Joe Budden has taken to social media in recent weeks to express his displeasure with the Toronto and Philadelphia based artists.
The Slaughterhouse member first mentioned Drake on his podcast titled, I’ll Name This Podcast Later, following the release of Drake’s Views in May. Budden claimed that Drake sounded “uninspired” throughout the project but praised the album’s top notch production. Drake then released his single “4pm in Calabasas,” a single that contained subtle shots at Budden. Budden took to his podcast again to break down Drake’s single line by line, pointing out where he felt Drake had referenced him.
The rivalry has been taken to the next level, with Budden dropping “Making A Murderer” on Thursday. The Drake diss track set social media ablaze, prompting fans to wonder if Drake will respond. His producer, Noel Cadastre, took to Instagram to hint at Drake spending time in the
studio. Budden responded on Twitter, stating that “[Cadastre] will need a lot more pics.”
In the midst of this growing battle, Budden has focused a portion of his attention to Drake’s former sparring partner, Meek Mill. Their back and forth dates back for nearly a year, as the two traded shots over Twitter in July of 2015. Their short-lived squabble consisted of jokes and memes from Mill, followed by a quick appearance from Nicki Minaj. The beef had simmered for some time, only to resurface in thepast few days.
Budden had taken to Twitter again to send some shots directed at the Philly rapper. Meek
responded with an Instagram post, appearing to caption the picture with some bars referencing Budden, insinuating that he would release a diss track in the near future. Meek has since dispelled
that notion, so Budden took it upon himself to initiate the beef by mentioning Meek in “Making A Murderer” alongside Drake.
We will have to wait and see how the two beefs play out in the near future, as Budden appears to have more material to drop.
