If you’re reading this it’s too late…. On the May 4th, 2016 episode of his I’ll Name This Podcast Later, Joe Budden said the following about Drake’s latest release Views. “I think that kid on that album (Views) that I heard sounds real fuc*ing uninspired. That’s what I think. I thinkthat the music is real good. You can’t fool a real ni*ga. That music sounds good and I enjoyed it. 40, you sound amazing, 40 continues to progress. Drake, you do not.” Further, in a follow-up post to clarify, Joe explained that he didn’t think the subject matter between So Far Gone and Views has differed very much and wondered why Drake now sounds so unenthusiastic about achieving all the goals he envisioned upon arriving on the music scene.
Joe Budden believes in energy. His energy is just different. Joe gets enough attention; he is not looking for it; and certainly not from Drake. This “beef” started in the 6 and now we here. While the industry seems to lack and hold Drake accountable for his energy---Joe Budden embraces the challenge.
