Joe Budden goes back to back with another Drake diss.
Five days after unleashing “Making a Murderer, Pt. 1,” the Slaughterhouse MC takes another round of shots at Drizzy on “Wake.”
Using a Kenny Powers skit from “Eastbound & Down” over an araabMUZIK beat, Joe Beezy disses Drake for everything from not responding to Pusha T’s disses to his alleged wave riding.
“Maybe he thinks nobody notices,” Budden raps. “Gucci wasn’t home two seconds before you rode his dick / Bodied ‘Versace’ flows / Copy, that he stole / Ay dios mio, sorry Migos, adios amigo / Was that your plot all along? / Why you ain’t do that vid with Fetty but you hopped on the song?”
Later in the track, Joe brings up Drake’s past and present OVO Sound acts.
“No really, we want a Party album,” he raps. “But you keep stealing all of Party’s album / To go and put it on your party album / It’s plenty reason to slay you / Kept going up Tuesdays and now The Weeknd just hates you.”
Joey was also strategic with a few other details. For instance, the song was unleashed at 2:31 a.m., the same time specified on Drake’s birth certificate.
It also features a Toronto Blue Jays-themed cover following Drake’s “Back to Back” artwork. Drizzy’s version featured Joe Carter celebrating a victory in the 1993 World Series. Budden’s cover features the Blue Jays’ Jose Batista getting punched in the face by Texas Rangers’ Rougned Odor.
Budden’s beef with Drake has been mostly one-sided, at least in the direct sense of diss tracks. It began when Joe claimed Views felt “uninspired” on his podcast. After that, he said Drizzy’s “4PM in Calabasas” featured thinly-veiled, subliminal jabs at him. He also believes that the 6 God fired shots at him on “No Shopping,” his upcoming collaboration with French Montana.
Joe and araabMUZIK are currently promoting their upcoming album as Rage and the Machine. Just before dropping “Making a Murderer, Pt. 1,” the duo released the first single, “Flex,” featuring Fabolous and Tory Lanez.
