On Saturday, Drake and French Montana released their highly anticipated track “No Shopping,” which generated a lot of buzz after a snippet of the song was leaked back in May. The preview included a reference to “Pump It Up,” the name of Budden’s biggest hit song. It was also released shortly after Budden criticized Drake's VIEWS on his podcast show, leading him to believe that Drake was taking shots at him.
So, like everyone, Budden waited for the track to drop. But after he grew impatient, he decided to release his own diss tracks targeted at Drake, and even went as far as to taunt him on Twitter; however, that still wasn’t enough to get a reaction. Did Drizzy just not care? Well, apparently, he was just waiting ... at least that's what many people think.
“No Shopping” is likely a response to Budden’s podcast criticism (it was created before “Making a Murderer (Part 1)” or “Waves” were released), as Drake can be heard rapping, "I'm not a one hit wonder, they know all my stuff/You let me turn into the nigga that you almost was." Though he doesn’t drop any names, listeners were more than convinced this was targeted at Budden and went off on Twitter.
Check out some of the choice Twitter reactions below. Of course, Joe Budden was quick to react.
