During his daily “Everyday Struggle” Complex segment, Budden explained why he would not retaliate against Ave.
“Let me tell you something. My career would be over if I responded to him. Well, it is over. Number two, my girlfriend would never let me waste a bar on the likes of a Troy Ave.” (Complex)
On the new diss record, Troy takes direct aim at Budden’s personal life and career.
He starts things off by simply dissing Budden’s music, rapping, “Man this shit wack like a Budden track.” From there, he gets much, much more personal. “You a drug addict and a b*tch-beater/Rap podcaster and a d*ck-eater,” Troy raps in a quick-fire first verse. Throughout the rest of the song, Troy criticizes Budden for allegedly abandoning him once he was shot. (XXL Mag)
After a few setbacks, Ave released his new street album late Monday (April 17) night to critical acclaim.
Last weekend, Troy came forward to address the street album’s delay.
