TELL US SOMETHING WE DON'T KNOW
Media persona Joe Budden has opened up about the breakup of his former rap group, Slaughterhouse. It's all hype for a new upcoming episode of Drink Champs. They posted a clip from its upcoming interview with Joe and the interview is scheduled for release on Thursday (March 23). In the interview clip, Joe says “Come on give me the blame, I’ll take it. I ruined everything. Everything that you loved, I ruined that shit.” “After 10 years long of just stories and talk, yeah, I did it.'” DJ EFN asked him to clarify the statement, he said “yea, it was me.” It’s unclear if Budden is sincere in his admission, but his statements could certainly cause a stir, if true." Joe wanted to own the masters for Slaughterhouse's music which is understandable, but he literally stopped recording with the group leaving everybody wondering what was going on with the group.
I personally think my podcast listening days are slowly coming to an end with the exception of "the Breakfast Club" because it's informational and of course Brooklyn's own Angela Yee's informational show "Way up w Angela Yee" because it's informative and ever-popular "Wealth Wednesdays." (where they give investment tips and more. The podcast space was very interesting to hear people's thoughts when it was new. My Expert Opinion brought back some insight of a craft and the same with the Backstage podcast. Now Joe Budden says his podcast is the best it's ever been without Rory and Mal. He had an interview with the ever-popular DJ Akademiks (lol) where he said “By far to me, though. I’m not saying that people out there would feel like another era was the greatest era. I’m saying that this is the best that this podcast has ever been. “And I’m saying that in the ability to what we can speak about, how we can speak about it, how many opinions and different perspectives, how many people are researched and well-versed in these different topics. There are topics that come up and I gotta shut the fuck up and throw the ball to my older co-hosts.”
Twitter reacted by saying: "Lies. No such thing as a cohesive pod with 5+ mics. But I still listen cuz I like Ish and Ice,” one Twitter user wrote, while another one said: “Joe doesn’t even believe that. This version is such a tough listen (especially with Flip and Mel) I don’t even look forward to the episodes dropping anymore. I actually started listening to the old episodes again.” Lol. It's all personal preference but you can't diss the squad that got you to where you need to be.
When asked about Joe Budden by Talib Kweli, Mal said: “I don’t respect him at all,” Mal stated. “Shake his hand? I’ll shake the room before I shake his hand. That’s just what it is. It’s not even about the business or the money. It’s a lot of money, it’s a lot of money, bro, that me and Rory walked away from. It’s a lot of money that was taken out of our pockets. It’s a lot of money that still to this day, we don’t have any lawyers going after it. Keep it. We got our own bag.”
He continued: “But, with that money that we walked away from, with that, what was owed to us that we walked away from, that was also me walking away from a relationship and a chapter of life that, once I walk away, you know, that door never opens again.”
