Royce da 5’9″ Responds to J-Hood Diss, “I’ma Take his Fuckin’ Head Off”

While the war of words between Slaughterhouse and D-Block defector J-Hood has recently cooled off, Royce da 5’9″ says the dispute is far from resolved.

In a recent interview with XXLMag.com, Nickel-Nine denied that there’d be any more lyrical fire from his four-man super group, but insisted that the beef could leak off of the wax.

“We’re not going to respond to him because he’s a bum… just like Ransom,” Royce said, who’s digital EP The Revival  dropped yesterday (July 7). “He might want to shut his fucking mouth. Detroit niggas don’t play that shit.”

Hood has been taking shots at the entire Slaughterhouse crew for the past few months, name-calling and levying threats on street DVDs. “I’m all for the battle rapping, but when you get to talking about what you’re going to do… I don’t want to fucking hear that,” Royce continued. “I move around New York how I feel. That nigga can’t step a fucking pinky toe in Detroit.”

“He can say what he wanna say,” he added, “but if he brings that shit anywhere near my circumference, I’ma take his fucking head off.”

The dispute began late last year, when J-Hood took exception to a Royce punchline. He told hiphopbeef.com the offending quip was, “I’m the one, really though/you just a J-Hood gun video.”

The Yonkers MC clapped back with “Watch What You Say,” also dissing Jim Jones, 50 Cent and Jadakiss.

In April, Royce responded with his rendition of Red Café’s “Hottest in the Hood,” followed by partner-in-rhyme Crooked I’s “Slaughterhouse is a Big Deal.”

Next for Royce is the debut disc from his group , Slaughterhouse scheduled for an August 11 release. His fifth solo LP, Street Hop, is set to drop in September. –John Kennedy

    This is getting ugly.

    But I doubt J-Hood would have a song anyway to even go to the No Fly Zone.

      Get the fuck outta here royce…lol this nigga using terms like “pinky toe” & “circumference” This the same nigga that d12….That’s right people D FUCKING 12 had terrified riding around with guns….just cause you from detroit don’t mean you can’t get your ass kicked….even though I think he would beat the shit outta j hood stop the tough talk…it seem like he got in slaughterhouse & instantly became a tough guy…royce can rap his ass off (Malcolm X is one of my favorite diss records…cant front he killed that shit) but at this point responding to j hood only makes you look foolish

        “Get the fuck outta here royce…lol this nigga using terms like “pinky toe” & “circumference” This the same nigga that d12….That’s right people D FUCKING 12 had terrified riding around with guns”

        COSIGN, that was my only point. we all know j-hood is a bitch ass nigga, but royce is super-soft also. dude ain’t gon do shit to no one, that’s a fact! so he might as well not even waste his breath with the tough talk. he does not hold the weight in detroit to make OG calls, so all that no fly zone shit does not apply to royce. PLUS HE DID SAY SOME SIDEWAYS SHIT BOUT HOOD. one of them joe button stlye sneak disses.

      can i ask one question ? … when ppl are LYRICALLY gettin at one another why do ppl always bring up if they are about anything … i personlly dont think its matters … its about the music and lyrically royce will kill j hood

  • ryde_or_die

    j hood is an embarassment to Yonkers! u got DMX, Jada, Sheek, Styles & King Phaze then u got this lil faggot.

    I stopped caring bout him when he went at D-Block.

  • DETROIT

    I LOVE ROYCE! but he’s frontin right now. Royce is from oak park, not detroit. oakpark is a middle to upperclass suburb of the D. Detroit niggas do not claim oakpark, and oakpark niggas don’t claim the D. it’s funny to see royce doing his best “hood nigga” impression tho!

    • DetroitDraper

      Yea Royce a good rapper and all but trust me his name does’nt strike fear or carry too much weight in the D at all. What you really gotta worry about is them local dudes street lordz Trick of course but Royce…Naaa

    What’s good folks!?

