Lupe Fiasco Says He Would Destroy Eminem and Joe Budden in a Rap Battle
Since the release of Eminem's Kamikaze album last week, which saw the artist diss a number of rappers on songs such as "Fall" and "Not Alike," Shady's peers have given their thoughts about the project. Now, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Lupe Fiasco has shared his two cents about Em's latest feud with Joe Budden and says he could beat both rappers in a battle.
Lupe shared a long note on IG after he posted a video on Wednesday (Sept. 4) which appeared to mock Eminem's flow. The Chicago MC cleared up any confusion with the video, saying he likes Shady and only posted the clip because it was funny.
"I posted up that video of the comedian mimicking Eminem rap style because I thought it was funny and actually most rappers actually rap like that when they are writing to catch a flow and get a melody," he wrote. "I like Em & most other rappers & I want no smoke but if I did I would destroy them all. Especially Joe Budden & Em too."
Before the post was deleted, Joe Budden caught wind of the note and commented on Lupe's picture. "Talk yo shit King!!!!!!" the New Jersey rapper's comment read.
Fiasco isn't the only rapper claiming he's better than Eminem. After Shady dissed Budden on his latest album, the MC-turned-podcast-star fired back at Em, saying he's been better than the Detroit rhymer for the last decade.
"I've been better than you this entire fucking decade! In my rapper brain, I'm a content nigga. You gotta say something! You have not said anything for the better part of a whole fucking decade," he said on the Joe Budden Podcast.
