Joe Budden is quite a controversial individual. While speaking on his podcast, he has conflicts with many artists. On a recent episode of the podcast, Budden and his co-hosts were naming battle rappers that would be on a Mt.Rushmore for battle rappers, he was shocked when Charlie Clips name was brought up.
“Clips don’t go on no f*ckin’ Mt. Rushmore,” Budden said. “He was hot for a year and a half and fell off. That’s a fact.” He also stated, “Clips can’t go up there. I don’t know what you are talking about. There is no way in God’s green earth can Clips can go on the Mt. Rushmore of Battle Rap.”
Charlie Clips addressed his name being discussed, “Joe Anthony Budden, what’s goin’ on?” he said, stating that a fan DM’d him the podcast so he felt the need to address what was said. He brought up the fact that he has been a consistent factor in the battle rap community since 2009.
“There’s too much aggression from you describing my career man,” he said. Clips then shared that he decided to Google Budden’s name saying, “They don’t even have you as a rapper no more. They have you as an American podcaster…So this is how I look at it. If I fell off and don’t deserve to be on the Mt. Rushmore and was only hot for a year and a half, and you’re no longer a rapper…Since you’re not getting respect as a lyricist and you’re only getting respect as a podcaster, how about we both just get in the f*cking ring. Since you think that I fell off and don’t deserve to be in the Mt. Rushmore. I bet you they carve my face right up there after I do what I do to you.”
“We both don’t need to battle. I am on TV. You are on TV, sometimes,” Clips added. “But I haven’t felt like this in a while. Now I want to battle. So, if you want to see the old Charlie Clips, get in the f*cking ring. If not, ‘pump, pump, pump it up.'”
