Last night, Drake [subliminally] hit at Joe Budden in his verse on the French Montana track 'No Shopping.'
Budden [not so subliminally] struck back a couple of hours later with 'Afraid.'
Both tracks were probably recorded weeks ago. But it still invigorated a beef that had gone stale because of Drake's lack of participation.
See how the Internet streets have reacted to this flare up in hostilities.
