On the latest episode of his eponymous podcast, the outspoken host shared his thoughts on French Montana's new single "Twisted," featuring ASAP Rocky, Juicy J, and the Maryland rapper. Budden was quick to criticize Logic's verse, specifically mocking lines like "Get your ass up on the pole, let your worries go" and "If you ain’t talkin' money, you need to talk to French." After a few replays and many laughs, Budden boldly declared Bobby Tarantino a "horrible" MC.
"Logic, you are easily one of the worst rappers to ever grace a microphone, I'm gonna be honest with you," Joe said at the 50:30 mark. "I don't know what they telling you at Def Jam. I know you sold a lot of records. I know you sell out a whole bunch of tours, and I know just how successful you are. I have to be honest, you are horrible, man."
Budden's co-hosts Rory and Mal agreed Logic's "Twisted" verse was bad, but they insisted he was far from a horrible rapper.
"I don't like this verse, but he can rap," Mal insisted.

This isn't the first time Budden has criticized Logic's music. Following the release of 2017's Everybody, Budden called Logic's music unrelatable and "cringe-worthy"—specifically when it came to songs about biracial struggles.
"Logic can rap. Logic clearly makes good music. The content, though, for me, is a bit confusing," he said on an episode of Everyday Struggle. "I don't know where to take him. It's very bubblegum. It's very cookie cutter. Are you Black Lives Matter? Are you all lives matter? Are you allowed to be both? ... I don't know."
