Joe Budden has been serving up some serious beef at the expense of Drake. While this has been going on for a few weeks, Eminem is rumoured to be finishing up his own dish.

According to Hip Hop DX, thing started to heat up when Budden said Drake hid “behind [his] celebrity.” It was during Budden’s “The Brilliant Idiots” podcast last month when the Slaughterhouse rapper also said Drake sounded uninspired in “VIEWS.”

In retaliation, Drake released a verse on French Montana’s “No Shopping,” which was aimed directly at Budden.

“Pump, pump, pump it up

She got a good head on her

But I pump it up

I’m not a one-hit wonder

They all know my stuff”

Apparently, Budden knew the attack was coming because he was tipped off to a clip of Drake rapping the lyrics in his 2003 hit, “Pump It Up.”

In addition, there is Budden’s “Making A Murderer,” which lasts a long six minutes and is aimed at all aspects of Drake’s career. “It’s so much cold you can’t even understand what’s going on there,” the 35-year-old rapper explained. “I would like to think if I’m guessing, it gave him some pause.”

Complex reports that Eminem is gearing up to join the fight, and Ebro has sent a warning to Drake.

On Wednesday, Ebro shared that he and Drake had a talk, where the radio presenter told the “Hotline Bling” rapper that Eminem was itching to join in. “[Drake] laughed and he was like ‘That’s not gonna happen… And if he did, I got something for him too,’” Ebro explained.

Ebro also claimed that Drake said the only reason Budden has not released the direct messages between the two, is because Drake hinted that Budden has a drug problem.

“I hope you get well in this tough time,” Drake reportedly sent Budden. Ebro, on his part, translated this as Budden having trouble with drug use.
