Rory and Mal Drop First Episode of New Podcast After Departure From the JBP

New Rory and Mal!

Weeks after being fired from The Joe Budden Podcast, on Friday, June 11, Rory Farrell and  Jamil ‘Mal’ Clay dropped the first episode from their new podcast, New Rory and Mal.

“I just kind of wanted to shut the fuck up for a few weeks,” said Rory in the episode. “It was five years of non-stop talking. I was listening back to old episodes and I was like, ‘Yo, can this kid just shut the f*ck up?’ It was definitely a self-awareness time of a few weeks. I just don’t—my opinion shouldn’t be out there.”

The two did not delve into their fallout with Joe Budden and subsequent firing from the podcast. They already explained the entire situation in a Vimeo exclusive. It seems as if they have decided to move on from the situation. In the hour-long episode, the duo talked about a host of topics, including taking a few weeks from podcasting while hanging out in Los Angeles, being in the VIP section in the club, Elon Musk, Floyd Mayweather, Culture III, and other topics.

“Let’s try some different shit,” Mal said of the show. “Let’s change the optics a little bit on this media culture or whatever you wanna call it.”

While they explained that they did not want to make the pod “guest based” they said that they will feature they really appreciate.

“We’re gonna give people us, you know what I mean? Obviously, we’re doing this together. But you’re gonna have your shit that you’re doing on your own,” Mal said. “I’m gonna have my shit that I’m doing on my own. And we’re gonna be putting it out in a cool way and having fun with this shit.”

Katt Williams on Cancel Culture: ‘Nobody Likes The Speed Limit But It’s Necessary’

Katt Williams on Cancel Culture: 'Nobody Likes The Speed Limit But It's Necessary'

Many people argue that cancel culture “killed” a lot of things but Katt Williams questions if it even exists.

Williams was asked “Where do you stand on comics’ ability to be comics without judgment and repercussions from cancel culture?” during a conversation on the Joe Budden podcast.

“Some of these things are for the benefit of everything,” the comedian responded. “Nobody likes the speed limit, but it’s necessary. Nobody likes the shoulder of the road, but it’s there for a reason. My point is, [people] weren’t all that extremely funny back when they could say whatever they wanted to say.”

He continued, “At the end of the day, there’s no cancel culture. Cancellation doesn’t have its own culture.”

Katt Williams went on to elaborate that cancel culture didn’t effect people “we wish we had back” and said comedian’s aren’t here to make people upset.

“I don’t know what people got cancelled that we wish we had back. Who are they? It’s done for the reasons it’s done for and it helped who it helped,” Williams said. “If all that’s going to happen is that we have to be more sensitive in the way that we talk, isn’t that what we want anyway? I’m saying, your job as a comedian is to please the most amount of people with your art. Don’t call somebody this word when you know it affects all of these people.”

He concluded, “If these are the confines that keep you from doing the craft God put you to, then it probably ain’t for you.”

Joe Budden Apologizes For Publicly Firing Rory and Mal From Podcast

'The Joe Budden Podcast' Set to Depart Spotify in Mid-September

Joe Budden issued an apology after publicly firing his “friends” and co-hosts, Rory and Mal, from The Joe Budden Podcast.

“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,” the former emcee said in the most recent episode of the podcast, adding that, “things sound a lot spicier in the go-out.”

Joe claims he requested for the now-viral clip to be edited 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 said. “When I say I didn’t ask you to do shit for me—‘cause I don’t ask y’all to do shit for me but that’s a man thing to me. You just don’t ask men too much shit 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.”

“When do you say that and not sound like a dickhead?” He continued, “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***a 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.”

Rory and Mal have issued a statement following their departure from the popular podcast. In a new clip titled, I’ll Name This Response Later, the pair discuss their side of the breakup and Mal gives his take on why he thinks the show was successful.

“I feel like Joe feels like a lot of the success of this podcast is based over his music career,” Mal said. “And my thing is, it’s not. I been in some of these cities when you were a rapper, Joe. … This many people weren’t showing up for you.

“Through all of this, I’ve had time to replay some shit in my head,” he continued. “He said something at the Highline Ballroom show we did, when we were in the dressing room. He had went outside, he had recorded the people wrapped around the corner and he came back and he said, ‘Yo, I got these n***as wrapped around the block. I got the line around the corner.’ And I looked at him and I said, ‘Joe, you don’t have the line around the corner. We have the line around the corner.’ Because you’ve done shows here before, and you’ve never had the line around the corner.”

What are your thoughts on Joe Budden’s apology and Rory and Mal no longer being on the pod?

The JBP Boyz Are Byke To Business: Rory & Mal Return To ‘The Joe Budden Podcast’

Joe Budden Podcast Live - New York, NY

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

The Joe Budden Podcast went through a lineup change recently when longtime co-hosts Jamil “Mal” Clay and Rory Farrell left for reasons only known to them. On Wednesday (4/28), the JBP Boyz joined host Joe Budden after a few weeks and it appears that loyal fans of the pod are excited about the news.

While Rory and Mal’s presence was definitely missed, Joe Budden’s friends, Ice, and Ish, filled in capably while learning the job of podcasting on the fly. Both men, just like Rory and Mal, have career and business interests not related to the podcast world, but they brought a certain amount of real talk and tough love that fans of the show have rarely witnessed over the past five years.

Fan speculation as to why Rory and Mal vacated their microphone duties has ranged from unspoken beef to money issues and a host of other maladies. While we haven’t listened to the latest podcast episode to know exactly what Rory and Mal’s takes are, it is known that Budden was in contact with Rory over the break and it was apparent Budden missed his friends more than he missed them being co-hosts.

The return to the normal format might be a bit of a shakeup again for some considering the chemistry Ice and Ish provided, along with vocalist Emanny and other random guests. The podcast was just finding a good rhythm with the updated lineup, but the fans were committed to a return of the original crew during the duration.

At any rate, it’s good to see the gang back together. Hopefully, and perhaps with a larger space, Ish and Ice can make it back on later episodes.

The Joe Budden Network to Move to Patreon

Joe Budden Reveals He Has COVID-19

The Joe Budden Network has announced the move to Patreon where fans can now subscribe to premium content including bonus episodes of the Joe Budden Podcast every month. In addition, there will be new content franchises and more.

Joe Budden will also serve as Patreon’s Head of Creator Equity, working alongside the company to fight for industry-wide change to alter the system for creators. The announcement continues to highlight Patreon’s commitment to enhancing a robust creative economy where creators get the biggest stake in their products.

“Joe understands the discrepancy between what creators are worth and what they are paid,” said Jack Conte, Patreon CEO and co-founder. “From music to podcasts, Joe has found himself reaching millions of people and getting a tiny fraction of the value he has created. That’s exactly the problem that Patreon set out to solve — and Joe wants to help. We’re excited to start working with him and figuring out even more ways to close the gap between the value that creators bring into the world and what they’re actually paid.”

“I’ve seen firsthand that exploitation is everywhere in this industry – it’s become the status quo, and I’m tired of it,” said Budden. “I’m tired of constantly fighting for independence and I’m tired of proving my value over and over again. This partnership with Patreon marks a new era for the creative economy: one where independence comes first and creators get paid – something that shouldn’t be revolutionary. Creators should get the biggest stake in their art and the system isn’t ready to do that, so we’re going to change the system. This is the new blueprint and we are the first.”

The Joe Budden network will have access to a variety of benefits across three membership levels Homies ($5.00/month), Family ($10.00/month), and Friend of the Show ($25.00/month). In addition to exclusive episodes, it will also feature brand new content franchises, behind-the-scenes content, a members-only Discord, and priority notice when Joe goes back on the road.

Starting today, fans can visit Patreon.com/joebudden to subscribe.

‘The Joe Budden Podcast’ Set to Depart Spotify in Mid-September

'The Joe Budden Podcast' Set to Depart Spotify in Mid-September

The relationship between the good brothers of The Joe Budden Podcast and streaming giant Spotify is all but over. In Wednesday’s episode titled “Views From The Spot,” Joe led a discussion detailing the end of their relationship for now after the upcoming six episodes.

Speaking alongside co-hosts Rory, Mal, and Parks and in the representation of their supportive team, Joe stated Spotify is “pillaging” his audience.

During the discussion, Budden would detail how he viewed acquisitions of other podcast services and podcasts as a whole, while essentially using his show as a test subject for a market that they believed was a long shot to gain ground in. Budden also revealed that his show was meant to be the number two show for the brand after they were creating a show for comedian Amy Schumer, which to their surprised flopped, while The JBP skyrocketed within the first hour of its premiere on the platform, while also holding the top spot for two years.

“September 23rd, I cannot tell you where this podcast will be,” Budden said. “But as it stands, I can tell you where it will not be, and that is Spotify.”

Joe would also detail receiving a phone call from Bill Simmons after he received a $250 million deal from the streaming service about assistance with his podcast, a short-sited offer from Simmons as Budden’s show was already successful.

