The Drake and Joe Budden beef seems to be nothing, but one of the parties involved has to keep things a little spicy by the day and the New Jersey rapper revealed that Drake hopped in his DMs on Instagram to make a bet. While making an appearance on the ESPN Radio show “Be Honest” with Cari Champion, Budden claimed that Drake bet him that he wouldn’t be able to release 25 diss songs by the time his “Summer Sixteen Tour” hits Madison Square Garden.
Budden made it clear the messages were hard to decipher, “He sent me a very passive aggressive Insta-DM,” Budden said.
“I didn’t even know how to take it. And then he continued to send them. And then I said, ‘Whoa, okay.’ And that’s why I said I couldn’t tell you that we’re cool today. Because it sounded like a man who was very hurt and just didn’t want to talk to Joe or hear from Joe or just that relationship was over. I haven’t spoken to him, so I can’t even begin to even pretend to know where his brain is.”
When asked exactly what Drake said in the messages, Budden wouldn’t fully disclose the information, but he did say,
“I won’t tell you what they said verbatim in case I have to put it out. I’m only not putting it out cause I’m a real n***a. You just don’t move like that. He started off with, ‘I would like to formally invite you to one of my four Madison Square Garden shows. You and however many people you’d like to bring. And after that, it said, ‘I bet you can’t release 25 diss records between now and then. So then it was the laughing emoji. And then he followed that with, ‘If you can, I will give you $10,000.’ And then LOL and a bunch of exclamation points. I didn’t know how to take that.”
