Over a piano-driven loop, the Brooklyn rhymer calls Budden a drug addict, a woman beater and a d— eater. Troy Ave also claims that him and Budden were cool but when he was going through his situation with the Irving Plaza shooting, the New Jersey rapper was nowhere to be found.
Troy Ave also accuses Budden of not visiting him in the hospital when he was recovering from his injuries in the shooting. “It’s sad ’cause I really had love for him / I was down to die and take slugs for him / But when your boy needed help, damn, there was none for him,” he raps.
At the end of the song, an old soundbite from a Tupac Shakur interview is heard where he talks about being betrayed by his closest friends. “Fear is stronger than love. Remember that. Fear is stronger than love,” said ‘Pac. “But I’m a soldier, I will always survive.”
Budden has yet to respond to Troy Ave’s diss song. As you may know, the Slaughterhouse artist is not afraid to engage in a rap battle against anyone who throws shots (i.e., Drake).
“Press Spray” appears on Troy Ave’s new mixtape Dope Boy Troy (Vol. 2): NuPac, which is available for streaming and downloading at his official YouTube Channel.
