A bit of a backstory.
Back in 2009, Joe Budden was put on a VIBE tournament-style list of top emcees, getting a lower seed some of hip hop’s most popular emcees. Taking offense to his position, Budden particularly called out Method Man who was ranked higher than him. The entire Wu-Tang Clan took offense to it, especially Raekwon, who would confront Joe backstage during Los Angeles’ Rock The Bells concert (where, coincidentally, both Rae’s Wu-Tang Clan and Joe’s Slaughterhouse groups headlined) in his own dressing room. Joe would then be on the wrong end of an eye jammie from a member of Raekwon’s entourage.
During the fracas, Mickey Factz was in the room with Joe when it all went down, ducking out before everything hit the fan.
Fast-forward to 2016. Joe, who’s currently having a word (or several) with Drake, is now engaged in a back-and-forth with Factz on Twitter.
Mickey talks too much from the sideline…. Ironically enough, he was quiet on the sideline when I needed him to talk… Do u, i’ll do me.

Now Mickey has dropped a diss song, “Eye Witness.” Over some Nottz production, Factz mentions the lack of Drake responses, the Wu-brawl, various personal issues, and everything in between for almost three minutes. Will Joe respond? Only time will tell.
