On March 8, Joe Budden revealed on his podcast that he hates Logic's music. On March 10, Kxng Crooked asked why. Budden has finally answered the question. He revealed why he does not like the man behind the music. During the Joe Budden podcast on March 8, they talked about Logic's cover of Ice Cube's " It Was a Good Day". Budden had some choice words to say about Logic, saying that he should just retire and stop making songs. "Logic, I beg of you, I'm pleading with you: please join me in retirement. Never step near a recording device again... You are the worst, yo! You are really, really bad!"
Two days later, Budden's former groupmate, Kxng Crooked, responded to the episode on social media, asking Budden why he hates Logic's music so much. He thinks that there are plenty of people that are in bigger need of being bullied into retirement. "Why does dude hate Logic's music so much? Serious question. It's some rappers I wish would retire waaaaaayyy before Logic."
Joe Budden Responds
Budden's response to Kxng Crooked reveals that he hates Logic not because of his music, but rather because he is a kiss-ass. He also implies that Kxng Crooked is just as much of a kiss-ass as Logic for trying to fight Logic's battle for him, instead of letting the man fight them himself. He implies this by refusing to give names and saying that people should fight their own fights. Something that Kxng Crooked is not letting Logic do. When asked to list names instead of being vague on who is on he is talking about, Budden claims that it is not worth the hassle, implying that there are many people he is talking about simultaneously and not just Logic.
Kxng Crooked had walked into a longer beef than he probably realized. The two had been going at it for literally years. It is so bad that Budden was part of the reason why Logic retired in 2020. In 2022, he was on a podcast and responded to Budden's hatred of him. He thinks that he is a hurt person who likes to make other people feel as bad as he does.
