How many of these does Budden have stashed on his hard drive?
First it was “Making a Murderer (Part 1),” which was followed by “Wake,” then “Afraid,” and now we have “Just Because.” What’s funny about all of this is that, aside from a few “Pump It Up” references, Drake hasn’t said anything. I mean, I can’t say I blame him. I thought the situation was weird from the jump, and although I appreciate Budden’s bars, it makes him look like he’s shouting into the void. The fact is Budden’s fans are Budden’s fans, Drake’s are Drake’s, and while I’m sure there’s overlap, Budden fans will say Drake looks weak, Drake fans will say Joe looks corny. This is so weird, but as always, we’ll have to wait and see where this goes.
