However, despite it being a year later, there still seems to be some smoke between the duo and Joe Budden. On the latest episode of their podcast, “Accountability in Culture Pt. 2,” a response to Joe Budden‘s “Accountability in Culture,” Mal responded to Joe’s comments that he didn’t contribute to the former podcast.
“I’m willing to go on your platform, your new show that still has my blood, sweat and tears in it. And I know that’s what pains him,” said Mal. “Every time he pay for pussy, that’s some of my money. Every vacation he takes a chick on, that’s some of my money he using. And that pains him.”
“The most money he ever made in his life, he made sitting next to me,” he continues in the clip. “I know that pains him, but we had a beautiful thing. It worked. Every time he goes to the strip club, he throws singles; those is my faces on them singles. It hurts.”
The back and forth was promoted after CyHi The Prynce made a comment responding to Joe Budden saying he could rap better than him.
“You know what it is with me and you bruh,” CyHi said as he looked directly at the camera. “Any day you feel like you can rap better than me … I put my offer on the table and you rich enough to accept it but you ain’t accepted it.”
Mal then chimed him with, “Yeah he stole enough. He stole enough he got it.” Rory added: “He can pay you with my money!”
Joe Budden responded in his “Accountability in Culture” episode with the following:
“No matter how many new beginnings you start, and no matter how many of those new people you get around you, some of us know you. That would be me,” he said at the 1:50 mark. “So please stop spreading these lies. You’ve never had anything for me to steal from, that’s not the nature of this relationship. This is some sick role reversal shit going on, and I’m not mad at nobody else calling me a thief. But you can’t call me no fucking thief. No, I will not have it.”
“You’ve never pulled your own weight. The first never meant nothing to you. There’s never been like responsibility, you never got up and carried your own shit. There’s always been another n-gga around to help you do it, and you don’t speak to them n-ggas no more neither so this is not Joe specifically. Stop putting smut on my name. I’m gonna start showing up for myself cause that’s my problem with the fucking internet.”
