Drake Mocks Joe Budden After a Crowd Bumps His ’Pump It Up’ Track

Drake came at Joe Budden on July 20th after posting a video on his Instagram of a crown dancing to his music. In the clip, you can see fans jamming to the retired rapper’s song, ”Pump It Up.”

Recording the video while making funny remarks, Drizzy was in St. Tropez at an outdoor restaurant.

You can hear him saying, ”Where else, where else, Joey, would you have them going so crazy? They’re going so nuts. Ay.”

Although Budden has yet to respond to the video, he is probably going to turn this situation into content for the next episode of his podcast, The Joe Budden Podcast. Nearly twenty years later, the New Jersey native’s song is still being played among DJ’s mixes.

‘Pump It Up’ Release:

After releasing ‘Pump It Up,’ Joe Budden received mass recognition, as the single ranked at No. 38 on the Billboard 100 and was even nominated for Best Male Rap Solo Performance at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards. The song was also used in the famous movie 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The two celebrities actually have a history of rivalry together. Starting back in 2016 after Joe Budden talked down on Drakes ‘Views‘ project. They both went back in forth with diss tracks for some time. But eventually squashed their “beef” in 2020 during an Instagram Live.

On the contrary, Drake’s ‘Honestly, Nevermind‘ caught fans by surprise, as it didn’t meet their expectations. However, the Toronto star executed his strategic marketing strategy by tailoring this project toward the European Dance crowd. In a video posted on Twitter, Coffee —who played a huge role in the production — shows himself spinning material from the masterpiece in Ibiza.