During the show, Joe let it be known that he was not bitter and during his experience, both entities hit their goals and revenue has been coming in from other sources. He would also state the money was far more than he has ever been offered but he did not feel that it would be in the best interest of him and his team.

You can hear the full episode, including a toast to celebrate the team’s achievements below.

Pump, Pump, Pump Ya Breaks: Joe Budden Calls Ari Lennox “Insecure” Over Response To Twitter Troll

REVOLT X AT&T Host REVOLT 3-Day Summit In Los Angeles - Day 1

Say it ain’t so Joe.

At a time when many people are saying, “new year, new me,” some folks are keeping the old narrative going by continuing to police how Black women respond to slander. As previously reported Ari Lennox took to Twitter to respond to a troll who gave the “Shea Butter Baby” songstress and Teyana Taylor a backhanded compliment, by comparing the two women to dogs.

“Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor’s ability to have dangerously high sex appeal while simultaneously looking like rottweilers will always amaze me,” the troll wrote.

Ari responded by cautioning parents to love on their children and teach them to love their features.

“People hate blackness so bad,” Lennox wrote in a retweet caption featuring the offending tweet. She followed the missive with, “Moms and Dads please love on your beautiful black children. Tell them they’re beautiful constantly. Tell them Black people are beautiful. Tell them black features are beautiful.”

While many championed Ari Lennox for her reaction, Joe Budden decided to use the incident on his show, Joe Budden Podcast, to insist that the Dreamville artist’s response came from a  place of insecurity rather than confidence.

“Does anything about the Ari Lennox thing scream insecurity to you?” Joe said. “Insecurity. How you feel about you versus how what people feel about you versus how what people feel about you does to how you feel about you. Insecurity.  And while there may be variations of it or different reasons of why it stems, insecurity is insecurity.”

He also questioned if Ari actually feels like “black is beautiful” for feeling the need to respond to the troll at all.

“So when I hear you reply to people like whoever this pawn dude is, it’s like, are you telling me how beautiful the blackness is, or are you telling you, because if you truly feel like that, if you truly believe that black is beautiful, as beautiful as it is, and you embody that, you will not use your energy, your platform, your power… when you negate that power or misuse it by replying to just whatever [this person] has anything to say, then what we really doing here? How do you really feel about you?”

While I’m sure Joe Budden thought he was kicking knowledge, he seems to forget about two things, one—he wore leather vests in the summer and was wilding out on anyone who whispered his name via Twitter; and two—no one asked him.

Listen, this is not a Black man versus Black woman piece, but it is saying that it’s time to stop telling Black women how to respond to people who are intentionally trying to inflict emotional pain. Earlier this week after continuous bullying from trolls , Lizzo announced she was quitting Twitter after constantly being attacked for her weight.

”Yeah I can’t do this Twitter shit no more.. too many trolls,” Lizzo wrote. “I’ll be back when I feel like it.”

Although the art of trolling is a topic within itself, we can’t overlook how many times the social media site has been used to demean Black women. From Blue Ivy to Lizzo, trolls have continuously attacked Black women and our features without much being said by our male counterparts. Please note I am not saying Black men do not take up for Black women, but what I am saying is we need more Black men to be vocal about being against Black women slander as they are about dragging Black women for speaking up for themselves.

When Marc Lamont Hill used his voice to speak out against the bullying that Lizzo faced from plus sized vlogger Boyce Watkins, instead of a barrage of men rallying behind to stop the nonsense they added him to the dragging.

Joe Budden’s tactic of using the pain of Black women to push his narrative not only erases her voice, but elevates him to be the topic of conversation versus keeping the focus on the real issue—the abhorrent treatment of Black women.

While I could go on and on about the need for Black men and women to stick together to fight against the outside forces of racism and bigotry that continue to try to tear down our houses, I won’t because I know it will be ignored and I will be dismissed as just another angry Black woman.

