"I don't even know where to begin" - Lupe Fiasco.
"Don't poke the bear" is an axiom of survival around the world, and Joe Budden risked rap death over the weekend when he implied that he was a better rapper and Street Fighter player than Lupe Fiasco. "Lupe been scared of Mouse," he wrote on Twitter, "Street Fighter & rapping."
An avid Street Fighter fan and rapper of the highest order, Lupe responded within a manner of minutes. "Lawd! I don't even know where to begin..." he wrote. Fortunately for Budden, he was in a good mood, and hit Budden with a salvo of GIFs.
When a fan chimed in that Lupe would out-rap Budden, Budden responded, "I love Lupe, but he’d have to prove that."
Budden eventually conceded defeat. Check out their full Twitter exchange below.
