When Drake released Views, opinions came from every angle. The opinion that sent the most shockwaves was Joe Budden’s as clips of his passionate, harsh criticism of the multi-platinum project spread across social media.
Shortly after the podcast aired with the full critique, French Montana snapchatted a preview of his upcoming collab “No Shopping” that features Drake and what many interpreted as a response to Budden. At the end of the clip you can hear Drake spit, “pump, pump it up” in the usual condescending tone he’s become accustomed to using in songs addressing other artists.
These rumors of Drake taking jabs at Budden escalated even further when during the most recent episode of OVO Sound Radio he released “4PM in Calabasas.”
This song may have been the last straw as the New Jersey vet spent a good part of the following podcast dissecting the record and pointing out each line that he feels was directed towards him and now has followed up with a preview of what appears to be a Drake diss.
In the video clip at the top of the page, you can see Budden vibing to a flip of Drake’s “Madonna” from If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and you can hear the line “But my words ain’t ghostwritten I ain’t Drake/That’s all gimmick I’m authentic I ain’t Drake.”
Check out the clip above.
