Shortly after Joe Budden blasted The Game for his lyrics about Cyn Santana, the Compton-bred rapper is firing back. On Monday (February 4), Mr. L.A. Confidential jumped on Instagram and baited the State of the Culture co-host by taking credit for Budden’s career and rubbing his former fling with Santana in his face.

“@joebudden You can’t sue nobody for discovering the pussy before you #christophercolumbusheadassnigga #indianswasthere1st,” he wrote. “I turned you into an on air personality nigga! Enjoy retirement pussy (Quavo voice).”

The Game and the Slaughterhouse vet’s beef was reignited following Budden’s reaction to a song included on The Game’s forthcoming album, Born To Rap. In addition to recalling one of his sexual escapades with Kim Kardashian, he also drops a sexually explicit lyric about Santana, Budden’s current fiancée.

He addressed it on a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. 

“The more I sat and thought about this, the more I said to myself, ‘Nigga, so what?'” he said. “What type of loser, face-ass nigga is you, nigga? I don’t give two fucks about what anyone did before I was involved with them. To me, that’s more loser shit.”

Budden seemed mostly upset Game didn’t hit him up first before unveiling the track.

“You didn’t say it to me,” he said. “You said it in a song. And you can call me, Game. You talking about my girl with a girl name. Watch your fucking mouth, man.”
