Joe Budden is 2/2 in making a splash during the first two episodes of Complex's new debate show, Everyday Struggle. On Tuesday's episode, Budden and DJ Akademiks talked about Kendrick Lamar's new album title, tracklist, and cover, who actually won the Nicki/Meek Mill breakup, and what exactly is a flop in rap.
In addition to all of that, the guys had a very open and candid discussion about Wale's career leading up to his next album, Shine, which drops on May 5. During the conversation, Budden brought up the fact that he doesn't he think he can name one bad Wale album, but that he's still waiting for him to put everything together. "The music is there, it's the other things that probably need to catch up," Budden said. Wale actually responded to Budden via Twitter, but has since deleted the tweets.
Akademiks shared similar views, but does believe that Wale has taken a step back in regards to his peers like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole. You can watch the clip on Wale above, and watch the latest episode of Everyday Struggle below.
