Joe Budden’s known to beef with a lot of rappers.
That’s why he’s now battling both Drake and Meek Mill, who are (maybe?) still battling each other. It all really collided yesterday (June 29) when Meek responded to a tweet Joe wrote reading, “F**k Meek." It was probably a response to reports that the Philly rapper was coming for Budden on a track, to which he responded with the words, “God is good.”
Now, it seems like things have escalated quickly as Meek called out JB on Instagram with a (now-deleted) post and caption reading, “Nobody ain’t Tryna come at that Shermhead/crackhead Joebuddens this n***a got the blogs to say I’m about to diss him,” he wrote, “We running down on n****s off the internet… He ‘s infatuated with rappers lives n***a a podcaster now lol.”
Of course Joe Budden wasn’t going to let that go. In a series of now-deleted tweets he essentially began a new bout on Meek’s Eastern front. “Don’t worry, I was done being reactionary months ago, I’ll initiate, u take your time, diss bars clearly aren’t your thing…I apologized once, now repent,” he wrote. “Grab a pad quick n***a, it’s coming.” He continued via a still-live tweet, “Don’t speak my name to a fan… Say it to me n***a. Stand behind your ability to rap.”
Another element of Joe Budden/Meek Mill’s beef could’ve surfaced from comments Joe made on Nicki Minaj earlier this month. He called her “stupid” for continuing to date him.
All of these new developments come just days after Budden previewed what sounds like a diss aimed at Drake, making this thing a full beef triangle. He had previously called the Toronto rapper’s latest album “uninspired,” which caused Drizzy to throw some subs Joe’s way.
It looks like it’s World War Rappers 100 (or however many times it’s been, we’ve lost count). Who will come out victoriou, or embarrassed? Let us know in the comment section below.
