to be me." The Source magazine co-owner also takes offense at Eminem's referring to him as "a 'receptionist.' He's still being a disrespectful little fu**." Benzino fumed, "[Eminem] is a coward and pu***. If he and I are ever face to face, I'm going to smack the sh** out of him."




The beef goes on between rival rappers Eminem and Ray Benzino.
"[Eminem] is a coward and p--," says Benzino, co-owner of The Source magazine, who has a new video mocking Slim Shady. "If he and I are ever face to face, I'm going to smack the s-- out of him."

On his recent track, "Like Toy Soldiers," Eminem claimed he wanted to put an end to hip-hop hostilities. The song's video depicted the fictional murder of his buddy Proof by a masked gunman.

Benzino claims the shooter in that video "is supposed to be me." He also takes offense at Eminem's referring to him as "a 'receptionist.' He's still being a disrespectful little f--."

In retaliation, Ragin' Ray uses his own rap, "Look Into My Eyes," to return the fire. The track's video has someone named "Jimmy" - Benzino confirms he means Jimmy Iovine, the head of Eminem's label, Interscope Records - arrange for Benzino to be killed.

Benzino also alleges Interscope has pressured BET not to air his video.

"BET says it doesn't want to get in the middle," says Benzino. "But they play Eminem's video every day. Eminem can do a parody of Michael Jackson, but as soon as someone makes a little parody of him, he can't take it."

An ally of Eminem denies the "Toy Soldiers" video was about Benzino.

"It's about beefs in general," he says. "Benzino is trying to us use Eminem's CD to push his own."

Benzino Resigns From The Source
By Houston Williams
Date: 4/8/2005 4:16 pm



Ray Benzino, the Chief Brand Executive and Co-owner of The Source magazine, has resigned from his position at the company today (April 8).

"If me leaving the source is gonna help the magazine then I'll do it," the rapper told AllHipHop.com."The Source is an institution and is part of history; I want my kids and grandkids to enjoy the No. 1 Hip-Hop magazine for all time."

“I want to step down from the magazine and sell my stock effective immediately,â€￾ the rapper continued in a statement.

The rapper explained that there were a number of reasons for his departure, including his beef with Eminem, politics and other nearby business partnerships.

“This is a big step for me. I’ve been consumed too much with the whole conflict thing… the Eminem suit and I am sick of it. I don’t want to take away from what The Source has built up, but I got issues with The Source and magazines like that. Everyone is too politically correct. They’re not thinking about the little guy who can’t afford to pay for high priced ads. It’s like a monopoly,â€￾ he continued.

He also took issue with mogul Earl Graves and his Black Enterprise publication, which partnered with The Source when it sought to strengthen its financial status.

“Our other partner, Black Enterprises, is another reason why I’ve decided to leave. I don’t like how they perceive me. There are too many things that I don’t agree with, so I am moving on.â€￾

Finally, Zino stated that he expects to start a new publication – a direct competitor of The Source – that will be free of his previous constraints.

“I plan on creating another magazine that has my voice which represents the little guy. It’s because of the manipulation of SoundScan and radio that Hip-hop is losing its edge,â€￾ he lamented. “I want to come out with a magazine that will reflect that. I want to start from the ground up and speak for the artists.â€￾

While he's starting a mag, a rep for the rapper stateed that he has no beef with his former publication. "They're still cool," the rep told AllHipHop.com and revealed that the rapper and former partner Dave Mays would have a press conference today.
