During his performance at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit last night (August 16), Drizzy brought out the most acclaimed rapper to ever hail from the Motor City, simultaneously obliterating the rumored bout he had with Eminem and making Budden take a big L in their beef. It's a win-win for him.
As Em rose from an opening in the middle of the stage and walked toward fans who were losing their minds, Drake proclaimed him "the greatest rapper ever to get on the microphone." Pretty high praise for someone we believed might’ve thought he could go at him lyrically. The duo then performed “Forever.”
Budden, of course, wasn’t going to go quietly. Just after Drake and Em’s D-City moment, just about everyone on Twitter was watching what JB’s next move would be since he’s known to reply to beef situations promptly.
Instead of a written response or an “lol,” Budden may’ve also decided to go the subliminal route. He posted a link of his song “Flex” featuring Torey Lanez (who Drake’s been known to have beef with) and Fabolous. If this is a response, is he saying he’s going to flex on Drake or is he admitting Drake flexed on him?
His next tweet came as a literal reply after a Twitter user asked him, “How you feeling bro?” His response: “Grateful.”
The supporting cast is getting pretty shallow for Joe Budden as his Slaughterhouse label boss chose business over blood.
Check out what could possibly be Joe Budden’s response to Eminem’s onstage appearance with Drake below.
