Joe Budden and Logic

Joe Budden Responds After Logic Says He Led Him to Depression

Logic says Joe Budden was the source of many of his dark thoughts.

During an interview with Hot 97, the Maryland rapper opened up about Budden’s frequent criticism. “I literally have no issue with Joe Budden. I’ve never met him, I don’t know him. I’ve never shaken his hand, we’ve never had a conversation man to man,” said Logic. “This is what he does. He doesn’t rap anymore. He speaks on the culture and this and that and that’s cool.”

Despite their non-existent relationship, the podcaster’s hurtful words have led Logic to depression. “This dude doesn’t like me for whatever reason. He wants to say I’m not Black enough, I’m not good enough,” he said. “He’s a person who’s led to part of my depression and some of my darkest spaces.”

He also had a message for his bully: “Your words, they make people want to kill themselves, bro. And that’s a real thing.”

Budden’s dislike for the No Pressure rapper has been well documented. He called him “one of the worst rappers to ever grace a microphone” and even celebrated his recent retirement. “Let’s celebrate Logic getting the f**k out of here,” he said before later apologizing.

But Logic’s recent comments about depression did not draw sympathy from Budden. On Saturday, the host of “The Joe Budden Podcast” responded by claiming that Logic was the bully.

“Logic is reverse bullying me lol,” he joked. He also responded with laughs after fans made jokes at Logic’s expense.
