Joe Budden’s “Making A Murderer (Part 1)” track has been out for only about 10 hours, which is about 9 hours and 59 minutes more than the piranhas of social media needed to go into a feeding frenzy. The track is the first official on-wax attack in a war of words that has been quietly brewing for the last few months between the two rappers. Reaction from listeners has been passionate on both sides as they argue over the finer points of the beat, the lyrics and the chance of Drake responding with a track of his own.
Meek Mill was the first person mentioned in the track to respond. In the song, Budden raps “No alliances with Meek, it’s still fuck him too.” Taking to Instagram, Meek posted a photo of himself with the caption: “He’s been dead since 2003 it’s evident …. We don’t talk to dead people unless they presidents.”
OVO audio engineer Noel hinted he’s working on something new. Could it be Drake’s response?
Daylyt, who has crossed paths with both Budden and Drake during his time in battle rap, recorded a full song in response.
And Twitter did what Twitter does best, in all of its glorious snark.
This Drake and Joe Budden beef is just trying to take our minds off the real news here that Bryson Tiller went platinum with no features

While Joe Budden is making diss tracks Drake is smashing every chick that Joey ever liked a pic of on the gram. So can respond with facts.

Drake and Meek Mill just aren't anywhere close to the caliber of MC that Joe Budden is, but their bias fans will say Budden lost already.

Explaining Joe Budden vs Drake to the causal rap listener is like walking your girlfriend through the rules of her first football game.
