In a twist of events, Drake has yet to respond to Joe Budden's back-to-back dis tracks, but he has, however, issued a challenge.

As Budden's dis tracks grow by the day, along with the amount of "Running Budden" memes onlie, the Slaughterhouse rapper revealed that this Drake baiting may soon impact his bank account — if he accepts.

In an interview with ESPN Radio, Budden said Drake reached out to him through a DM on IG and challenged him to release 25 dis tracks before the Summer Sixteen Tour hits Madison Square Garden next week. Plus, to top it off, if successful, Drake apparently promised to give him $10,000.

"For me, there was absolutely zero to say at all. And then he sent me a very passive aggressive Insta-DM. I didn’t even know how to take it," Budden said. "He started off with, 'I would like to formally invite you to one of my four Madison Square Garden shows August 4. You and however many people you’d like to bring.' And after that it said, 'I bet you can’t release 25 diss records between now and then.' So then it was the laughing emoji. And then he followed that with, 'If you can, I will give you $10,000.' And then LOL and a bunch of exclamation points. I didn’t know how to take that."

How does one accept that challenge without feeling like the pawn in the chess match?

Listen to the full interview above. And take a look back at Budden's history of beefs and battles.
