As previously reported, the trio’s recently teased new single is slated to be featured on their forthcoming effort Control The Streets Vol. 1. While not much else is known about the project or even the song’s title, fans were able to hear a couple of the scathing lyrics — namely Quavo’s signature ad-libs, during which he raps, “If a n***a hating, call him Joe Budden (p***y!).”
The Atlanta trio and Complex host bumped heads earlier this year on the red carpet of the 2017 BET Awards. Although it was initially unclear what sparked the rift, it was later revealed during an episode of Everyday Struggle that Migos took issue with Joe’s infamous interview with Lil Yachty in which he berates the rapper for being excessively happy.
Take a listen to a teaser of the diss track below.
After catching wind of the alleged diss track, Joe took to Twitter to address the song in question. “Soon as it’s all peace [Quavo] decides to unleash this lyrical venom in my direction…that’s crazy,” he wrote. He also continued his social media antics by directly writing to Quavo, “i am your OG & you will respect me as such.”
Now it appears as though Joe has even more to say regarding the matter. Early Thursday morning (Dec. 7), the Slaughterhouse frontman clarified his stance on his beef with Migos by sharing clips of today’s episode of Everyday Struggle. “I have no problem with Quavius,” Joe says jokingly. “Now, plot twist: I think Quavius is hating on me which makes him a Joe Budden.”
The Rage & The Machine lyricist continued to let the jokes fly after sharing another clip on Instagram, which he captioned, “Unfortunately the Migos vs Budden rap battle will not be taking place… but I’m down to have a dance off!!!!”
