If you think Joe Budden is finished with delivering bars upon bars against Drake – think again. On his fourth diss song, “Just Because,” the Slaughterhouse rhymer gives Drizzy a pep talk while peppering his rhymes with a couple of zingers.
Produced by AraabMUZIK, the soul-sampled banger features Budden wondering how he and Drake reached to this current lyrical impasse. “I have a confession to make,” he says at the beginning of the song. “I love you man. Sometimes love hurts. It’s gonna hurt me more than it’s gonna hurt you though.”
The New Jersey then proceeds to drop blistering lines of advice, criticisms and quips at the 6 God.
“Now we not enemies, he just gotta bar up now,” Budden spits. “I’m still on “Energy,” let’s see if he “Charged Up” now / And I’ll be sure [Al B. Sure] he’s in the secret garden / I found with lions, tigers, bears, Tahiry, dolphins, wow.”
Burden’s latest diss song was in response to Drake taking a shot at him during his Dallas stop of his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future. “I shoulda brought Joe Budden up here to let him do ‘Pump It Up’,” he joked to the crowd. “F— them n—-s.”
In an interview with the Brilliant Idiots podcast, Budden explained that he felt disrespected after a source told him what Drake said on French Montana’s “No Shopping” song before it was 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?”
We still haven’t heard an official response song from Drake yet. At this point, Joe Budden is up 4 to 1?
