Drake is using his Summer Sixteen Tour as a place to throw down against any and all of his haters. On only the second night of the tour, while performing in Dallas on Thursday (July 21), Drake told the crowd he should’ve invited Joe Budden to play “Pump It Up” for them.
“We got the good energy going on. I should’ve brought Joe Budden up here to let him do ‘Pump It Up’ one time,” he said before going into the chorus of Budden’s single. “Pump, pump, pump it up,” Drake mocked. “F— with me.” Budden responded on Twitter in a tweet that has since been deleted. He said “He want attention lol” (via XXL).
While Drake has remained quiet about the line in French Montana’s song “No Shopping” that many have viewed as a response to Budden’s multiple disses, Montana has stated the pair weren’t thinking of the rapper when they wrote that verse. They were just goofing around in the studio having fun.
On the opening night of his Summer Sixteen Tour, he shouted out the rappers remixing “Controlla” and trying to be him. With several more weeks to go on the road, Drake might be setting a lofty goal to create or add to beefs every stop of the way.
