In an interview with Hot97’s Peter Rosenberg, Logic talked about Joe Budden’s apology for calling him “the worst rapper ever” and saying “he should’ve retired a long time ago.”
“I didn’t see the apology. I didn’t see his review of the album or any of this,” Logic said about the apology. “I literally have no issue with Joe Budden. I’ve never met him. I don’t know him.”
“He doesn’t like me for whatever reason. He wants to say I’m not Black enough. I’m not good enough,” Logic said. “He’s a person who’s led to part of my depression, some of my darkest spaces.”
“Bro, your words, they make people want to kill themselves, bro,” he added.
Budden has spoken negatively about Logic on his podcast in the past, and this week took to his same podcast to apologize.
“I’m sorry man,” Budden said, blaming his actions on his own insecurities. “Last week, I came in here feeling pretty tumultuous. Fresh out of Twitter jail, unable to properly read the room. And just hating myself and life, honestly. Unfortunately, I projected some of that onto you, Lodge. And for that, I want to apologize.”
Logic released his sixth and final studio album No Pressure debuted last week to critical acclaim.
