In a recent social media showdown, tensions between Drake and Joe Budden came to the forefront on October 7th. The source of this friction was Budden’s recent comments regarding Drake’s eighth studio album, “For All the Dogs.”
Drake, clearly irked by Budden’s remarks, took to Instagram to respond, characterizing Budden as a “failure.” In return, Budden advised Drake to mature and grow up.
Throughout this heated exchange, Birdman, a prominent figure in the music industry and a staunch supporter of Drake made his stance unequivocal. On his Instagram Stories, the founder of Cash Money Records came to Drake’s defense, urging Budden to calm down and suggesting that Budden was not suited for the world of real gangster matters, stating, “Calm down brother you not built 4this real gangsta sh**.”
@champagnepapi GOAT.” Birdman also addressed Charlamagne Tha God, who had been engaged in a feud with Drake in the weeks leading up to the album release, acknowledging their differences but expressing respect for him. He concluded by emphasizing his respect for both Charlamagne Tha God and Drake, stating, “I think you mean well, and I respek you, even though we had our differences. But I respek you @cthagod, but respek @champagnepapi @cashmoneyofficial.”
