Joe Budden Apologizes to Logic for Celebrating His Retirement
In the past year, Joe Budden and the fellow hosts of the Joe Budden Podcast have used their platform to express opinions on Logic‘s decade long career. After Budden dubbed him the worst rapper in hip-hop and celebrated his retirement, the podcast personality is changing his tune about the Under Pressure rapper.
On Thursday (June 23), Joe Budden issued an apology to the 30-year-old emcee for celebrating his forthcoming retirement with harshly worded jokes.
“Logic, I’m sorry man,” Joe begins. “Log, let me tell you what happened,” he goes on. “When you talking to him with humility, you say a cool name,” Budden explains, abbreviating the rapper’s stage name. “To let him know you’re gracious. Log, last week I came in here feeling pretty tumultuous. Fresh out of Twitter jail, unable to properly read the room and just hating myself and life, honestly. And unfortunately, I projected some of that onto you Log. And for that, I want to apologize.”
As the apology goes on, the “Pump It Up” rapper acknowledged how his opinions on Logic’s music should not been expressed during a time that was meant for celebration. Joe even goes on to mention how he was able to retire without much strife.
“That was wrong of me,” continues Joe. “I should be able to think that you aren’t the best rapper in the world, but celebrate your retirement. Because that is a time where somebody should be happy and look back on their career and get shit off and be with their fans. Nobody wants to hear from this fucking old grumpy fuck saying fuck you and shut up. Especially after that guy was allowed to retire peacefully. I felt bad.”
“They happy that he’s leaving. Why you think I got the fucking celebration song queued up, man? Let’s celebrate Logic getting the fuck outta here, nigga. You should’ve retired a long time ago, Logic.”
After the two times, Logic has been dissed by Budden, the “Like Woah” rhymer has never responded back to him or his cruel comments. But has made statements suggesting that music journalist and their critiques of his artistry have affected how he feels about himself as a rapper.
