Joe Budden Responds to Eminem Diss: 'I've Been Better Than You This Entire Fu*king Decade'
The rapper addressed Eminem’s “Fall” diss on The Joe Budden Podcast: “You have not said anything for the better part of a whole f*cking decade. You have rhymed a bunch of words.”
Joe Budden has some words for Eminem.
The retired rapper responded to Em namedropping him on his Kamikaze single, “Fall,” on the latest episode of his The Joe Budden Podcast Wednesday.
“Since you’ve been in this megastar cocoon. That’s what happens to the megastars, y’all stay in cocoons. you popped off quick. They sheltered you your whole fucking career. Who was selling records like that? You fucking superstar niggas been sheltered and bored. Machine Gun Kelly is right. Y’all been slaves to your own superstardom,” Budden began, alluding to the beed between MGK and EM.
Budden continued, “I heard the album, and because I don’t think you know all the members that were in the group, I don’t really think you know our history,” he continued. “Let me tell you what Joe Budden has thought this entire time. I’ve been better than you this entire fucking decade!”
Budden charges that he’s a “content” rapper, while Eminem’s lyrics are vapid and lack substance.
“In my rapper brain, I’m a content nigga. You gotta say something. You have not said anything for the better part of a whole fucking decade,” he claims. “How could I be mesmerized by someone I thought I was better than? You don’t think it’s odd that you’ve said my name more as adversaries more than when I was there.”
The back and forth may be staticky enough to spark Budden out of retirement.
“You inspire me the way my harsh criticism inspired you. You go spit something to make the superior MC, me, get out of his bed,” Budden says. “In the event you want to address me, you’ll do it outside of your album roll out. The second you do it, I’m on your ass. I am going to cut your fucking ass up.”
