On the remix to "Chloraseptic", Eminem drops a new verse in which he addresses those hating on his recent output.
"Not as raw as I was, 'Walk on Water' sucks/Bitch, suck my dick/Y'all saw the tracklist and had a fit 'fore you heard it/So you formed your verdict/While you sat with your arms crossed/Did your little reaction videos and talked over songs (chill!)/Nah, dog, y'all sayin' I lost it, your fuckin' marbles are gone," Em spits on the track.
A lot of folks -- including Shady pals Bizarre and 50 Cent -- said Eminem was coming for Joe Budden, who had been critical of Em lately, in those bars.
But Budden refuses to believe that Eminem was dissing him. He addressed the situation on his podcast today.
"Why do people think he's talking about me? Because I heard it finally," he said of the "Chloraseptic Remix." "I couldn't have trashed the album that I never heard. And I was the lone person defending the tracklist. So much so, that niggas said, 'Uh, Joe, you dickridin' man. You bias. You won't say nothing," he said.
Budden went on to praise Em for his verse on the remix.
"I don't think Em was talking about me, number one. But boy, did he kill that verse."
He also wondered why Bizarre got involved at all and said he believes 50 piped up just because he wanted to get more attention for the movie, Den of Thieves, which he's been promoting.
He starts talking Shady at about two minutes.
Do you think Joe's right that Eminem wasn't coming for him?
