Joe Budden Follows Up With 2nd Drake Diss-Track and Then an Open Letter. Will Hip Hop Allow Drake To Remain Silent? (Audio)


There is no doubt that Joe has seen a bump in his new and old Podcast ratings as a result of this one-sided beef.  Just imagine what his ratings would be if Drake actually fired back.  That amongst other things prompted Joe to write this letter and post this photo of himself and Drake.   Here is what he wrote:


The MC’s tho kid, they’ll always be for the culture, we’ll support & champion you as you continue to push the needle and move the genre forward to newly discovered heights, real MC’s can never hate you, we’ll always want tomorrow to be better than yesterday, I see u as that “tomorrow”… I’m proud of that, for I know you’re 1 of us deep down, success never changes that, ask Em & Hov…. But the second your arrogance gets the better of you and you start to believe you’re above the very cloth you’re cut from, the cloth that changed life for your entire lineage, the MC’s will be there to remind you, success or not.

Is this Joe’s attempt to stay relevant?  YES!  OF COURSE! That’s a celebrity’s full time job.  His whole job is to stay relevant.  That’s why anyone famous does anything, so how can we criticize him for that?  He’s just doing his job.

The question is, will Drake help him out?

The better question is, will we demand that of Drake or will we give him a pass?

Only time will tell.
