Unless you’re Donald Trump or an Olympic athlete, it’s a pretty slow news time. Summer slumbers and people chill. But media — and rap beefs apparently — abhor a vacuum. Enter two of the biggest names in hip-hop to fill it: Drake, the Canadian king who’s no stranger to feuding (ask Joe Budden or Meek Mill), and Eminem, whose acid tongue has ripped everyone including his own mother. Only Eminem didn’t really enter the fray at all.
Hot 97’s Ebro Darden just took the one degree of separation between Budden and Eminem (Budden’s on Eminem’s label) to float a rumor that Em was going to drag Drake in an upcoming drop. Darden later said he was just spitballing, but the spit was already in the wind. (The wind is called the internet.) The Budden-Drake beef is real — Budden is an equal opportunity insult machine. But the Em-Drizzy deal is as much real beef as tofu — it isn’t. USA Today asks is it the most boring rap beef ever? Well how do you compare with Trump, really, for beefs?
