Lil Yachty And Joe Budden Go At It Again Over Record Sales And Stardom

By Daryl Nelson

Lil Yachty and Joe Budden are going at it again after Budden said the Atlanta rapper isn't a real star.

It happened when Joey Bada$$ stopped by the show Everyday Struggle and argued Yachty's commercials with Target and Sprite prove he's a star. Then Budden brought up Boat's low sales numbers of his debut album Teenage Emotions.

"You're not a mega star when you sell 40,000 records," said Budden.
Yachty heard what Budden claimed and shot back on Instagram, clowning the New Jersey rapper's own sales.

From there, Quality Control Music CEO Pierre "Pee" Thomas stepped into the argument and stuck up for the 19-year-old artist.

This is the latest chapter in the saga between Yachty and the Slaughterhouse rapper. In April they had a back-and-forth when Budden said Boat was ruining Hip Hop, which eventually made Boat's dad chime in.

Yachty also stopped by Everyday Struggle, where he and Budden argued face to face.

In this latest argument, who do you agree with? Does Yachty being in Target and Sprite commercials make him a star or does he need to sell records to be one?
