You would have risked everything that you had ever worked for to release a tape that was recorded when Eminem was 17 years old? If that tape had been recorded while Eminem was in his 20's or 30's, its release would have resulted in a more favourable outcome for Benzino.
As it was, it brought The Source to its knees and - along with his rap beef with Eminem - it ripped Benzino's career to shreds.
That´s journalism ! u find a story ,u do your research and print it . That´s the job! The problem was that benzino´s bi*ch a.ss was trying to be a star and ether people ,using his power .He was trying to be a dictator "back down,bow down" and it backfired !Cant mix journalism and politics
Again if u had those tapes and u sit on it, go find another job ...

The Source Magazine's integrity as a news publication was already fractured well before the tapes came out; with conflicts of interest everywhere you turned. When Benzino and the owner of the magazine had both decided to make it their mission to destroy Eminem's credibility as a member of the Hip Hop culture - based squarely on his skin colour - journalistic ethos no longer had any place at the magazine. By the time the tapes were released, the reputation of the magazine as a journalistic publication had already shattered into pieces.

Releasing the tapes in that kind of context is like a politician getting caught cheating on his wife and then running for office on family values. Most newspapers and magazines could not have been faulted for releasing those tapes. For The Source, it was a dumb move.

I never understood that.

Somebody is using Black music to make racist songs while telling the world his best friend growing up was a Black man?

Interscope did a great job through the media to cover up and sugar-coat that scandal.


I wonder why people say the beef with Emenim ended Benzinos rap-career, he was never a big star moving a bunch of records...

Yeah, the Investors booted Benzino and Dave Mays from the magazine and completely revamped it in late '05/early '06, to the point where the new editor apologized to the readers for Benzino and Mays turning the magazine into their mouthpiece to beef with everyone they had a problem with at the time (Eminem of course, 50 Cent & G-Unit Records, Dr. Dre, Nas, Angie Martinez, Ebro Darden [Program Director at Hot 97], and Tracy Cloherty [Another higher-up at Hot 97], among others), forcing The Source writers to write articles dissing the above people under threat of firing, and even for failing to mail subscribers all their issues. In short, Mays and Benzino damn near ran The Source like a Dictatorship, so it's no wonder he's resentful about losing it--Who else was going to promote his and his group Made Men/The Almighty RSO's music?

I used to subscribe for like a few years during the heat of all the beef with Ja/murder Inc/Benzino vs. Shady/Aftermath. I remember one issue, the Hip Hop Quotable was him dissing Em on Die Another Day.

Then there was the review of Made Men's album that Benzino wrote himself and used an alias, and then everyone found out that the writer didnt' exist. He gave the Made Men album 4.5 mics I think he gave Obie Trice's first album like 3 mics

Zino had a point during the feud though. He was just didn't express it the right way. Of course he's trying to remold his image now so not shocked he regrets it all. Dude lost his magazine and whatever fame he had left as a solo artist over some dumbass hip hop beef.

And these are by far the hardest joints Zino has ever been on:


PROPS!!!!

Benzino won that beef in the streets tho, word to Proof. Eminem was somewhere hiding and getting ex CIA agents to protect him cause he feared for his life.