    J-Hood must be drunk & high all the time. No hate, but since when was he just “that dude” to start beefing with the world like Pac?

    He must really be thirsty for that notoriety. I’m always suspect of cats who stay blurting out shit in miscellaneous directions, yet can’t release some quality music. I guess that’s hot on the streets. Beef for little to no reason whatsoever.

    I guess. Rap niggas are funny sometimes. Hell, more often than not. Good luck with that, J.

  • DETROIT

    here’s my thing:

    beef got outta hand in rap after pac and big died. since then ja and murder inc has really been the only REAL beef in the game.

    I don’t condone niggas dying over raps, BUT, this new climate where niggas say what they wanna say about you and think they won’t get fucked up is wack. cuz now hoe ass niggas are talkin shit. THIS IS WHY RAP IS BECOMING THE WWF, cuz no one has to back up their words anymore. if you call my son gay, I’M FUCKIN YOU UP, rap or not. now you got soft ass niggas dissing people, before you had to be able to hold your own in the streets before you mention a nigga. now soft niggas just talk shit, and when it gets too hot, they apologize. what do you guys think about this?

    • FLOSS

    One thing you cant take away from him is he’s a beast on the mic.

    Hood is the defintion of a bum, I think I still recall the negro please from like 5 years ago were he said some shit like “we got bullets the size of subway sandwiches” or some dumb shit.

    Plus, the nigga hood looks like he’s got downsyndrome, mixed with a side of late stage Aids infection. If you blew on that nigga, he’d fall over. They both need to shut up, this is beyond lame.

    Man I’ve been listening to Royce for 10 years here down south.He’s a great lyricist who never got his just due.He’s never struck me as no street cat.He even said it in one line on his song Throwback.What I don’t understand is his parent busted their asses to raise him in Oak Park and he wanna claim thug.Royce may know street niggas but he ain’t street.He kinda reminds of the talented nigga that might not live in the hood but street niggas take a liking to because he plays ball or rap etc.Royce stick to rapping.Leave that street shit to the street dudes.As for Jae Hood,Royce gon torch that nigga!

  • Nate

    Royce is nice but he couldn’t handle Mistah F.A.B. But if you don’t want to do the battle thing, I’m a big fan of the old school knuckle up solution. Put the guns down, put the fists up, or shut the fuck up.

    If you can’t outdo the object of your target in verbal battle or in the ring or blacktop, then get the fuck out of rap. We all know guys who can rhyme or fight, but this is primarily about music, and J-Hood just can’t hang with any member of slaughterhouse OR D-block (except Sheek)

    J-Hood doesn’t know how to play his role. He could learn from F.A.B.- F.A.B. murdered Royce in battle on video, then they excchanged a couple diss songs each. Both had some good things to say and it was over. Despite the criticism of either both probably gained a few new fans and kept it moving. J-Hood, you can’t take a shortcut with a bullshit beef to create a buzz. You have to earn it on your own. We don’t fall for that shit.

    J-Hood: Diss him on wax or challenge him to a fair one.
    Till then- Shut the fuck up.

  • Nate

    “Hood”
    Leaving Street DVD’ comments (hiding from your target)
    is hella pussy.

    If Royce is movin all over NY, then you guys should meet up. If you don’t then we know you don’t really want it with Royce.

  • 7saint

    Glad to see someone from the D point out that dude is from Oak Park. Kinda like Kid Rock claiming Detroit, when he’s from Romeo.
    BTW, Oak Park isn’t upper middle class. The city just has more white people, better police, and good pussy.

