Detta efter att Budden menat att Drake "rappar för barn".

I samband med släppet av “For All The Dogs” kritiserade Joe Budden Toronto-rapparen och menade att han “rappade för barn”. I sin podcast sa Budden bland annat:

“[Drake is] rapping for the children. I had to look up how old this n***a was when I finished listening to the album … You gonna be 37 years old. Get the fuck away from some of these younger n-ggas, and stop fucking these 25-year-olds. … Why are you still fucking the 25-year-olds? You’re a 37-year-old billionaire.”

Något som inte togs emot väl av Drake.

I ett långt svar i kommentarsfältet till ett inlägg av Akademiks, där Budden pratar om skivan och Drake, totalsågar han Budden och kallar honom bland annat “ett misslyckande” och en “quitter”.

“You have failed at music. You left it behind to do what you are doing in this clip cause this is what actually pays your bills. For any artist watching this just remember you are watching a failure give their opinion on his idea of a recipe for success…a quitter give their opinion on how to achieve longevity…”, skriver han och fortsätter:

“You switched careers cause the things that pop into your brain had you broke living cheque to cheque and the raps you write had 450 men showing up to your shows in dusty Enyce jeans to screw up their face to Mood Muzik 29 and pretend you are the goat.”

Drake uppmanade sedan andra artister att inte bry sig om vad folk säger om dem. Han kallade också Budden för “the posterchild of frustration”.

“Pls to any artist that’s doing what they feel is right don’t let these opinions affect your mindset after the fact…this guy is the poster child of frustration and surrendering,” he wrote. “You retired and we never hung up your jersey we don’t even remember your number. We know you for doing this…you withdrew from rap not cause you accomplished all you need to it’s cause it wasn’t working for you.” 

“I never want anybody in the generations to think that the whole “everybody’s entitled to their opinion” is a real thing…this is a man projecting his own self hate and the fact I did and continue to do everything he wanted to do for himself. If you need it put in simpler terms I own a 767…he owns a modest house in the 973 and flies first class on special occasions.”

Budden fick senare nys om Drakes kommentar och svarade:

“You’ll grow up sooner or later… Father time is undefeated.”

En som valt att lägga sig i “beefen” och bidra med sin åsikt är programledaren Ebro Darden. Via X kommenterade han de bådas uttalanden och såg bådas perspektiv på saken. Även om han verkar luta åt Buddens favör.

“Joe Budden didn’t fail at music. He can still make music. It seems Joe Budden chose not to play the ‘music business game’ and continually chase charts and do anything to stay relevant in music. Drake is choosing to keep playing to the same recipe that has given him success.”
