Drake was ready for a fight upon seeing Joe Budden go live on Instagram. Budden took to Instagram to show his followers the happening at his annual private pool party. But Drake took the video as an opportunity to troll both Budden and Pusha T, who are known to have longstanding beefs with the “God’s Plan” rapper.
The trolling started when Joe Budden was at his New Jersey pool party. Budden had previously advertised the party as “wholesome fun” on his social media. Budden announced the DJs in attendance and even included a list of “party rules” which included, “don’t take off your wig,” “don’t spy on people’s significant others,” “don’t bring your dog,” “no cucumbers,” and lastly, “no throwing people in the pool, that’s not flirting.”
As Budden went live, Drake began the trolling by requesting Rory. “We want Rory! We want Rory!” Drake wrote. After seeing the comment, Budden began to explain Rory and Drake’s love-hate relationship. Drake then threw some major shade by requesting the DJ to play Budden’s diss track. “I wanna see if they ring off,” he wrote. “That’s not nice,” Budden responded.

Drake continued with his joke, “Pump it up will send that Airbnb into a frenzy on God.”
Drake then asked for Budden’s DJ to play another diss track. Specifically, “The Story of Adidon” by Pusha T, which takes several cracks at Drake. “I promise the only person that’s gonna know the words is Rob Markman,” he said, referring to Genius’ Head of Artist Relations.
Rob Markman did in fact respond to Drake’s comment by tweeting the lyrics of “The Story of Adidon.” “Of course the Genius knows the lyrics,” he said.

Drake hit peak contrarian when he commented on the pool party in general, saying it looks like it was sponsored by Four Loko.
The rapper also made some cracks at the number of people there and the hip-hop group Travis Porter. But, according to Complex, Budden decided to address Drake once and for all before he cut the video off. “Don’t come in here and hurt my feelings,” Budden said. “My dog just died. My birthday is next week. I don’t have time for these shenanigans.”
