Benzino Said Coi Leray Is “Pushing A False Narrative” About Him

Coi Leray Accuses Father Benzino of Envy
After a standout year in 2022, Coi Leray aimed to surpass her success in 2023. Dropping her sophomore LP, COI, a few months ago, the Boston-born artist continued to make waves. While the album's numbers were slightly lower than her debut, several tracks gained traction on platforms like TikTok. Leray also collaborated with stars such as Lola Brooke, RAYE, and Busta Rhymes, contributing catchy tunes for her fans.

Despite her accomplishments, one aspect of Leray's life remains troubled, her relationship with her father, Benzino. A heartwarming moment between them was shared in September, responding to what seemed like a diss from Latto. However, based on Leray's recent interview with Angie Martinez, it's evident that feelings have changed. Leray expressed in the interview that she believes The Source legend is "envious" of her success.
"At first, it was rocky because I felt like he couldn't handle my success," she shared with the radio personality. Leray maintained a composed tone, acknowledging her father's humanity. However, Benzino responded with an angry Instagram rant, rejecting the idea of envy. He questioned how he could be envious of someone he raised, nurtured, provided for, influenced, and loves dearly.

Expressing frustration with Leray's portrayal of him, Benzino criticized the influence of the industry and the internet on the younger generation. He deemed it embarrassing and sad, emphasizing that he has never seen an artist criticize their parents in such a way in his 40 years in hip-hop.

Benzino didn't stop there; he also directed criticism toward Angie Martinez, suggesting she harbors dislike towards him and is being manipulative and messy. Despite the challenges, Benzino asserted his commitment to personal growth and vowed not to regress for anything.

In this ongoing family drama, the tension between Coi Leray and Benzino is showcased not just in their public statements but also in the complex dynamics of a father-daughter relationship strained by the challenges of fame and the unforgiving scrutiny of the public eye.
