Joe Budden has been critical of Eminem’s latest album, Revival, so when Em dropped the “Chloraseptic (Remix)” and took on critics, many felt it was aimed at Budden.
D12 member Bizarre later took to Twitter, claiming the song was indeed aimed at Joe. He called Joe a “f*cking clown”, before adding: “Never Bite the hand that feed you. I never like u any way chump… man my n*gga went Crazy.”
50 Cent later followed, coming to Eminem’s defense with threats for Joe.
“That was a bad idea,” 50 wrote, regarding Joe’s criticism of Revival. “Look you got a little ass whopping coming. It’s not a big deal, you will get over it.”
On Budden’s podcast, he and his co-hosts criticized Eminem’s new album. One co-host called it “too pop-ish,” while Joe called Em “a white pop star.”
Joe shared a similar opinion on Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” show. “From what I know, Em, it sounds trash,” he said. “We’re looking at [the tracklist] and the common folk are saying, this looks trash.”
These are comments that Em seemed to address on the “Chloraseptic (Remix).” “Y’all saw the tracklist and had a fit ‘fore you heard it / So you formed your verdict / While you sat with your arms crossed / Did your little reaction videos and talked over songs,” he rapped.
Why did Eminem take Joe’s comments so personal? Because, Joe was previously signed to Eminem’s Shady Records as a member of the group Slaughterhouse.
