Joe Budden doesn't think Drake and Sexyy Red's friendship is genuine.

Joe Budden says he thinks that Drake is getting paid to promote Sexyy Red as the two have posted themselves hanging out on social media numerous times in recent months. Discussing the relationship between the two on his podcast, Budden remarked: "You think he just likes being around Sexyy Red that much? I could name some more people. And this is what I don't understand about you f*cking Drake stans."

When Hollywood Unlocked shared the clip on Instagram, Drake fans came to his defense in the comments section. "Drake like strippers and hood females this ain’t new," one user wrote. Another added: "Sexyy Red just seems like a genuine person maybe he really do love her vibe." Others sided with Budden: "Facts.. and yall fall for it because it works. This man sit here and promotes the most hood and ratchet black women, while chillin with his yt Baby mama, and yt child learning 3 languages and painting picasso."
