During the interview, Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez were joined by Marisa Mendez, who is a co-host on Budden’s I’ll Name This Podcast Later. Mendez joined the crew to give another storyline to the whole feud.
Budden pinpoints the start of the beef when he heard Drake’s subliminals on French Montana’s “No Shopping.” As his duty as an MC, Budden says he released four disses—“Making a Murderer (Pt. 1),” “Wake,” “Afraid,” and “Just Because”—to prove a point. The interview also touches on Budden’s criticisms of VIEWS , and where the beef stands today. “I mean, it’s been a non-issue for me. It’s been dead for me. At this point, it’s the fans and the media keeping this going. I don’t have any more bars for him,” he says.
Near the end of the interview, Budden walks out because he felt he wasted his time. “Next time I come here for an interview, send my manager the talk points,” he says, arguing that they focused too much on Drake and not enough promoting his upcoming album, Rage & The Machine, with araabMuzik.
It is pretty uncomfortable to watch. Check out the full interview above.
