It's on. After weeks of shots from Joe Budden directed at Drake, the two are going at it, however indirectly. After the Toronto rapper jabbed Budden on French's new "No Shopping" today (July 16), Joey has dropped a response record mere hours after the shots were fired. You can hear "Afraid" above.

On the track, Joey spits, "Easy to put off notes in thugs harmony, speak to his insecurity, he’s acting irresponsibly / Just further impacted by the fact that you respond to me / See some of us know you as Jimmy barely old, he had the baby belly fro, nigga was frail up in his clothes / Barely got a hold and it’s seeming very outta control, wish we could go back and grab the blackberry with the scroll, oh / Yeah Aubrey that’s the one we trusted
Not this new Aubrey with his stomach sculpted."

Earlier today, French Montana debuted his latest single "No Shopping" with Drake on OVO Sound Radio. Some of Drake's bars seemed to take aim at Budden: "Pump, pump, pump it up, she got a good head on her, but I pump it up / I'm not a one hit wonder, they know all my stuff, you let me turn into the nigga that you almost was / I done seen a lot of shit and I done been in things, and I never started nothin', I just finish things / And I'm still off like the man that brought me in this thing, how you out here celebratin' like the winnin' team?"

Chances are Joey's got bars ready to go. Let's see if Drake really wants to get into it.