    • DETROIT

      “oak park, got my hood pass!”
      -WOW

      oakpark may not be UPPER middle class, but it is definately middle class. and what you have to understand is that i’m 31, and royce is damn near my age…meaning, WE GREW UP IN THE 80s! when we were growing up OAK PARK WAS JUST LIKE CANTON, LIVONIA, ETC. over time more blacks moved in, so it’s not as soft as it used to be. but it’s still A SUBURB of the D. IT’S NOT HOOD BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION! and just like southfield, the farther you get from 8 mile the richer oak park gets…so there are a lot of upper-middle class people there. AND LIKE SOMEONE SAID ABOVE, OAK PARK IS KNOWN FOR BITCHES…NOT NIGGAS! can someone name one hood in oak park….i’ll wait.

      • Brahsef

        I was broke as shit so I went to give plasma for money at the Oak Park plasma place. That may be the hood of Oak Park haha. I went once and never trusted those needles ever again. And they always played 80s kung fu movies on the televisions which was hilarious.

        And don’t judge, I was desperate for that bread.

        BTW…Detroit area is repped fully on these threads.

  • vhingrhamesonyo’momma

    Royce ain’t no trigga man! truthfully in 8 mile poppa doc was suppose to portray Royce. Do ya’ research and see if the backgrounds don’t match up, eminem pulled the ultimate diss on nickel and he ain’t even see it.But as far as J hood goes….”NEGRO PLEASE!” in Michigan if nuttin else if somebody even gotta lil’ pull you can get it, so don’t be stupid and end up in devil’s lake.do ya’ lil’ rap thing and chill you too small for the big shit you pop. pussy.

  • MrO2theC

    Royce’ll bury J Hood on wax, y rapper’s always thinkin they so hard lol they sposed be artists but i kno its all about comin frm the street life an they fink they gt sum reputation 2 uphold. its already bin sed they shud either ave it out man 2 man or shut the fuck up talkin shit, the beef on wax is cool tho, it’ll be funni 2 c hood tryin battle rap with a beast like royce lol

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Last time I hit a motherfucka, I broke my hand. So I’ll be damned if I’ma put down the heat. Niggas can talk shit all they want, but unless they packin like John Rambo they need to STFU and keep it movin. Like Biggie said “This ain’t back in the day”. A fair one? Shit aint nothin fair in a war. U only live once and ur not coming back. Fuck niggas that talk shit. Bringin knives to gun fights. That shit will be like Indiana Jones when that sword yielding motherfucka thought he was gonna do something. Yeah right!

    I’m thinking that this one will stay on wax. Detroit emcees have gone off-wax a million times before and some of those conflicts ended with tragedy. I would like to think that we’ve learned our lesson by now. We gotta ask ourselves if it’s worth going off-wax. Is it THAT serious???

    Again, it’ll stay on wax and will shape up to be a very entertaining show, imo. I’ll enjoy this one!!

    *takes bag of popcorn out of microwave*

  • Real Talk

    Alls Royce said is this, and yall takin it to a whole nother level:

    Royce said, rappin on wax is whatever, but if J Hood is going to actually do the street shit he is on his wack ass street DVD’s, than he’s going to have problems. Royce never claimed he was crippin or bloodin or sellin drugs or shootin people everyday, but yall is actin like he is tryin to be a fake gangsta for what he said. You could be a geeky CEO of Microsoft, if someone brings threats of violence your way, you can speak up all you want about defending yourself, doesnt mean you claimin to be a gangsta, thats just grown man shit. Yall are blowin it out of proportion, he never even mentioned guns or anything, yet yall are sayin Royce is claimin to be a trigga man.

    The street shit in the D, between D12, Trick, Royce is beyone SQUASHED, they family now.

  • Real Talk

    If anything, the person yall should be callin out as another fake gangsta rapper, is J Hood, not Royce. He’s the one escalatin shit by pretendin he’s street on You Tube videos. Royce is just responding. J Hood is mad cuz Royce’s punchline was true: “you a J Hood gun video” you pretend to be poppin off, but you really are just another fake rapper makin videos to make little kids think he really be doin that shit.

      I said something similar up top.

      This dude J is having some type of identity crisis. Since when is he a supervillian? I agree, any human threatened with intentional harm is going to heighten their senses & do what’s necessary. I would.

