Eminem took some shots at Joe Budden in a leaked alternative verse for Em's feature on Conway The Machine's summer of 2019 track "Bang"
"Shout to Puffy Combs, but f*ck Revolt," spit Em on the previously unreleased verse. "Y’all are like a f*cked up remote. Now I get it why our button’s broke. Cause you pressing him but do nothing though, especially when it comes to punches throne."
"Tell this journalist stick to the stuff he knows, like always running, from Migos.”
Budden addressed the verse on his Podcast, and he had a surprisingly mature take on it:
"I was 100% prepared to come in here and scream on [Eminem's manager and Shady Records exec] Paul Rosenberg because I thought Paul leaked this. I was ready to come in here and tell you guys to tell Paul and Em to read the room and how now is not the time for all of that, but this is an old verse, you don't get offended from old verses, one. And two, I don't think anybody's on that right now. I don't think Em is on that. I don't think my Slaughterhouse brothers are on that. I don't think anybody on that side is on that right this second. I don't, to be honest with you. I feel safe speaking for everyone when I say that. I won't tell you why I feel safe but I do. That's not really where the focus is right now. That's not where our concern is and that's not where it should be. It’s way too much important sh*t going on. I sound like super-mature and political right now, but facts is facts… I’m not rapping, so that’s not fun. Nothing about this is fun. It’s more power in the unity. And I'm going to assume that we were taking some baby steps to try to reach unity with some of the behind-the-scenes conversations that have taken place. So no, this is not 35-year-old Joe who is going to come and just f*ck everything up because I'm mad about some old sh*t. I’m not going to do that. We’re going to be mature. I'm 40. Great verse."
While Joe wasn't' bothered, Diddy's media outfit Revolt, which got caught in the crossfire, was:
