Rory and Mal have not shown up for two episodes of The Joe Budden Podcast, and JoeBudden explained that they had fallen out over business.
“I’ll eliminate some of the suspense. Rory and Mal aren’t here, but this is Rory’s seat — this is not Ice’s seat — and this is Mal’s seat. Whenever they feel like returning to their seats, then they’ll return to their seats, then I can go back to work. And then what will happen is the same thing when your star player comes back to the team,” he explained.
He continued, “Sometimes in friendship and business, everyone needs to take a step back and go to their respective corners. Sometimes everyone’s perspective and perception on how to go about that and how it should be executed is different.”
Budden also added that there is no beef between the three but that the hiatus is over respect.
“It’s not a beef. Nobody has communicated a beef. What they have communicated to me is something is wrong. Whether that be in our friendship, how we’re speaking to each other, the respect level,” he said.
