Joe Budden Trends As Social Media Users Thank Him For Seemingly Inspiring Drake’s New Music: ‘Bro Going Back To Actually Focusing On Rap’
Rap star Drake’s new EP is getting quite the acclaim for social media users.
Many took to X (formerly Twitter) to share their approving thoughts on the rapper’s “Scary Hours 3”, crediting Joe Budden for seemingly pushing the musician following criticism of his last album.
As we previously reported, Joe Budden, 43, and Aubrey ‘Drake‘ Graham, 37, got into a heated exchange after the podcaster shared his disappointment in the Canadian’s eighth studio album “For All the Dogs”. Budden slammed to project as being “music for children”, and urged him to consider making records for people his age. Drake responded, accusing his former colleague of being jealous of him, arguing that his opinion didn’t matter and that he “failed” at music.

With the release of his latest project, however, it seems many have been led to believe that Budden’s words held more weight with the entertainer than he let on. Celebrating Drake’s new project for its relatable themes and lyricism, social media users praised the commentator for being truthful about what Drake’s previous record lacked. To them, his criticism inspired the Grammy winner to go harder with his newer project.
One user wrote:
“Everyone say thank u to joe budden coz drake is rapping rapping”
While another added:
“Joe Budden put that battery in Drake’s back had bro going back to actually focusing on rap”

It doesn’t appear that Drake has made any comments about the internet’s opinion on Budden at this time. Additionally, it doesn’t seem Budden has directly addressed being a trending topic. However, he did post an interesting picture to his his instagram story but opted not to add a caption or explanation.
