The feud between Troy Ave and Joey Bada$$ took an ugly turn when Ave appeared on Sway in the Morning and was unapologetic for his lyrics mocking the 2012 suicide of late Pro Era member Capital STEEZ on Troy’s diss song “Bad Ass.” During the interview, Ave called STEEZ a “bozo” for taking his own life.

Several celebrities, including veteran rapper Nore, publicly denounced Ave’s disrespecting comments about STEEZ who committed suicide in 2012. Fellow rapper Styles P, whose daughter committed suicide, went to his Twitter page to decry Ave’s savagery and even offered to broker a “cease fire” between Ave and Bada$$.

On Thursday (March 3), the BSB Records honcho jumped on Twitter
to apologize for his suicide remarks. “If any of MY fans was offended by me saying ALL people who commit suicide was bozo’s my bad I’d neva purposely diss my #RealOnes,” he tweeted.

However, the “All About the Money” rapper made it clear that his feud with Bada$$ is far from over.

“It’s still #RealVsFake tho and I still stand by every FACT on this record #Tweet Sumn else Ima get more SAVAGE,” he wrote.

Bada$$ responded with a Troy Ave album cover featuring the Michael Jordan sad face and the caption, “Troy Ave, Major L.”

Hopefully, Style P can intervene and be the peacemaker in this unnecessary feud that’s getting really personal.
