Two more chapters in the Drake vs. Joe Budden saga were written Saturday (July 16).
First, Drizzy finally unveiled his verse on French Montana’s “No Shopping,” which goes at the Slaughterhouse rapper who has been hitting him in diss tracks and on social media for the last several weeks. Then only hours after Drake’s verse dropped, Joe Budden launched another attack, hitting the Toronto superstar with “Afraid” — a third track filled with personals.
Here are some of the best responses to Saturday’s back and forth that we could find around the Internet.

There's NO WAY a rap FAN, not a Drake dickrider, a FAN can say Drake's 4 bars was doper than all 3 Budden disses, those ppl u simply ignore

45+ Twitter gone live or die by their "hip hop knowledge" but can't explain why Budden's diss tracks aren't putting a dent in Drake's image.

Joe Budden can SMASH Drake lyrically all he wants on 1000000 songs. He still sitting in the washed up rapper section while Drake not.
