Drake Goes Off on Joe Budden for Critiquing His For All the Dogs Album
On Saturday (Oct. 7), Drake hopped on Akademiks’ Instagram page and commented underneath a reshared clip of Joe Budden critiquing his LP, For All the Dogs, on a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. In the clip, which can be seen below, Joe Budden called out the OVO Sound honcho for name-dropping young people like popular Twitch streamer Kai Cenat (on “First Person Shooter”). The veteran podcaster suggested that Drizzy hang out with people his own age.
In the comment section of AK’s post, which can be seen below, the Canadian rapper typed that Joe Budden had failed at music before speaking down on the Slaughterhouse member’s occupation, saying he had to make a career switch to become successful. Drake also advised other artists not to listen to Joe Budden’s advice because he’s “the poster child of frustration and surrendering.”
“@joebudden you have failed at music,” Drake wrote underneath Akademik’s post. “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.”
Drake 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.”
