This sounds too delicious to be true, but on Frank Ocean Week, maybe anything can happen. According to Hot 97/Beats 1 DJ Ebro, Eminem might be getting ready to get in on the Drake vs. Joe Budden action, taking, of course, the side of the Slaughterhouse rapper, whose group is signed to Shady Records.

On Hot 97, Ebro relayed a conversation he had with Drake, who's also in the Apple Music family:

"I told Drake that I heard the rumor was that Eminem was gonna gear up to come after him. And he laughed, he was like 'That's not gonna happen.' Was like, 'He'd never do that, and if he did, I got something for him, too.'"


Drake and Eminem collaborated seven years ago, on Drizzy's superstar-summit single "Forever," which also had Kanye West and Lil Wayne

On Hot 97, Ebro also said Drake DM'ed Joe Budden—who has dropped four Aubrey diss tracks in the last month—"I hope you get well in this tough time." Budden's version of the DM exchange, shared last week in an ESPN Radio interview, was much more collegial, with Drizzy inviting him to one of the Madison Square Garden shows on the Summer Sixteen Tour and betting Joe $10,000 that he couldn't writing 25 diss songs before then.
