Budden went all out today. As promised, he dropped his Drake diss, and he gave it the fitting title of "Making a Murderer." Whether or not it ends up prompting a direct response from Drizzy, it's clear that Budden carefully studied each and every bar on his first diss track in years. Whatever happens next should be interesting. But that wasn't all from the Jersey City veteran, intent to show that he's able to keep his name hot without sparring with the game's biggest star.
"Making a Murderer" was produced by an essential member of Budden's new team, Harlem's araabMUZIK, with whom he's planning a joint album called Rage & the Machine. "Making a Murderer" is expected to be a one-off release, but Budden has decided to pair his new Drake diss with the release of the first track off Rage & the Machine. And it's a big one. "Flex" features Fabolous and Tory Lanez, the latter whom also is currently involved in an ongoing feud with Drake. No outright diss tracks have emerged as a result of the inner-Toronto beef, and Budden maintains that he didn't collaborate with Tory on "Flex" due to their mutual aversion of Drake. Indeed, there's no beef here; instead, "Flex" is a cool, breezy sex jam with healthy doses of game spitting from Joe and Fab as well as a carefree R&B hook from Tory.
Shawty made me feel like the summer time
Feelin' like the summers mine
Yeah, she don't know the nights that a nigga went
To hang for a hundred crimes, a hundred crimes
- Tory Lanez
