"[Logic] has done way too well in music for you to tell him anything," Rosenberg told Joe Budden.

The Internet had a lot to say about Logic’s cover of Ice Cube’s “Today Was A Good Day” including Joe Budden and Peter Rosenberg. The podcast host made it evidently clear that he was not feeling Logic’s cover of the iconic record, specifically his use of the N-word. He explained in a fiery tirade that he felt Logic frequently panders to different groups with his records, such as “1-800-273-8255,” the hit record named after the suicide helpline. 

“Logic, I beg of you, I’m pleading with you: please join me in retirement,” Budden said. “Never step near a recording device again! Throw your phone in the ocean! Be allergic to microphones! Promise your fans nothing! Don’t go to the studio ever again! You are the worst, yo! You are really, really bad!” Budden’s comments towards Logic are only mildly surprising since he’s previously criticized the College Park rapper in the past. However, Joe Budden later apologized when Logic explained how hurtful the comments were, though others, like Peter Rosenberg, suggested the criticism came from a place of resent.

Joe Budden Vs. Peter Rosenberg

Though many disliked Logic’s cover, not everyone felt as passionately about it as Joe Budden. Twitter came for the Mood Muzik rapper, especially since Budden’s criticism evidently weighed heavy on Logic in the past. Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg suggested that Joe Budden’s own career in rap can’t hold a candle to Logic’s. “Logic has TWO Billboard Number 1 albums ... 3 platinum albums, 1 gold album and a nearly diamond single,” Peter Rosenberg wrote. “sorry [Joe Budden] -- i love ya..and the ice cube cover was not a great choice .. but he has done way too well in music for you to tell him anything.”

Rosenberg’s argument didn’t sway Budden’s opinion at all. “Love you too Pete but by this ‘logic’, you shouldn’t be telling me anything about podcasting,” he responded. Budden’s referencing his previous appearance on Hot 97 in 2016 where the former rapper walked out mid-interview. During the interview, Rosenberg explained that he didn’t feel like Budden gave him credit for setting him up with a studio for his podcast, the previously titled, I’ll Name This Podcast Later. However, Budden refuted those claims then. Check out Joe Budden’s response to Peter Rosenberg above.
