Mere moments after they hit the stage, they started to trade barbs and seriously shade each other over crooked business dealings and more.

Who are Emmanuel Hudson and Spoken Reasons?

In case you forgot or aren’t familiar, these two are among the first stars who really hit it big on social media and parlayed that attention into massive success.

They went viral in 2012 with the song “WHY YOU ASKING ALL THEM QUESTIONS?,” which saw them explain how insecure men and women can think. To date, the video for the song has more than 66 million views on YouTube.

After the video took off, many people expected Hudson and Spoken Reasons to go on and do big things together. But it didn’t pan out that way. Hudson began to pursue a solo career, putting out fun songs and booking shows like Wild ‘N Out, while Spoken Reasons continued to make videos for YouTube.

Over the years, there were rumblings that the artists had fallen out, but it was unclear what led to that until Spoken Reasons appeared on the hit MTV show.

What happened between Emmanuel Hudson and Spoken Reasons on ‘Wild ‘N Out’

The drama started when Hudson and Spoken Reasons went head to head during the “Wildstyle” segment of the show. After Spoken Reasons made a crack at their famous video and how Hudson portrayed the “b*tch,” Hudson fully sounded off on his former partner.

He claimed they never made another video after “WHY YOU ASKING ALL THEM QUESTIONS?” because Spoken Reasons allegedly “snatched” the check that came with it. Hudson also took jabs at the comedian’s career and said he wanted to smack him before calling on Spoken Reasons to apologize.

In his response, Spoken Reasons suggested that he didn’t owe Hudson anything and refused to say sorry.

The episode ended without any apparent resolution between the two. But Hudson later went on Instagram Live and claimed that Spoken Reasons had allegedly apologized to him when the show wrapped. However, he noted in the same video that his ex-partner had allegedly continued to trash-talk him even after the rumored apology.

Taking to his own Instagram Live, Spoken Reasons claimed that they had made money off of each other and did not appear to feel that he had done anything wrong. He also dropped an apparent diss video on YouTube called “Don’t Owe You Sh*t.”
