Joe Budden has been teasing a Drake diss track for a minute now, and on Thursday we got maybe the longest single-song Drake diss that the world will ever see.
Produced by the mighty araabMUZIK, “Making a Murderer Pt. 1” goes after Drizzy for a mind-crushing six-and-a-half minutes, tossing in jabs at Meek Mill and (maybe) Jay Z for good measure. Over four verses, two interludes and a hook, the Slaughterhouse MC essentially creates an anti-Toronto song suite that apparently springs from a beef that started when Budden dissed Drake’s Views album on his podcast.
“You’re so indirect, shit wasn’t real clear / Either Jimmy actin’ or he really miss a wheelchair,” goes one example of a straining couplet. Budden also brings up ghostwriter Quentin Miller, Drake’s singing ability, and his label deal (“Since you signed to five guys, makes you a burger”).
