A Complete Timeline Of Drake & Joe Budden's Beef Jul 28, 2016 at 10:13am
We've been entertained for most of Summer Sixteen by a beef between two of rap's most sensitive MCs, Drake and Joe Budden.

Drake Fined $13,000 For Going Overtime At Dallas "Summer Sixteen" Show Jul 22, 2016 at 05:04pm
UPDATE: A video from last night's show proves Drake was well-aware that he was risking some of his own pocket change by performing an extended set. He asks the Dallas crowd how long they're willing to hang on with him, first suggesting an hour and then an hour and a half, only to realize that they want the full "two piece." "I'm tryna go for the two piece, too," he tells the overjoyed audience, "So if it costs me money, Dallas, Texas, it's on me, trust me." Seems like Drizzy is content to pick up the check for his fans.

French Montana Says Drake Wasn't Thinking About Joe Budden On "No Shopping" Jul 19, 2016 at 10:46am
Listeners tuned into OVO Sound Radio this weekend eagerly awaiting the premiere of French Montana's new Drake-featuring single, "No Shopping." Drake was expected to use the collab as a way to fire back at Joe Budden, who had hit him with two consecutive diss tracks. As had been the case with a snippet that French shared in May, Drake began his verse by rapping, "Pump, pump, pump it up" -- presumably a reference to the 2003 hit single that Budden is most known for. "I'm not a one-hit wonder, they know all my stuff," he went on to rap.
