It seems as though Drake has finally answered Joe Budden’s numerous disses, sorta kinda. Drake is currently on the Summer Sixteen Tour with Future and during his show in Dallas last night, Drizzy was in a good mood, complimenting the crowd’s energy before throwing a soft jab at Joey.
“I shoulda brought Joe Budden up here to let him do ‘Pump It Up’,” he joked, referencing the Slaughterhouse member’s 2003 hit.
For now, that’s all Drake has really had to say about the three diss tracks Joe has dropped over the past couple of weeks, though French Montana has said he didn’t think Drake’s verse in question from the song “No Shopping” was directed at Joey. Clearly, no one believe that, least of all Joe.
Yesterday (July 21), Joe did clear the air about why he’s been throwing shots at Drake in an interview on the Brilliant Idiots podcast. On the podcast, Budden explained to hosts Charlamagne tha God and Andrew Schultz that he felt disrespected after a source told him what Drake said on “No Shopping” before the song was ever released.
“I’m hurt. I am hurt. I’m appalled that n—- who know my pen game, he know I don’t care about none of that fame, success, attention, none of that,” he said. “He know what I do. And you want to use your celebrity to do that to me? We smoked hookah together. How could you do that?”
Joe also said that he’s still waiting on a clear response from Drake. Guess we’ll have to see if this counts?
