Early Wednesday morning, less than a week after releasing his initial Drake dis, “Making a Murderer (Part 1),” Budden was at it once more. Again linking with araabMUZIK for the beat, Joey takes aim at Aubrey, opening up with a vocal sample from Eastbound and Down's Kenny Powers.
From there, he tries to poke holes in Drake's typically impenetrable armor, accusing the rapper, at one point, of being a vulture:
"You leverage your celeb, taking waves over / That's territorial takeover / Maybe he think nobody notices / Gucci wasn't home two seconds before you rode his dick / Bodied 'Versace' flows, copy that, he stole / Aye, dios mio, sorry Migos / Adios amigo / Was that your plot all along? / Why you ain't do that vid with Fetty but you hopped on the song? / No really, we want a Party album / But you keep stealing all of Party's album / To go and put it on your party album / It's plenty reason to slay you / Kept going up Tuesdays and now The Weeknd just hates you"
The SparkNotes version of why all of this is happening, by the way, is this: Joe said Views sounded "uninspired"; Joe thought a clip of a Drake verse that French Montana posted hinted that a dis was on the way; Drake released "4PM in Calabasas," which Joe felt was riddled with subliminals. There are also other, older layers -- things like Joe feeling like he paved the way for Drake a bit -- but Budden gets into some of that on "Making a Murderer (Part 1)."
On "Wake," he also borrows from Drake's 2015 Meek Mill dis, "Back to Back," turning his "I waited four days, n***a, where y'all at?" Meek jab into, "I waited five days, n***a, where y'all at?" He also used a similar artwork to the one used on that dis — but instead of a picture of a victorious Toronto Blue Jays moment, it's one where a Blue Jays player is getting punched in the face.
Drake still has yet to respond, and Joey doesn't seem to think he will or should. In a now-deleted tweet, he wrote:
All we can do is wait and see.
