Joe Budden holds nothing back during his conversation with "The Therapist."
Whether you like him or hate him, there's no denying that Joe Budden has his foot pressed firmly against the industry's throat. Known for his brash, uncensored and often controversial take, Budden has been making a lasting impression in his newfound role as "media Joe," co-host of Everyday Struggle. While some might be quick to write him off, Budden is often able to rationalize even the most ardent of his beliefs, and while he can be prone to moodiness, there's a sharp mind beneath the surface. If you didn't know, Joe Budden was at the center of a mini-beef with Migos, after the group felt disrespected by one of Akademiks' comments vis-a-vis "Bad And Boujee." You can check out the incident below, after the jump.
Now, after the incident spawned countless memes and commentary on Migos' wardrobe, Joe Budden has hit up Viceland's series The Therapist, joining the ranks of rappers like Freddie Gibbs and Chief Keef. With the episode is set to air tonight, the network shared a preview of the conversation, in which Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh asks Joe Budden about the infamous incident.
"I'm not going to sit there, while three young men give me their ass to kiss," says Joe, standing by his "ethics and his morals." When Dr. Singh asks Joey how he felt during the interview, Budden's response is straight to the point. "Oh fuck these ni**as...It was a false sense of entitlement from these three gentlemen. While my novice co-host and my moderator will sit through it, I will not. I was behind the scenes saying "why are we even talking to these people?"
You might not agree with how it all went down, but Joe has no illusions about his public perception. In fact, he owns it, proudly stating "I'm blunt, I'm insensitive, I'm not filtered, I'm not censored. Things could go left."
