Telling it like it is!
Sometimes, when rappers and hip-hop artists have beef with one another, they bury sly shade in their songs; you’d have to be very familiar with the situation in order to understand. Some songs can go for ages before people realize that a rapper was dissing someone else.
Other people aren’t so subtle.
Someone who epitomizes the latter category is Joe Budden, who has been getting into some inflammatory red carpet experiences these days. Calling out DJ Akademiks, including some very choice phrases, certainly didn’t help.
An Infamous Interview
If you missed the interview involving Joe Budden, Migos, and DJ Akademiks on Sunday, you’re in for a treat. It easily became one of the most infamous interviews in hip-hop history.
Things were fine until Ak asked Taekoff about “Bad and Boujee.” That’s when things took a downward turn. The incident didn’t end until Budden dropped the mic and stormed away from the interview. Migos jumped to their feet as though they were about to get into a fight, but security got involved before anything got too out of hand. Budden has a lot to say about the incident though.
A Tense Exchange
People are still speculating about what put Budden in such a bad mood before this interview, but he clearly took it out on everyone around him. Interview host Akademiks asked, “I feel like that’s a running joke: you being left off ‘Bad and Boujee.'” Takeoff replied, “You say I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Does it look like I’m left off ‘Bad and Boujee?'”
Akademiks seemed interested in continuing to speak with Migos, but it became clear Budden would want to be anywhere but there. He said, “Okay, we gotta wrap this up, though.”
As Akademiks gave an outro, saying that he wished he could talk to Migos longer, Budden simply stood up and walked away. That’s when Migos all jumped to their feet, and things got tense before security was called.
Now, it seems Budden has his sights set on DJ Akademiks.
The benefit of having your own Podcast is that you get to throw shade at whoever you want, whenever you want. What does Budden really think of DJ Akademiks? Well, he said it pretty clearly when he called Akademiks “one of the biggest p*ssies” he’s ever met.
“DJ Akademiks is one of the biggest p*ssies I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Budden said on the show. “He should never comment on anything that has to do with physicality. Well you gotta stop talking sometimes when you’re a p*ssy … there’s nothing wrong with being a p*ssy, but you got be a p*ssy to the corner sometimes. Just shut up.”
