Joe Budden weighs in on Drake’s new project “Scary Hours 3.”
Joe Budden and Drake recently indulged in a war of words after the release of “For All The Dogs” album, and now the rapper turned podcaster is hesitant to say something about the Toronto rap star’s new project “Scary Hours 3“.
During the latest episode of his Joe Budden podcast, he was asked about Drizzy’s new “For All The Dogs: Scary Hours Edition” EP. “Not a peep,” he said about hearing the project. “Not a one word about it. Not one word. I’m here to listen to y’all. I have absolutely nothing to say.” “I’m gonna keep my thoughts to myself,” he added.
On the song titled “Stories About My Brother”, Drake also fired some shots at Budden. “Imagine us getting our validation from an ex-musician searching for recognition / Same story every time, they heckle in repetition / I’m top of the mountain, these ni–as still down at base camp, they planning they expedition.”

Previously, Budden stated that Drake is rapping for the kids. “He rappin’ for the children. Yo dog, I had to look up how old this ni–a was when I finished listening to the album,” he said. “You are 36 [years old]. Your birthday is in 20 days. I Googled that, too. You’re going to be 37 years old. Get the f–k away from some of these younger ni–as.” “I want to hear adult Drake rapping for adult people. He’s rapping for the kids, the streams, the accolades. He ain’t trying to rap for me. I can accept that.”
He continued, “I miss the Drake that was rapping for the rappers. I miss the Drake that when he dropped, the rappers hit him. Not these little f–kin’ kids.” “I don’t give a f–k about you and Kai Cenat, [I know] that’s gon’ sound like hate. Go find some ni–as your f–kin’ age. Hang out with them. Get some of that sauce. F–k these kids.”
Following the criticism, Drake fired shots at Budden under DJ Akademiks’ post. “@joebudden you have failed at music,” Drake wrote. “You left it behind to do what you are doing in this clip cause this is what actually pays your bills. For any artist watching this just remember you are watching a failure give their opinion on his idea of a recipe for success…a quitter give their opinion on how to achieve longevity…you switched careers cause the things that pop into your brain had you broke living cheque to cheque and the raps you write had 450 men showing up to your shows in dusty Enyce jeans to screw up their face to Mood Muzik 29 and pretend you are the goat.”
He continued, “pls to any artist that’s doing what they feel is right don’t let these opinions affect your mindset after the fact…this guy is the poster child of frustration and surrendering. You retired and we never hung up your jersey we don’t even remember your number. We know you for doing this…you withdrew from rap not cause you accomplished all you need to it’s cause it wasn’t working for you. I never want anybody in the generations to think that the whole “everybody’s entitled to their opinion” is a real thing…this is a man projecting his own self hate and the fact I did and continue to do everything he wanted to do for himself. If you need it put in simpler terms I own a 767…he owns a modest house in the 973 and flies first class on special occasions.”
“@champagnepapi you’ll grow up sooner or later,” Joe Budden responded in the comments. “Father time is undefeated.”
