(AllHipHop Rumors) Joe Budden and Lil Yachty have been at odds for much of 2017 with the confusion beginning in May.
The May conflict started after Yachty was a guest on Joe’s then Hip Hop debate home Everyday Struggle with DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis.
Lil Yachty felt slighted after being questioned about his business acumen by Joe Budden.
The rift fizzled before re-igniting after the 2017 BET Awards where Budden and the 'Everyday Struggle' crew interviewed Yachty’s fellow Quality Control label mates the Migos.
The interview saw Budden drop the microphone before exiting the Everyday Struggle BET Awards set. Only to be countered with a rising Migos trio with Quavo asking “What you trying to do?”
Confusion ensued after with not much happening further, but the rivalry was recently jump started once again after the Migos released their video for “Ice Tray,” a record they used to call out Budden from their 'Quality Control: Control The Streets Volume 1' compilation.
On Sunday, Lil Yachty was on Twitter speaking with his followers about wanting to play dodgeball against any fellow rapper and his crew. To which Joe Budden responded, “U trash in Dodgeball.” Yachty followed with “OMG PLEASE LETS PLAY” before Budden responded again with :I’m in, tell K grab us a partner to livestream it. There’s a check here somewhere.”
Lil Yachty then responded with “Y’all already know who finna be on my team..” and posted a gif of the Three Amigos to which Budden responded “Good, i owe them” before later subtweeting the ether with “Shirts vs blouses… *slaps knee*.” Even Diddy later chimed in on the Twitter conversation indicating his network Revolt TV might be interested in airing the dodgeball match.
Who do you think would win a dodgeball battle between Joe Budden’s crew and Lil Yachty/Migos?
