Joe Budden Scolds Logic For Covering Ice Cube’s Track Begs To Join Him In "Permanent Rap Retirement" - WhatsOnRap

Joe Budden Begs Logic To Quit Rap — Again: 'Please Join Me In Retirement'

Joe Budden has joined O'Shea Jackson among many other critics in condemning Logic's song of Ice Cube's "Today Was A Good Day." Last week, Logic performed the legendary song during a live set for his YouTube channel, but his melodic approach to the record was one of the many criticisms leveled at the tune. 

Joe Budden now hopes that the Maryland MC will take this as a sign to retire from the microphone for good.“Logic, I beg of you, I’m pleading with you: please join me in retirement,” Budden said. “Be allergic to microphones! Promise your fans nothing! Don’t go to the studio ever again! You are the worst, yo! You are really, really bad!”

“And then when we think he can’t get any worse, you have the bright idea of doing an Ice Cube flip,”  Budden concluded. At this point, the ex-Slaughterhouse rapper stated that he was offended by Logic's usage of the N-word in the song. 

“Logic is just not himself. I just think that Logic should be himself. He panders to the Black community every other second,” he said. Well, that’s the problem with panders, is that they always gotta find something new to pander to.”

Joe Budden was not pleased with Logic's version of Ice Cube's hit. His battle with the Young Sinatra rapper, on the other hand, dates back to 2017, when Logic released "1-800-273-8255."

“I thought that was disgusting, but I could have been wrong,” he explained. “But ever since then, all of that Martin Luther King, ‘We Have a Dream,’ freedom fighter speech shit he be trying to do, I don’t buy it. Now, I can be wrong in that.”

Budden indicated the part by saying that Logic's overt attempt to connect with various fanbases has turned him off to his music. The podcast host explained that it felt too staged and that it may have been more about giving Logic an identity through his persona.

“I don’t know where to begin with why I don’t buy it. I think that if you have to do so much pandering to make someone believe it, then I think you’re trying to make yourself believe it,” he said.
