Ray J, born William Ray Norwood Jr., 42, appeared on the episode live while former B2K member Raz B, real name De’Mario Monte Thornton, 37, phoned in.
In the video clip, Yee mentioned recent reports of the two singers being seen in public “tussling.” However, Ray was quick to shoot down any insinuation the pair are not on good terms. He stated:
“It was a brother like conversation, a push and shove kind of thing.”
Raz B followed up, giving a little more detail about the incident, and added:
“Ray is my big bro…it wasn’t time for the conversation so I snatched his pants like ‘yo, come outside so we can chop this up’…I tried to playoff the push,”
The “One Wish” singer additionally stated that the entire situation was light and that everyone should know the two would never seriously fight. It seems Ray has been one of the few individuals Raz B has maintained an ongoing friendship with. As we’ve previously reported, the boyband member has fallen out with the 3 other members of 90s group B2K – Omarion, Lil’ Fizz, and J-Boog.
Further into the interview, Yee commented that some social media users were questioning if the altercation was a stunt to promote their boxing show. While Ray was quick to agree the situation could certainly help awareness of the series, Raz B was initially hesitant to confirm the match. Ray J then stated:
“It helps if Raz wanna do the right thing…if not it’s just a waste of time.”
He then outright asked Raz B if the fight is officially a go, to which Raz responded:
