Joe Budden Approaches Writer After Being Dissed In Article [VIDEO]

By Daryl Nelson

Remember when Joe Budden released all those diss tracks aimed at Drake?

Around that time, Angel Diaz, a writer at Complex, blasted the New Jersey rapper for going at Drizzy and said he was just doing it for attention. On Thursday, Joe -- who is now working for Complex -- found Diaz in the hall and spoke to him about the article.

"My problem with you comes from your lack of objectivity in the Drake, Joe Budden one sided beef that I perpetuated, 'cause he's scared of real niggas," he said. "Then I read a Complex article and you said 'Joe Budden is a failure who is craving attention.'"

So this morning at Complex... @joebudden nearly smacked a writer who he been searching for since we started filming the show... homie had written an article bout joe calling him a hoe ass nigga for going at Drake and said he only did it for attention... then today happened.

"I never did anything for attention, and I am only for the forwarding of this culture," Joe stated. "I don't care about dick riders like you who wanna perpetuate shit and be in Drake's favor."
Do you agree with the Complex writer? Was Joe just getting at Drake for attention and was he really trying to forward the culture like he claimed?

Here's the entire confrontation:
