Joe Budden fires Rory and Mal after the two fail to show up.
The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal has been on life support for the last couple of episodes following in-house disputes over equity and financial issues. The internal disputes peaked when Rory and Mal became absent for a month and were replaced by Joe’s friends Ice and Ish.
Rory and Mal returned to the show last month, but the tensions surrounding their disputes were noticeably still present. With fans showing appreciation for Ish and Ice’s change of pace. Joe created a second Podcast on Patreon with Ish and Ice as co-hosts. It heightened tensions and fans suspected The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal was on its last legs – They weren’t far off the truth.
On Wednesday morning, in a now-deleted episode. Joe Budden went on a distasteful rant that attacked Rory and Mal’s personality, before subsequently firing Rory.
“We gonna do this since Rory thinks he has so many options here, he somehow feels like he’s still running the show. He still feels like he has choices and options, he feels like he’s entitled to more. Rory, you are in breach of your contract and from this point forward you are fired and you are not welcome bacK.”
Here’s how a fan narrates some of what happened.
Joe Budden took to Twitter to confirm the pod’s end saying, “Sorry Not Sorry,” before later tweeting “Helluva run!! God bless.”
