Joe Budden traded in his rap title to become a cultural commentator and the payoff seems obvious. With a budding show on Revolt and a highly successful self-titled podcast, the former Slaughterhouse emcee doesn't necessarily need nor appears to have the desire to hit the studio anytime soon. However, this doesn't stop his name from being dragged into hip-hop warfare.
Amid him being dissed on Eminem's "Fall," the Harlem native had no problem reminding fans how he truly feels about Em."I’ve been better than you this entire f**king decade!,” proclaimed Joe. Now G.O.O.D. Music emcee Cyhi The Prynce wants to go head-to-head with Budden.
Cyhi stated that he and Joe are cool, he "will end his rap and podcast career, but if he wants to put up $500K, let's get it. Doing it face to face so [Joe] can look the GOD in his eyes while he takes his soul." Joe doesn't usually entertain trolling statements like this, so his petty response is real AF. "You don't even believe this," said Budden.
The two then went back-and-forth on twitter. One fan inquired about why Cyhi didn't challenge him when Joe wasn't retired and Cyhi curtly said, it's because Joe wasn't a hater then. However, Joe promptly reminded him, in a since deleted tweet, that it's really because he "wasn't cooning then."
