Once upon a time, Joe Budden had a little feud with the entire Wu Tang Clan over his seeding on a Vibe emcee tournament bracket. The feud culminated at the 2009 Rock The Bells festival where a member of Raekwon’s entourage punched Budden in the face. Meanwhile, Mickey Factz happened to be in the dressing room but skipped out before it got real. Fast forward to 2016 and Budden being in the midst of a never ending barrage of Drake disses. Factz has voiced his opinion on social media and Budden didn’t take too kindly to it. So now, Factz fires his own diss at Budden titled “Eye Witness” produced by Nottz. Will Budden respond?
