Action Bronson appeared on ESPN's SportsNation earlier this month, fielding a host of questions.
Probed about the frequent comparisons between his style and Ghostface Killah, the rapper replied: "He's not rapping like this no more."
The Wu-Tang legend was, perhaps understandably, a little annoyed. Posting a video online, the clearly energised Ghostface Killah asked: "Who gives you the right to even mention my name out your motherfucking mouth?"
Action Bronson has evidently watched the video - or spotted the reported comments - and backed down on Twitter.
When ur wrong ur wrong and I was wrong. I apologized for the comments. I'll always be a stand up human. Much love.— MR. WONDERFUL (@ActionBronson) July 20, 2015
Everyone says things they regret. I respect my elders and the forefathers of this art. Once again, I'm sorry.— MR. WONDERFUL (@ActionBronson) July 20, 2015
