If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Joe Budden, it’s that he isn’t shy about mincing words when it comes to his feelings about today’s hip-hop stars, as proven by his viral spat with Drake earlier this fall. On the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, Budden took aim at Young Boy Never Broke Again, discrediting his merit as a superstar.
“That n—a is trash, he’s horrible. He is really bad,” Budden said. “That thing happened with him where when he was out, the label pushed the button and did some YouTube sh-t, so all the little kids had to come to the gathering and tell you about how great he is and how many views he has and all of that. Now that the label is backed up, we got three to four of those projects while he’s been in Utah on house arrest.”
YoungBoy barked back with a vicious diatribe of his own. “The last thing I dropped was Decided 2, and my album is still in the top 10 [on Apple Music] p—y ass n—a,” he said on Instagram. “Don’t speak on me, I don’t play that s–t. Don’t rat on me either, you pu–y ass bi–h.”
He later invited Budden to have a proper sit-down with him in Utah, where he’s currently on house arrest. “You stupid dumb b–h, your d–k don’t even get hard no more clown ass n—a. Ain’t no sabotaging me, b—h. F–k wrong with that n—a, man. Don’t rat on me b—h. And I don’t want to argue with your b–h ass. B–ch you do all them interviews, come on Grave Digger Mountain and talk to me n—a, if you can’t do that you bi–h made shut your f–king mouth.”
Later, YoungBoy’s advocate, Birdman, joined the fray and sent warning shots to Budden, urging him to stop “f–kin with something you should leave alone.” YoungBoy is currently under house arrest in Salt Lake City tied to a 2020 arrest in Los Angeles tied to gun and drug charges.
As previously mentioned, Budden was embroiled in a verbal skirmish with Drake last October, after he dubbed For All The Dogs a lackluster album. That resulted in Drake firing shots his way on tracks and on social media.
“@joebudden you have failed at music,” Drake began his lengthy message. “You left it behind to do what you are doing in this clip cause this is what actually pays your bills. For any artist watching this just remember you are watching a failure give their opinion on his idea of a recipe for success… a quitter give their opinion on how to achieve longevity…”
