Rapper Joe Budden has joined the diss track league by slamming Drake and Meek Mill in his latest song “Making a Murderer (Part 1).” It's been nearly a year now since Drake and Mill have been feuding with each other after Nicki Minaj's boyfriend dissed the Canadian rapper accusing him of using a ghostwriter.
Budden had teased the track on Periscope earlier this week, captioning the video “Budden v Drake Round 1” and promising to release the track Thursday night.
“My words ain’t ghostwritten / I ain’t Drake,” the lyrics of Budden's song say. While it may seem he was taking sides with Mill on his accusation, the 35-year-old hit out at the Philadelphia rapper saying, "F--- him."
While talking to Pitchfork, Budden said that his diss track was not aimed at starting a beef, instead he wants to reignite what he calls an “uninspired Drizzy.”
“I come from a hip-hop where if you didn’t have something to say, then, n----, what the f--- were you rapping for,” Budden said. “I’m tired of rappers addressing things in every other manner in passion but rap.”
Drake and Mill's feud began in July 2015 following which the two rappers released several diss tracks targeting each other. While slamming Mill, Drake has also taken shots at Minaj.
