A$AP Rocky currently being locked up Swedish prison which is reportedly being poorly kept is sparking a lot of controversy at home stateside. Highly-opinionated rapper turned pop culture pundit, Joe Budden, found himself in the crosshairs of Twitter’s wrath after he called out fellow podcaster Crissle.
The drama all began after Budden commented on people bringing up Rocky’s comments he made in response to the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson back in 2014. Crissle, in response to the #JusticeForRocky movement to get the rapper released from jail, shared a screenshot from the interview with the caption:
“I thought of this when I heard about Asap Rocky’s situation in Sweden.”

Budden, without saying Crissle’s name sent a sub her way and stated on his podcast:
“I don’t like that this is coming up now, I don’t think it adds anything to the narrative.”

“Nor does it change how I feel. If it changes how you feel, then you should look inside your heart. He’s in a real fucked up situation over there, how I feel about that is not altered by how he feels about anything.”
“That’s so nasty on Twitter,” he added, as he addressed the critics. “But that nasty ass bum ass homegirl, I seen her put it out. It’s just like, you niggas that be preaching this pro black shit but get evil in a heartbeat…woo”
A follower brought up Joe’s comments to the co-host of the popular podcast The Read and she let Joe have it.
The fallout quickly followed with plenty of Twitter joining in and dragging Budden by his long cardigan up and down their timelines. You can see all of the Tweets that stemmed from the podcast beef in the gallery below.

Joe Budden coming at Crissle in a recording studio but not Tax when he was sitting directly across from him being blatantly disrespectful speaks volumes.— A (@Hulk_SMASH718) July 10, 2019

Joe Budden is an overly aggressive milk dud and ashies only think he’s profound because he yells a lot. pic.twitter.com/NRCOECgajy— TraceeEllisSAUSE (@NegressElba) July 10, 2019
The Read has been around for seven years and counting. Joe Budden has never had anything last that long. Not his rap career, not a podcast, not good sense...— Randy OD 🇺🇬 (@Avalonsjewel) July 10, 2019
You should be thanking Crissle for contributing to podcasting being an arena Black people could thrive in. Without her your sole hobby would be beating women.— Kelechi (@kelechnekoff) July 10, 2019
Give credit where credit is due babe. 💕
Goes to see why Crissle, Joe Budden and The Read are trending on my TL... pic.twitter.com/1QkmkUuBgv— 𝕁𝕦𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕟 (@TheIllestRican) July 10, 2019

Joe Budden talking about Crissle lacking compassion for ASAP Rocky, but he didn't think of compassion when he was beating his girlfriend or saying homophobic shit? Crissle posted an ASAP quote. Black men want everyone to drop everything to save them when shit goes south.— Panda (@Rimzzzeee) July 10, 2019
Joe Budden has been a women hating clown forever. He’s not new to this, he’s true to this.— The Shrew (@TheActualShrew) July 10, 2019
The fact that Joe Budden is angry with Crissle because she merely "quoted" Asap is exactly what I'm talking about. Argumentative, combative, refuse to take responsibility Black Men STAY getting mad at Black women for shit they can't even comprehend. Ignorance.— Toshia Shaw (@Toshia_Shaw) July 10, 2019
@JoeBudden That #ASAPRocky hill is not the one to die on fam! that man has spewed ignorance and exhibited simple minded behavior more than once! all crissle did was quote exactly what he, ASAP, himself said at that time! There more horrible quotes from him that can be unearthed pic.twitter.com/vX4kdMpG4J— SLAYSARAH 💅🏿 (@SlaySlaysarah) July 10, 2019
