Joe Budden Says Miley Cyrus 'Is White Privilege At Its Finest'

The rapper held no punches.

Published October 5, 2017

Miley Cyruspop-infused rendition of Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" is slowly but surely becoming the gift that keeps on giving. Just a few short days after the internet had a full-on roast session regarding her take on the smash hit, it appears as though she has gained yet another critic: Joe Budden

While Miley's take on the club banger wasn't necessarily lackluster, she wasn't also given a standing ovation for the effort. Like much of the internet, Joe Budden found issue with the singer's sudden shift in embracing hip-hop due to her previous comments regarding its misogynystic themes. The Slaughterhouse front man held no punches regarding how he felt about the remix during Thursday's (Oct. 5) episode of Everyday Struggle"What the f*ck is that?" Joe said after reviewing the short clip. "Miley Cyrus is trash."

"White privilege at its finest," he continued. "She 100 percent is a culture vulture. For once, I would like to see creativity guide her career and her not just f*cking stealing some sh*t and make a spectacle out of the culture that I love so much." 

As previously reported, the "Wrecking Ball" singer gave Cardi's record-breaking single a twist during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. While it wasn’t exactly Miley’s idea to remix the song, she participated in a quick game called “Musical Genre Challenge" along with host Jimmy Fallon, in which she was instructed to sing a popular track in the form of another genre. And, once the music genre generator landed on “Bodak Yellow” in the style of pop, Miley was left to channel her inner emcee. 

Take a look at Joe Budden's remarks on Miley Cyrus' twist on "Bodak Yellow" at the 15:40 mark below.
