The controversial hip-hop podcaster appeared as Minaj's guest during Monday's broadcast (August 12) to fill in last-minute for her "Hot Girl Summer" partner in crime Megan Thee Stallion. In case you didn't know, the "Megatron" rapper has had contention with the 38-year-old ever since he accused her of taking drugs and "popping pills" last year while working on her latest album Queen.
"Your entire last album did that. Your past is littered with it," Joe restated during the broadcast. "Who gives a f--k what she pop? But don't sit here and act like you've never popped a pill."
Rightfully offended by the allegation, the 36-year-old emcee quickly went from 0 to 100. “I never said that you dumb f--k! Cut his f--king mic since you wanna be dumb!" Minaj shouted at Budden. "Are you that f--king dumb?"
"You like tearing down women when they can't defend themselves," she continued before cueing producers to mute Budden's mic entirely, ending the argument altogether. “You like tearing down women when you can try to end their career because you’re lowkey jealous of their success.”
The drama didn't stop there, unfortunately.
Later, Budden doubled-down on his insults by claiming Megan and Minaj linking up over Instagram Live for their spontaneous team-up was a "pre-planned" ploy and not the on-the-spot surprise it was marketed as, which the she also denied.
"I went on Live to discuss the Megatron winners, and when I was on there I saw a lot of people telling me to go on with Megan," she explained. "She basically hinted at the fact she wanted me on the song. When we got off the Live I spoke with [Megan's team]."
