Former “Everyday Struggle” co-host Joe Budden entered a savage mode rarely seen by the naked eye back in summer 2016. Producer AraabMuzik recently talked about witnesses Budden’s beast come out during the now-infamous Drake feud.
In a recent interview, Araab said Budden didn’t waste any time and poured straight ether into disses like “Making A Murderer.”
“I mean I don’t care — it’s whatever, but it was kind of just benefiting him. I just gave him the tracks,” Araab said when asked about his take on Joe dissing Drake. “It didn’t really shake any cages. The other diss came about because he heard that a lot of people knew about “No Shopping” with French Montana and Drake had that line. … [Joe Budden] was on a thousand, he was not sleeping. I don’t know if he took seventeen Adderall. [Joe Budden] was on something that was not from here. I don’t know what planet it was shipped from, he must’ve ordered that pill in 2000 for it to come now. [Joe Budden] was wilding out and going in. [Joe Budden] must’ve had this planned for centuries.” (Billboard)
In summer 2016, Joe talked about putting an end to his short-lived Drake feud.
“He’s very insecure,” Budden said. “If I’m Drake, I’ve built my entire empire off said insecurity. So why would I want to get rid of it? I wouldn’t. That’s exactly why I stopped dissing him. It was pointless.”
Last year, AraabMuzik talked about helping Joe launch the Drizzy diss tracks.
“All of that just happened right there. I already had the beats made obviously. It’s not like I made them on the spot as they had already been done. It was just about picking the right track to do the damage on. Those tracks fit the theme of what was going on. All the diss tracks were all good money. They all got millions of millions of views and they got him the attention.” (HHDX)
AM also suggested Joe made the right decision by going at the biggest musician at that time.
“We got people looking, we got people wondering, people expecting more and people expecting the album. This is basically everything happening like the right way. Before that, we were just putting things out strategically, but when that whole thing happened, it shifted things. However, it worked for the better as Drake is obviously the biggest artist in the world right now. Why not go that route?” (HHDX)
