Joe Budden called out Travis Scott and Playboi Carti during the latest episode of his podcast in response to their Grammy performance. He labeled their appearance on stage, "f*ckin stupid" and called them "bozos." While he says he likes the song," Fein," he didn't think it made sense for the event.

"What the f**k is Travis and his man doing up here?" Budden began. "Ay, you two bozos! Get the f**k off the stage when n***as got beautiful women and tuxedos on, honestly. You up there smashing s**t. You got the nerve." From there, Budden's co-host compared the set to Scott's Super Bowl performance.

Budden continued: "All that s**t look different when it ain't a thousand little white kids jumping up and down. When there are grown people here, all that 'fein, fein, fein,' that's what you wanted to win over Killer Mike? You're f**kin' stupid!" Of Playboi Carti specifically, he added: "You bring your man out, Playboi Carti. The crowd just stays silent. Playboi Carti looked confused like, 'y'all don't know who I am?" No, n***a! You got a f**king mask on. Who the f**k are you under there? You are not at SXSW anymore! We can't recognize you Bozo's by the stocking mask you wearing. I hate these n***as, man, all of 'em! I love that song, I love that song, but not when tuxedos are out. Take that s**t to the dirty Coachella grass n***a. N***a's showered and lathered themselves tonight."
