    enjoyable show.  the parallels between this and the dumb **** I read here are so on par with todays music taste.  I think they should involve another host.  maybe a guest spot.

    Show is dope. Akademiks is corny, but he represents this new generation, so it works.

    it's moreso joe, he has no sense of balance

    he doesn't understand the replay value is higher if your counterparts shine as well as you

    Akademiks is a boss level gump so it's hard for Joe to be reigned in. I already knew after that behind the scenes video where they both had a bone to pick with the writer and when he came son threw Joe under the bus and played the brown nose role Joe was gonna come for his neck on the show every chance he got.

    Yeah Akademiks went on a rant yesterday about how he feels like he's just there to be the butt of everyone's jokes & that it's really the Joe Budden show

    ak is absolutely goofy

    but not much goofier than joe

    ak has a punchable face and joe has a punchable tone

    but to my point joe railroads the convo on his own podcast

    joe mentioned on his own pod that complex viewed ak as a threat so my theory is they are aiming to lessen aks brand by playing up his novice-ness

    up front I think ak stands to lose more money being on complex, from what I hear from many is they don't pay well but it could roll into something bigger from some other outlet but again he gets big numbers on his own

    This show is mad entertaining.

    Joe brings substance to the show but laced with a level of idiocy (to some) in his delivery.

    Hip Hop needs this but eventually to continue to push the culture we definitely need something better.

    I'd like to hear Yachty speak on these subjects again in five years. A lot of people live in the moment and think that moment is going to last forever.

    All these dudes are in 360's talking about their money, when it's less money in hip hop now. I hope he has some good people around him.

    I hope he really doesn't think all publicity is good publicity either. Too many people believe it in our social media and reality tv show era.

    I think also Joe wants him to care, because he knows he's going to be taken advantage of. He just didn't come out and say it or maybe went about it the wrong way.

    Rappers, hell musicians have been taken advantage of for six or seven decades. But he's 19.

    Just having fun and having cars, that's how labels and people take advantage of you. You think you have something, when you don't.

    Akademiks went on that o.d. long rant that's now up on YouTube talking about how Joe would never tell him to shut the f up the way he does the cohosts on his podcasts and Joe straight up YELLED it at that ***** today on everyday struggle. Ill part is dude actually got quiet afterwards. For as annoying as I find joe yelling and all that, Ak comes across as madd buns to me.

    Sadly i like joe as a rapper....but i can't take him on this show. This yachty interview made me hate him even more. Like pick the young man up stop putting him down and stop trying to trap him with bitter questions. I am not even a yachty fan at all either. Interview was wild annoying

    Interview was good, I think Joe has experience and was trying to school Yachty on the industry, hence the 360 situation, and I think Joe is still in the era of "I want to be the best lyricist out there" where Yachty just "wants to have fun," Joey just doesnt understand that. He did say he likes Yachty after talking to him, but doesn't like his music as much.

    I like the show, I caught all episodes except one. I do wish that Joe would just Chillllllll for a bit, I get that its supposed to be like First Take and Undisputed, but the other co-host still got to speak without all that shouting...I'll still watch.
