(AllHipHop News) The most talked about rap battle of 2015 was between Drake and Meek Mill.
However, prior to that infamous back-and-forth, Meek was engaged in a feud with Joe Budden weeks before.
The bad blood began when Budden criticized Meek’s behavior toward his girlfriend Nicki Minaj at the 2015 BET Awards.
“Meek’s music is too hard for me to look at him with this f-cking sappy f-ck sh-t. Be the hardcore guy that I’m sure she was attracted to at some point. It’s nasty. I hate everything about it,” stated Budden on his podcast at the time. “I’m glad a dark-skinned guy is behaving this way. Light-skinned n-ggas, we’re not moving like that.”
The New Jersey native recently sat down with Angie Martinez and shared he actually enjoys Meek Mill’s new project DC4.
“I am a fan. I blame media for blowing that type of stuff up,” said Budden referring to his public conflict with Meek. “I’m totally able to have verbal disputes with emcees and be a fan of their music. So I like Meek’s album.”
The Slaughterhouse member added, “The music I heard is what we want from Meek.”
While the two rap stars were still bashing each other this past summer, Budden claimed he currently has no issues with Meek or anyone else he once had tension with like Lloyd Banks, The Game, 50 Cent, and Drake.
“I’m in a real good place,” Budden declared. “You would hope that emcees, rappers, or just artists period are able to grow and not have grudges that span over the length of ten years. I think that’s good people are able to mature in Hip Hop that way.”
