Joe Budden Responds To Eminem's Diss On 'Kamikaze' Album

The rapper-turned-podcaster uses his show to fire back at Marshall.

(AllHipHop News) Joe Budden was among the targets on Eminem's Kamikaze album. Many Hip Hop fans have been waiting five days to see how Joey would respond to his Shady Records boss.

Em took issue with the former Slaughterhouse member's criticism of his 2017 LP Revival. On the Kamikaze track "Fall," the Detroit native rapped, "Somebody tell Budden before I snap, he better fasten it or have his body bag get zipped. The closest thing hes had to hits is smacking b*tches."

Instead of dropping a song like Machine Gun Kelly, Budden chose to counter Em via his podcast. A clip from this week's episode was uploaded to Twitter, and the video features Joe claiming he's been superior to Marshall Mathers in the 2010s.

Ive been better than you this entire f*cking decade," declared Budden. "Can't say that back then. But in my rapper brain, I'm a content n*gga. You gotta say something. You have not said anything for the better part of a whole f*cking decade. You have rhymed a bunch of words.

UPDATE:

The full three-hour episode of The Joe Budden Podcast is now live. Check out it below.

I think lyrically joe might be one of three or four people on the planet that can come close to Em but he’s still behind, just take a look at the shady cypher 2.0 w/ slaughterhouse and em freestyling, I still think joes verse might’ve been written a bit, but em uses real time subjects to keep going and u can tell Joe Budden is in back of shady like a Stan/fan going crazy to what Em is saying at one point joe walks away like when everyone leaves the court after a crazy dunk in street ball

Also in killshot eminem goes through all of rap devil and rebuts everything from old age to the beards weird, to MGK eating what looks like cereal, to the best bars in the whole song “ got the Diddy ok to shoot your video just to fucking dig your own grave, got you at your own wake, u ain’t never made no list nex biggie next to jay next to Taylor swift who sells crazy amounts of albums and she’s pop and em’s right there next to even her for a rapper that’s unheard of. Also MGK has the shovel in his video which just makes it great. Just saying Joe needs to keep in mind that shady is fucking nice and he’s honed his craft, in a beef situation where beats don’t really matter, just what you say shady is fucking dangerous to anyone, especially in a freestyle or in the booth laying down heat on wax.

Also in killshot you got me in a scope but u grazed me, 1 call to Interscope and your Swayze, dead or ghost whichever you want, killshot was released on the anniversary of Patrick Swayze death. Also “acting like you’ll put the chrome barrel to my bone marrow, Gunner bitch u ain’t a bow and arrow, say u run up on me like a phone bill playin dead is the only time u hold still/steel b/c if your dead your still but with the same line goes back to Machine Gun Kelly/Gunner saying he never holds steel.

He’s put out some weaker albums but lets not forget, he always comes back and shows u what he can do, like rap god, like believe on revival, lucky you remix, ringer, greatest, not alike, fall, killshot all fire all crazy lyrical like killshot, “ the games mine again and nothings changed but the locks/lox, so before I slay this bitch, muah give jade/jadakiss. That can mean the games like a castle and the shits always been mine nothings changed but the locks in this castle and I still have the fucking key, it call also mean nothings change but his hair/locks from blonde to brunette, so before I slay this bitch/mgk/the game muah give jade/hailey jade his daughter a kiss /jadakiss from the lox. Also Hailie is a big reason for this beef starting so he gonna give her a kiss before he slays the bitch that called a 16 year old girl “hot as fuck”. Those are crazy bars that very few people in all of rap can put together

Imagine how hard it is for him just to make sure he hasn’t said something before, but he keeps going, with the dictionary in his pocket coming up with new flows, copying others flows to make fun of them, riding like 5 different flows in 1 song, with sick lyrics, double entendras he has to entertain himself first u think he’s gonna keep making hits rapping the same way, he’ll get bored and it will show in his work

And common Joe, Remy Ma got at your ass and u ain’t say shit, also I’m so sick of people saying Em has nothing to say, he does slim, he has nothing to say, he does lose yourself, Stan, not afraid, white america, believe, mockingbird, the trump cypher he has nothing to say, he’s done it all from slim to sentimental Marshall to political em, over the course of 18 yrs, 10 platinum albums 2 diamond in the us more diamond worldwide, joe can recycle his shit and like 10 people would know, eminem has put out hundreds of songs has had probably like a hundred top 5 records of his own and w/ other artist and they are all different

Eminem HASN'T said shit for a decade at least.. Totally agree with that and him just rhyming a bunch of words, the shit just doesn't grab me.. It's shit to say but hey, a sober & happy Em is a boring em.. Tired of his gruff put on voice & MGK is right, that beard looks funny. I loved em in his early days, especially the dissing benzino & Ja era, that shit was hilarious.. I'd love to see him come back like that but he's far from untouchable these days. Love "Nail in the Coffin" but I can't help but feel the role reversal with MGK.. "Nobody wants to hear their grandfather rap".

Budden lyrically was a beast too IMO, but he doesn't have enough for Em. I always respect Joe, as he tells you the truth, or how he feels, no sugar coating, the only thing is when Em gave you a shot at the end of your career, and you diss his music, shows no loyalty. Dont bite the hand that feeds you

Joe Budden has lost his mind. He's basically admitting defeat. He's Eminems ex employee. The last decade what has he done? If it wasnt for the podcast it would be "Joe Who?" He literally wishes he had Eminem's rap career, money and fame.
