Joe Budden Claims Drake & Kendrick Lamar Both Have Diss Tracks Ready: ‘It’s Nuclear’

With J. Cole bowing out, it’s left Kendrick Lamar and Drake in the ring, and the pair of hip-hop titans could be clashing soon. Joe Budden claimed on the Wednesday (April 10) episode of his eponymous podcast that Drizzy and K. Dot emerged from the studio with “nuclear” records that they’re gearing up to fire at one another.

“Whatever little rappy s–t you thought was going on, it’s not that and something’s coming,” he began. “I think that J. Cole knows that from either Drake, Kendrick or both. And it was time to bow out because we are no longer in the first round.”

Budden said that sources relayed to him it’s wartime, with Drake and Lamar allegedly ready to face off.

“I have it on good information that both sides went in the booth and came out. And what I’m hearing about both sides is that it’s nuclear. It’s up, up. I’m hearing this from people that can rap,” he said. “So I wanna come in here and say that speculation time is over. Debate time is over.

“I been saying for a few pods that I’ve seen absolutely nothing from Drake to get me excited enough to think that he will be capable of doing what needs to be done against the likes of a Kendrick Lamar,” he added. “I’m here to say there is no longer any need for me to instigate anything. We’re here and apparently he did it and people heard it. I heard it’s bad.”

Billboard has reached out to Drake and Kendrick Lamar’s reps for comment.

Lamar relit the fuse in March with his scathing response targeting Drake and J. Cole on Metro Boomin and Future’s “Like That,” which is currently spending a second week atop the Billboard Hot 100.

J. Cole had jabbed back at K. Dot’s discography with his “7 Minute Drill,” but apologized and threw up the white flag 48 hours later during his headlining set at Dreamville Fest Sunday (April 7).
