Despite any tension Joe Budden and Gille Da Kid may have had in the past, the Jersey rapper turned podcaster is willing to go head-to-head against the Philly native.
Gillie Da Kid initiated the conversation while interviewing Akademiks earlier this month. While a “Verzuz” clash between the two isn’t necessarily on the cards, Gille said he would “sweep” Joe Budden “under a f*ckin’ rug” if it ever was.
Joe Budden, never one to shy away from potential beef, took to his podcast to address the situation. He and his co-hosts played a clip of Gillie’s remarks and Joe made his feelings clear – he’s down for the challenge.
“Now, what I will say before this pod ends…Gillie Da Kid, Wallo, Million Dollaz Worth of Game. I’ll oblige,” said Budden. “I will. Who knows. Could be right. Gillie, I will do a Verzuz with you, I will.”
However, Joe Budden was realistic about the likelihood of getting a call from Swizz Beats and Timbaland.
“Neither one of us are big enough to ever make it to the Verzuz stage, but I’m cool with that. We could do like a mixtape Verzuz. Leave all the major album joints out. We don’t need ‘Pump It Up’ or ‘Yeah That’s Us.’”
Furthermore, Joe Budden is willing to make it happen on a smaller scale and would give Gilly a home-court advantage to make it happen.
“Both doing great in podcast land. I’ll do a Verzuz with you if you want,” Joe continued, offering to meet Gillie on his home turf in Philadelphia. “We can do it wherever you feel most comfortable at. I’m down!”
