Joe Budden finally addressed Diddy during his latest podcast.

Joe Budden has addressed the latest video of Diddy appearing to assault Cassie at a hotel in 2016, labeling the Bad Boy mogul a "lying sack of sh*t." He spoke about the incident during the latest episode of his podcast, which comes after he previously edited out a segment on Diddy, last week.

"Before we even get to the lies told on Instagram pertaining to the case," Budden began, seemingly referencing Diddy's apology video. "I'm talking about the lie of Black excellence. It's a few of you n****s moseying around out here under the good name of Black excellence and you n****s are living like pieces of sh*t. This ain't 20 to 30 years ago. N***a you not white. You can't do what them white n****s do and say, 'Hey I'm checking into rehab,' and all will be well. You ain't white and this ain't 20 or 30 f*cking years ago." Diddy apologized for the incident and said he's been going to therapy in an attempt to better himself in a video on social media on Sunday.

Budden previously defended his decision to cut out a segment on Diddy during last week's episode, saying that the news broke as they were wrapping up the recording. "I took it out because it was insensitive for the moment," he told fans afterward. "I was talking for four minutes about what happened, and in three minutes at the end, it was not the attention that the story needed, and it wasn’t the commentary that it needed. So, I don’t need to be the first one to run to something.”
