Birdman, the CEO of Cash Money Records, has recently weighed in on the ongoing feud between Drake and Joe Budden. In newly surfaced audio clips circulating on the internet, Birdman can be heard passionately defending Drake and warning those who dare to challenge him.
In the audio, Birdman emphatically states, “Mane Champagne Papi is the real deal. Any n*gga playing with Champagne Papi can suck my d***. Y’all some p*ssy a** n*ggas, stop playing with Champagne Papi.”
These strong words reflect Birdman’s unwavering support for Drake and his determination to protect him from any criticism or disrespect. When asked about Joe Budden’s criticism of Drake’s latest album, ‘For All The Dogs,’ Birdman expressed that he holds no ill feelings towards Budden.
However, he made it clear that Budden cannot “play with the GOAT” (Greatest of All Time). Birdman stated, “I personally always respected Joe Budden, but he can’t play with the goat. If you’re playing with the goat, then you want a problem. And if you want a problem, then we’ll give you a problem.
On God, we’ll give you one.” This feud stems from Joe Budden publicly expressing his disappointment with Drake’s new album and expressing nostalgia for the times when Drake rapped “for the rappers.”
Budden also criticized Drake for associating with individuals outside his age group, such as streamer Kai Cenat. Drake, in response, didn’t hold back and called out Budden for his perceived failures in music. He accused Budden of switching careers due to financial struggles and claimed that his concerts only attracted a small audience.
The ongoing feud between Drake and Joe Budden has captured the attention of fans and the media alike. With Birdman now adding his voice to the mix, tensions are escalating, and it remains to be seen how this feud will further unfold. As Drake and Budden trade barbs, the hip-hop community eagerly awaits their next moves and wonders if a resolution or a continuation of the animosity lies ahead.
