Joe Budden Evaluates Drake’s Legacy In The Wake Of The Demo Leaks and Kendrick Lamar’s “loss.”

Joe Budden has discussed his opinions on Drake’s career in the wake of his alleged loss to Kendrick Lamar in their intensely debated rivalry.

Speaking on his own podcast, Budden maintained that even though his longstanding competitor had outstreamed and outsmarted the 6 Gods, their legacy still stands.

“I don’t care what Drake does; for me, Drake’s legacy is already kinda cemented,” he said. “A lot more has to happen for him to look as bad as some of y’all want us to view him as. I don’t think he looks the greatest right now, but I don’t care.”

He added: “I don’t care that I don’t think he can rap like he wants to rap. I don’t care that the slaps don’t sound the same. I got ViewsIf You’re Reading This It’s Too LateNothing Was the SameTake CareSo Far Gone.

“I got the music that I need from him. It is phenomenal, no matter who wrote it. It sounds timeless, no matter who wrote it. And it continues to work.”

Budden’s remarks also coincide with an increase in the criticism of Drake’s songwriting with the release of other Drake reference tracks online, including a recording of “Mob Ties” by Vory.

In other Joe Budden news, he recently made headlines by criticizing Apple Music’s ranking of the 100 best albums of all time.

The former Slaughterhouse MC discussed the list on his aforementioned podcast and took issue with the placement of several classic R&B albums.

“Just talking about solely R&B, what they did with [Sade‘s] Love Deluxe, [Usher‘s] Confessions, [SZA‘s] Ctrl, Prince and [Michael Jackson] is egregious,” he said. “This list is disrespectful to a lot of R&B actually. There’s a lot of phenomenal R&B albums [that are missing]. [Marvin Gaye‘s What’s Going On not being in the Top 10] tells you that they disrespected the rest of R&B.”

His sentiment echoed that of Jermaine Dupri, who also recently claimed that the list was “sad” and “disrespectful” to R&B.

One thing Budden did note was done correctly, however, was the ranking of Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid, m.A.A.d city in the Top 10, though his former podcast co-host Mal would disagree.
