Joe Budden waited five days for a Drake reponse after releasing “Making a Murderer (Pt. 1),” to no avail, but that didn’t stop him from dropping another track aimed at Drake, this time called “Wake.”
The track, produced by araabMUZIK takes aim at all of the different artists’ waves he hopped on to use for his advantage, including The Weeknd (who has had friction with Drake in the past, and worked heavily on Take Care) and Mike Zombie (who produced “Started From the Bottom”).
“Are you lifeless? Sound like a zombie on the track
Remember “Started From the Bottom,” it was Zombie on the Track
Know who else started from the bottom? Zombie on the Track
How come after that joint I don’t see Zombie on a track?
I’m from Jersey, so Zombie I got your back”
Budden also mentioned, Migos, Fetty Wap, iLoveMakonnen. To ensure his gold place win in the petty Olympics, Joe released the track at 2:31 AM — the exact time Drake was born. Will the Drake diss get released anytime soon? According to Budden, he has heard the entire Drake diss French Montana released a snippet of a while back and became restless waiting for it to be released, so he shot first (second, if you count the subs aimed at Joe in “4pm in Calabasas”). Check out the track below.
