Joe Budden responded to Drake dissing him on his new project, Scary Hours 3, by refusing to comment on the songs. When asked about his thoughts on the release during the latest episode of his podcast, Budden remarked that he had nothing to say.

"Not a peep," he admitted, as caught by Complex. "Not one word about it, not one word. Here to listen to y'all. I have absolutely nothing to say... I'm gonna keep my thoughts to myself." Despite pressure from his co-hosts, he refused to budge. As for Drake's bar referencing Budden, he raps on "Stories About My Brother": “And n***as bound to slip eventually, like they sent permission/Imagine us getting our validation from a ex-musician searching for recognition/Same story every time, they heckling, repetition/I’m top of the mountain, these n***as still down at base camp, they planning they expedition.”

Drake and Budden have been feuding since the release of For All The Dogs. At the time, the podcast host accused Drake of "rapping for the children." In response, Drake called out Budden on several occasions on social media. At one point, he wrote to Budden: "You left it behind to do what you are doing in this clip cause this is what actually pays your bills. For any artist watching this just remember you are watching a failure give their opinion on his idea of a recipe for success…a quitter give their opinion on how to achieve longevity."