Royce Tells Joe Budden He Has A New Album & It Will Bring Budden Out Of Retirement

Just over two weeks ago (November 14), Royce 5’9 released his second single of 2019. Now a music video, “Black Savage” features Sy Ari Da Kid, White Gold, CyHi The Prynce and T.I. The song re-contextualized the disparaging term by instead, wearing it as a proud title. The song now plays during NFL games as part of JAY-Z and Roc Nation’s partnership with the league. “Black Savage” also marks Royce’s most noteworthy production to date in a year where he’s expanded his repertoire. During the show’s 300th episode (“The London”) of The Joe Budden Podcast With Rory & Mal, Budden called up his former Slaughterhouse band-mate. Near the 70:00 mark, Joe tells his crew, “Let me tell you something: on that Royce – ‘Black Savages’ record, in my head, the third verse is me.” Then, Budden decides to call Nickel Nine. Moments into the friendly call, Joe says, “In my head, I move T.I., and I’m the third verse.” Royce laughed. As Joe’s co-hosts tease Budden that he’s out of shape from the microphone, Royce says he’s willing to work with his longtime collaborator. However, while joking around, Royce confirmed a followup to 2018’s The Book Of Ryan, named one of Ambrosia For Heads top albums of that year. Royce 5’9, T.I. & CyHi Use Bold Bars To Redefine The Meaning Of Savage (Video) “I’m telling you, my album gonna bring you out of retirement,” says Royce. At 75:00, Parks asks Royce if he produced the entire LP. In April, fellow Slaughterhouse alum Kxng Crooked confirmed that 5’9 was producing his group and moving behind the boards. “I produced the whole thing. The only reason I think it’s gonna make you want to rap, Joe, is because I could tell you’re just looking for a reason to want to rap. You’re literally baiting people into conversations to bait you into rap.” Last fall, Budden had a standoff with “Black Savages” guest CyHi. “I’m bored,” Joe admits with laughter, bringing up the CyHi situation. Royce says, “CyHi—that’s god-level” of his guest and the Budden challenger. At the top of 2019, Royce also released a la carte single “Field Negro.” Kxng Crooked Explains Why Slaughterhouse Needs To Release One Last Album #BonusBeat: Listen to the full episode (#300) of The Joe Budden Podcast:

Max B Makes Appearance On The Joe Budden Podcast [Listen]

Joe Budden Podcast

Source: Courtesy of Joe Budden / Joe Budden

Even though he continues to serve his time Max B’s name is still ringing in the streets. Wavy Crockett recently made an appearance on Joe Budden’s platform.

As spotted on HipHopDX Wavy Crockett called in to The Joe Budden Podcast on Wednesday, November 20 and made it clear that the jail bars can’t contain his infectious personality from the world. While the Harlem native and the show crew only talked for about nine minutes but it was just enough to keep listeners tuned in.

Naturally they asked about his mind state while serving his bid and his confidence seems to be an all time high. “I’m grinding just trying to make sh*t out of nothing, you heard,” he confessed. “The wave never dies. The earth is 75 percent water. I’m the water. I’m not going anywhere.”

Biggavelli also made it clear when he finally touches the town he will be making an array of collaborations happen including Young Thug. “A lot of dudes is waiting for me to come home,” he revealed. “They want to give me that feature in person.”

The man born Charlie Wingate was originally sentenced to 75 years for felony murder for his alleged involvement in lining a man up at a New Jersey hotel. Thankfully his judgement has been since reduced and set to be a free man sometime in 2021.

You can listen to the interview below.

Spicy Boys: Nicki Minaj Sits Down With The Joe Budden Podcast & Fans Aren’t Feeling It #JoeBuddenPodcast

Joe Budden Podcast Live - New York, NY

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

Early Wednesday morning (August 14), The Joe Budden Podcast found itself trending on Twitter as fans tuned in to hear what Nicki Minaj would be bringing to the set with Joe Budden, Rory, Mal, and Parks. It appears that whatever angst Minaj had during her Queen Radio episode that saw her barking on Budden was still present as she joined the pod to let off more steam and fans weren’t with it.

The Spotify Boys were the subject of discussion earlier this week after the Queen Radio episode was made available to the masses, and brewing beef between Budden and Minaj was made more apparent. Minaj checked Budden on a variety of statements he made regarding Minaj, including claiming she was on drugs which led to a shouting match and Budden’s microphone being shut off.

On Budden’s podcast this morning, Minaj was locked and loaded, once again letting Budden know that she believes that he is unable to handle women who have powerful voices and that he has an inability to admit when he’s wrong. Longtime fans of the show know that Budden often contradicts himself with minutes of an utterance and many of his opinions are off the cuff but he will begrudgingly admit fault.

Minaj kept the scope aimed at Budden for an hour or so before jetting off and fans couldn’t have been happier once she left. One user even tweeted a timestamp of when Minaj left the couch, adding to a growing chorus of criticism. Of course, there were some who welcomed the Queens superstar’s presence while supporting her stances but they were drowned out by dissenters.

We’ve captured some of the Twitter reactions from Nicki Minaj’s appearance on The Joe Budden Podcast below.
