It’s important for music fans to separate Joe Budden the rapper from Joe Budden the man. When Joe Budden decides to focus on rhyming he can go toe-to-toe with anyone, including Drake.
Budden decides to poke the bear with his new track ‘Making a Murderer Pt.1’ and explained why during an interview with Pitchfork.
“I’m not addressing Drake, or addressing Meek because I am malicious toward either of them or I wish either one of them harm or ill will,” he says. “I am celebrating hip-hop. I want the people who I deem–I want the people who are talented to be talented.”
“I just want this to be a moment in hip-hop because it is” Budden says. “Me, as an MC, I’m my own worse critic. I’ve listened to that song [“Making a Murderer (Part 1)”] a million times and it’s chilling. It’s chilling when you just understand it. It’s a clear message, line in the sand, to all MCs. I’m not playing no more.”
Seems like a publicity grab for Budden’s new album but if the rhymes are dope then it’s appreciated.
