Joe Budden certainly has been in the headlines a lot lately thanks to his feud with Drake, then 6 God’s fans showing up at his house, getting chased down by Budden and the social media circus of memes that followed. Budden is capitalizing off that spotlight with his latest track “Flex,” which is produced by AraabMUZIK.
The collab with Tory Lanez seems like another jab at Drake considering that Lanez recently posted a video on twitter in Philadelphia calling out an unnamed rapper saying he’s good in the city of Brotherly Love unlike some other rappers, which most suspect is aimed at Drake. Philly is obviously the home of Meek Mill, who infamously has been battling Drizzy, as well.

The video features ladies in a hot steam room scene during Budden’s verse, before Fabolous joins the party in a pool grotto type scene. Lanez delivers a rendition of Bobby Brown‘s “Roni” for the hook and Fab employs a more relaxed auto-tune assisted style.
The song comes from Budden and Araab’s forthcoming collaborative album Rage & the Machine.
