He also clarified his stance on returning to Rap in this teaser of his episode.

It's time for another captivating episode of Drink Champs, and Joe Budden is comfortable in the hot seat. The rapper-turned-podcast giant knows what it's like to be on both sides of the interviewing fence. So, when he sat with Noreaga and DJ EFN, he didn't have a problem addressing controversial topics. The Joe Budden Podcast is a regular fixture on the 'going viral' news circuit, and Nore didn't waste any time. We'll have to wait a little longer for the entire conversation to hit streaming services, but the teaser is enough to get Hip Hop fans' tongues wagging.

Drink Champs dropped off the teaser to Budden's appearance, and it's shaping to be a must-watch. Noreaga was excited for the sit down with the "Petty King" and asked Budden about his relationship with Charlamagne Tha God. "Nothing," he said about The Breakfast Club host with a smile. "We just hate each other." He also spoke on someone who wanted to produce him, but Budden admitted he isn't easy to work with. He says he is "difficult to produce" because he knows his way around a studio setup.

Joe Budden Hit With Hard Questions

Budden's tension with former podcast co-hosts Rory Farrell and Jamil "Mal" Clay was also discussed during the conversation. In 2021, the pair exited The Joe Budden Podcast bitterly and detailed their fallout with their longtime friend. N.O.R.E. questioned the "Pump It Up" hitmaker about where they all stand now, but we'll have to wait for his full answer. It also looks like he'll tackle all those Slaughterhouse questions, as well, so fans are waiting to hear what Budden reveals about his former collaborators...and Eminem. "I'll take the blame. I'll take it. I ruined everything. Everything that you love, I ruined that sh*t," said Budden. Noreaga quickly joked, "I believe you."

Elsewhere, Budden touched on the requests for him to return to the mic. "Nah, I think there's a lot of people that either want to hear me rap or want to tear me down when I start rapping," he said. Further, he addressed critics who have called him "mean" over his remarks. He denied being a cruel person but said he did "want people to continue to think that." Check out the teaser above and let us know if you'll be tuning in.
