The last few weeks have been nothing but debates about the Big 3 in hip-hop and whether Drake and J. Cole would respond to Kendrick Lamar’s diss from the song “Like That.”

Cole was the first one to respond with his song “7 Minute Drill,” but days later he apologized for making the diss track, leaving the battle to be between Drake and Lamar.

Joe Budden, who is respected in the hip-hop world, mentioned in his latest podcast that both rappers have something in their pocket and are ready to release their songs.

“I’m going to tell you this. Get out the way,” Budden said. “Whatever little rappy s— you thought was going on, it’s not that — and something is coming. I think J. Cole knows that from either Kendrick or Drake or both, and it was time to bow out because we are no longer in the first round. Kendrick has earned him a bye with Cole’s apology.”

Budden then said he got information from a source that both Drake and Lamar prepared songs for each other.

“Both sides went in the booth and came out,” Budden said. “And what I’m hearing about both sides is that it’s nuclear. I’m hearing this from people that can rap. I want to come in here and say that speculation time is over — debate time is over. I’ve been saying for a few pods now that I’ve seen absolutely nothing from Drake that can get me excited enough to think that he will be capable of doing what needs to be done against the likes of a Kendrick Lamar. I’m here to say that there is no longer any need for me to instigate anything. We’re here. And apparently, [Drake] did it, and people heard it. I heard it’s bad.”

Many have been wondering if the Toronto rapper will respond after Lamar took several jabs at him on “Like That,” rapping “F— sneak dissin’, first-person shooter, I hope they came with three switches,” referring to Drake’s song “First Person Shooter” which features Cole.

“Motherf— the big 3, n—- it’s just me,” Lamar says later on in the track.
