And to little surprise, the two are back at it again. This round of barbs was started on Friday when Budden released an episode of his podcast with guest N.O.R.E. The conversation turned to rappers pursuing media careers when N.O.R.E said, “You know what’s crazy? I’m looking at these rappers trying shows now—you know, rappers from our era—and they are so failing. They doing sports shows, they doing comedy shows. They talkin’ about, ‘Yo, I’m up. I’m just doing this for fun.’ No you are not!” This was taken by Cam'Ron as a knock against his media pursuits.
Cam'Ron Takes Offense, Hits Back, Budden Responds
After seeing the podcast episode, Cam'Ron took to Instagram to respond. "Damn @therealnoreaga told you I couldn’t trust you. Lolol. Im just fucking wit ya. But what other rapper from the 90’s got the sports and cooking show? 🤔U know u my nigga for life. But ya man hoe buddons threw u under the bus on the very Nx episode 🤦🏾♂️said he didn’t know who u was talking bout. I don’t give a fuck how his numbers is N.O. Stay away from that crack head!!!!" read the caption of his post.
Budden was quick to respond, posting to his own Instagram to defend his guest. “Now that n***a know he too sensitive to do this w me,” he wrote. “Chill before I feel like playin’ back & you start makin’ calls again. Focus on your suits and pink set, that ‘crackhead’ lapped you lonnggggggggggg ago.” Budden also raised the beef in the next episode of his show. “N.O.R.E. sat there and sent some shots at, seemingly, Loud Speaker Network and Combat Jack,” Budden said. “He didn’t name names. He said ‘Tax’ but he didn’t name names. Anybody that know Joe know the respect that I have for Combat Jack. You will never hear me utter one bad word about Combat Jack … If I would’ve known that that’s what N.O.R.E. was trying to do, and I still don’t know that ’cause I’m not taking the internet’s word for anything. But if I thought that he was doing that, I would’ve stopped him in his tracks.”
