As if Joe Budden hasn't been in enough rap beef as of late, it looks like he sparked a new one. Moreover, during a recent episode of his podcast, he blasted an old verse from rapper and freestyle veteran JR Writer on his 2018 song "Presidential." JR responded to this attack by challenging the podcaster and fellow rapper to a battle, sharing an embarrassing clip of Budden free styling and getting boos from the crowd. "Now JR... You don't even believe what you're typing to me lol," the Slaughterhouse MC responded to Writer's attacks. Furthermore, these were a series of tweets and Instagram Story posts in which the Harlem lyricist continued to go at the media personality for his comments.

"'And y'all booing the hard s**t' [laughing emoji]," JR Writer quoted Joe Budden while sharing the clip of him getting booed at a freestyle, which was the one Joe responded to. "Since you keep speaking on me, let's jump in the ring so I can smoke the s**t out you bozo @JoeBudden. If not shut ya hating a** up! Lol."
