Ghostface Didn’t Diss Wiz, Says Wu CEO
Earlier this week, radio personalities Star and Buckwild mistakenly reported that Ghostface Killah dissed Wiz Khalifa, even speaking to the 2010 XXL Freshman to respond to the fake swipe. XXLMag.com just got off the phone with Ghost’s management, who said that the statements that the radio hosts were referring to came from a blog that has no affiliation with Tony Starks or the Wu-Tang Clan.
“There is no beef with Ghostface or Wu-Tang with the young up-and-coming artist,” Wu CEO Mitchel “Divine” Diggs told XXL. “These young gentleman are doing what we’ve done, which is continuing to advance hip-hop.”
“Our brand is being used illegally out of the person who is using our logo is basically copying and pasting and [posting] on his site in Ghostface’s name and in this moment it is now stirring up issues to try to create controversy within the industry.,” he continud. “Wiz Khalifa is an artist that we respect. Personally I like his music. I remember when he was hanging out with my boy Domingo up at Frank 151s. We watched his career blossom up from that point and behind the scenes and we’ve always been encouraging to all artists that’s up-and-coming. But this personal attack from Ghostface to him has not taken place. It was never something done within our internal family.”
Divine told XXL he is currently in the process of getting the site in question, bigghostnahmean.blogspot.com, shut down. “The lawyers are already making the call,” he said.
