Slaughterhouse rapper Joe Budden took a dig at Drake and Meek Mill over a media heavy-tussle between the rappers by releasing “Making a Murderer (Part 1)” on Thursday. The six-minute rap was released in response to the cryptic disses in “4 PM in Calabasas.”
Budden takes a shot at Mill and then goes on to play an excerpt from his 2009 web series “Joe Budden TV,” where he first met Drake, the Vibe reported. On the episode, Drake voiced praises for him and said he wasn’t in for rap beefs. The description for that particular YouTube video still reads, “if u couldn’t tell by now, I support this dude whole heartedly…. as it turns out, he doesn’t plan on dissing any1 anytime soon…”
It has been seven years since, and Drake has made rivals out of Kendrick Lamar, Mill and the latest in the line, Budden. In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Budden said that “Making a Murder (Part 1)” was belted out to show Drake what it means being in a competitive hip-hop zone.
“When they roll up, that dude won’t want to live his raps,” raps Joe Budden. “And see the 6 upside down and want to switch it back.”
It all started when Budden gave a critical review of Drake’s “Views” earlier in May. Soon after, French Montana shared a 10-second video of new Drake collaboration. And then came the “4PM in Calabasas” with subliminal lines, which only the ones involved could truly decode, the Pitchfork reported.
It remains to be seen, though, whether Drake will respond to the recent tirades. But according to another report from Vibe, citing an Instagram post from OVO camp, Drizzy will soon release an answer to Making A Murderer (Part 1).
Budden also take a jibe at Jay Z, referring to the past beef with him, the Rap-Up reported.
“Since the OG’s Hov, here’s what I wanna know,” he rolls out. “If ain’t no real ni**as allowed the f**k would I wanna go? / That’s thinkin’ back to Jay, now let’s get back to Drake / Both too big to respond to all I have to say / Still with all their success and all their accolades / The universe makes it so they come right back to me.”
