Hip-hop rap star-turned-hip-hop podcaster Joe Budden and Compton heavyweight The Game are back at each other’s necks for 2019 after Game’s testy commentary on Cyn Santana, Joe’s fiancée and mother of his infant son.
In preparation for his Born to Rap album, Game’s been consistently stirring a few Hollywood pots with snippets of the project’s unreleased tracks. He began his industry hit list exposé a week ago with scathingly NSFW bars about his former sexual relationship with Kim Kardashian, and apparently in a new track, used that same racy energy for Cyn. It goes without saying that Joey didn’t take kindly to the bars, and is now aiming for the Compton emcee’s head for the name-drop against the soon-to-be Mrs. Budden.
"The more I sat and thought about this, the more I said to myself, N**ga, so what?' What type of loser, face-ass n**ga is you, n**ga?’" Joey said on his Friday (February 1) episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. He made it clear that Game’s shots didn’t stick with him either since he doesn’t concern himself with what anyone did before he dated them. “To me, that’s more loser sh**,” Joe said. Not to mention, he added, Game didn’t have the guts to say it face-to-face and instead reserved the shade for a song. “You didn’t say it to me,” he said. “You said it in a song. And you can call me Game. You talking about my girl with a girl name. Watch your f**king mouth, man.”
…which Joe’s former Everyday Struggle counterpart DJ Akademiks warned of. “Even if it's true,” he said of Game’s reveal about the name-dropped ladies on the song. “That's when they told me, they got video tapes of everybody on that song. Everybody. If anybody deny it, tapes is dropping." Joey isn’t the least bit fearful of such tapes coming out though, and apparently Game isn’t moved by any of Joey’s possible retaliation either.
“@JoeBudden you can’t sue nobody for discovering the p**sy before you,” he wrote on his Instagram story after Joey’s podcast warning dropped. “I turned you into an on-air personality n**ga! Enjoy retirement p**sy!”
This could get really ugly really fast, guys.
