Drake - Diplomatic Immunity (Scary Hours)


"I feel attacked".

Joe Budden appears to have responded to shots made by Drake in his new song, 'Diplomatic Immunity'.

The Canadian rapper dropped a brand new two-track EP titled 'Scary Hours' this weekend, consisting of the formerly-mentioned track and the previously leaked 'God's Plan'.

In 'Diplomatic Immunity', Drizzy appears reignite his ongoing feud with Budden after referring to 'Everyday Struggle', the Complex podcast Budden used to appear on.

The lyrics in question read as follows:

"Sh*t is complex like short n*ggas 'round tall ladies,
I gotta watch who I’m talkin' to like it’s all-ages,
I’ve seen buddin' careers turn to sit around and talk about other careers, judgin' their peers,
Knowledge from n*ggas who did not contribute to none of this here."

The premise of 'Everyday Stuggle' involves presenters, including Budden and DJ Akademics, discussing other rapper's careers and current topics circulating in Hip-Hop culture.

Shortly after the song premiered, Budden took to Twitter in what any perceive to be a reaction to Drake's shots, writing: "I feel attacked."

It wasn't long before Twitter users responded to the reignited feud themselves - while many argued that the response was too late from Drake, others praised the OVO star's new material.

Meanwhile, Drake also directly addressed his short-lived dalliance with Jennifer Lopez as well as his former relationship with Rihanna during the same song.

"2017 I lost a J. Lo / A Rotterdam trip had me on front page, though," the 31-year-old raps in reference to the 'Get Right' songstress and her current beau Alex Rodriguez.

Earlier in the song, the 'More Life' hitmaker references Rihanna's real name, Robyn Fenty, on the line: "Caterin’ is from Giorgio Baldi, Robyn’s favourite."

The 'Wild Thoughts' starlet is rumoured to be engaged to her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jamal. The pair enjoyed a romantic vacation in Paris last week.
