In the words of the Jiggaman — is it Oochie Wally or is it One Mic? That’s how folks feel about the recent war of words between rappers Joe Budden and Jay Electronica. While it’s apparent the two MCs are beefing, they do it with words of affirmation and it’s confusing as hell. Ironically, the bickering involves Jay Z, as well.
Just last week, Electronica dropped his highly anticipated (10 years in the making!!) LP A Written Testimony. Most fans were thrilled, while some were underwhelmed. You can count Budden amongst the latter — not just because of the content, but also because Jay Electronica decided the project should be a joint one with Jay Z. During Saturday’s episode of the Joe Budden Podcast, Joe called the decision a “mistake”, while also bashing Elec’s bars.
As you can imagine, that didn’t sit well with the “Exhibit C” rapper. He started by responding to this fan discrediting Budden’s standing in hip hop … and then things snowballed.
