Nearly five years after their beef, Joe Budden and DJ Akademiks have made amends. Akademiks announced that he and Budden will be on each other’s podcasts later this week on Twitter. “Reunited @JoeBudden,” Akademiks wrote with three heart emoji’s over a clip of the upcoming episode. “Tune into our both podcasts in the next week or so.”

Everyday Struggle 

Budden and Akademiks served as co-hosts on the Complex series Everyday Struggle from 2017 to 2018. Budden left unexpectedly and was replaced with Wyano. The change caused ratings for the show to fall and led to its cancellation.

In a Twitch live stream shortly after the show was canceled, Akademiks noted his suspension was potentially caused by calling Chrissy Teigen a “bitch” as well as his feud with Freddie Gibbs.

“It was a very weird moment with the Chrissy Teigen thing, but it wasn’t only that,” he said at the time. “I received calls from them about other content that they felt I probably shouldn’t been engaged in. He later went on to say “I felt like it was a spit in the face when Complex was trying to tell me I should ‘shut the fuck up’ … and they awarded some sort of award to Freddie Gibbs, even though he was saying he couldn’t wait ’til I die so he could spit on my casket. This is what I also said about Everyday Struggle. Joe [Budden] once said it, too, but I also agree: You don’t hire a controversial figure to not have controversy.”

The show was successful among hip-hop fans, generating millions of views through its three-and-a-half-year run. Guests on the show included 21 Savage, Vince Staples, 2 Chainz, Jeezy, SZA, Erykah Badu and Tory Lanez. It also brought some heated debates between guests including the viral videos between Budden and Lil Yachty and Migos. Akademiks also got into it with rapper Young Dolph about turning down a $22 million dollar deal as well as Vic Mensa.
