Joey Bada$$ has been known to be pretty vocal on Twitter, so when Joe Budden threw a jab at him in his new "Control" freestyle, a response was expected. Joey didn't let us down, but showed a little more restraint than he usually does on the platform (he often finds himself deleting the evidence after an impassioned rant).

The line in question found Budden denouncing the fellow New York emcee.

"Some of these OG's I laugh at, y'all don't know me to half ass/To me it's just one Joey that's bad ass."

Joey responded shortly after in one tweet. Read it below.

Do New York emcees need to stick together, or should this newly ignited competitiveness exist within regions as well?
