After receiving some backlash for his rant about former friends and fellow podcast hosts Rory and Mal... Joe Budden issued an apology to both of them.
"Seeing all of this feedback and all this... I do need to apologize to Rory, as well. Maybe Rory and Mal, too, but definitely Rory," Joe said, adding that "things sound a lot spicier in the go-out."
"Ever since that last pod, I've just been having like pictures in my head of every moment that me and the guys have ever had together," he continued. "When I say I didn't ask you to do sh*t for me -- 'cause I don't ask y'all to do sh*t for me but that's a man thing to me. You just don't ask men too much sh*t but when I said I didn't ask you to do something, it don't mean I'm not appreciative. It don't mean I'm not grateful. It just means I never asked."
Joe said he wanted the firing to be edited out at first.
"I don't want that to affect people I love which is why I'm going to apologize to Rory because me and Rory have so many fly n*gga moments together. Like, fly, friend type of vibey -- like, it's unfortunate that they might not feel that we're so friendly today and it's unfortunate that I can't tell you how we got here, maybe aside from -- if I'm taking accountability -- poor leadership skills," he said.