      Royce is just being a man. J-Hood however, as appearing a (wo)man scorned by the industry. Shit, if he’s so mad, he should be sleeping on D-Block (literally, in front of their studio) going @ them cats daily. That’s who stopped his momentum.

      Or, he could sit in front of the mirror & scream on himself for being too wack to make it.

        Honestly, I had no ideal who J-Hood was until Royce called him out. I clicked on the link in the article to listen to the diss song he made and was highly unimpressed.

        I haven’t seen his YouTube vids where he’s v-thuggin’ with empty clips. Something tells me it’s not worth checking out.

        Aiight, I’m out (does my name look diff??? Hmmm…).

    I think its fair to say Royce is respondin right now to generate some extra buzz for his Revival EP released a few days ago and the up coming SH releases, cuz those J Hood videos been around for a couple months.

    Im From New Orleans and I like Royce I been a fan for ten years.I’ve tried puttin niggas from around my way on Royce for minute now.The nigga Royce got skills,but that nigga trippin.Royce is the reason this shit started in the first place,with that sneak diss shit.Royce threw the first shot.Royce been out of charcter for while now.Royce is talented but he ain’t no street nigga.I’m not saying he’s coward either,but come on nigga,you a product of suburbia.Royce said himself he was never deep in the streets on the song Throwback.Why niggas gotta go beyond the call of duty to convence the people/listeners that they hard?If Royce moved like a true street nigga he would’ve known that there’s a time when you keep your mouth shut.Silence is golden,and Royce ain’t been silent lately.He been talking his ass off.J-Hood can’t fuck with Royce on wax lets make that clear,but like I said Royce is the reason this whole shit started.He’s been taking alot of sneaky ass shots at people lately.Like I said I like Royce as a emcee,but he been sayin and doing some fake shit.

    • vhingrhamesonyo’momma

      ^^^
      yeah,he has.

  • Real Talk

    @ Nola, ya my dude, I been listenin to Royce since way back as well. Just cuz Royce through a diss towards J Hood doesnt mean hes tryin to act gangsta. Rappers diss rappers, nothin to do wit the streets, or at least shouldnt, Royce never made no threats.

    Royce talks gangsta shit on his records. So what? Every rapper does. Its not like he swears that hes Pablo Escobar like other fake rappers (*cough Rick Ross *cough Jay Z).

    In this case, it doesnt really have anything to do with potential gangsta shit, cuz we all know J Hood is just makin videos on You Tube pretendin hes hard and hes not really gonna attempt anything towards nobody.

    Im not really sure how you mean bout Royce been actin out of character, that never really comes across to me. He’s Frank the Tank now but thats about it, he probably was always Frank the Tank, lol

    • Nola2828

      I dig where you comin from about every rapper disses some body,but Im talking how Royce dissed J-Hood and what he said in the song.With lines like… Im the one really yo/ Im the gun spark like Emillio/You a J-Hood gun video/That ain’t diss so please don’t diss me/ The mag barrel longer than the cheese on 50. What Royce is saying is he a head bussa and niggas is weak,and they all talk (thus the J- Hood reference).What Royce is saying too is that …I not dissin you but I got the Magnum and I will put in work if you diss me. J-Hood coulda took that as a semi treat.As far as Royce being out of character,he has been outta character.In recent years I don’t remember Royce always having an opinion on everything or speaking on or name dropping this one or that ones name.He made a comment in song about the beef with Rick Ross and Eminem.He mentioned Ross name in the song but cleaned it by sayin no disrespect to Rick Ross I fuck with you dawg.It’s almost as if he’s tryna speak on Eminem’s behalf.Royce was some what humble,but lately he’s been sound n off.Thanks for the big-up tho.Im feel n niggas in Detroit.I got family in the mitten.I like Elzhi too.That nigga is nice as hell dawg.Ya’ll be cool ya dig!
