Eminem and Joe Budden were once apart of the hip hop collective called “Slaughterhouse”. Due to a disagreement in recent years and retiring from hip hop, Joe Budden and Eminem have not seen eye to eye. So it came as no surprise that Joe Budden was not one of the Slaughterhouse members featured on the latest album from Slim Shady entitled “Music To Be Murdered By”. There are aspects on the album that clearly take aim at Budden, including the “Traitor Joe” lyric, but Joe Budden is not entertaining a back and forth as he suggests they just put their differences to the side during a segment on his last podcast.
“Lock It Up” bar in which Em spits “Try’na save at Kroger, so why would I give a fuck about back-stabbin’ Trader Joe for?”, Budden had the following to note:
“Trader Joe, Trader Joe, Trader Joe — that’s hurtful,” he said. “That’s not right! That’s offensive, man. Trader Joe? I’m Joe. You’re telling me Joe is a traitor? The same way I feel like [Eminem] should stop dissing Lord Jamar, he should stop dissing me. Hey, whatever we had, that exchange when you did all the [interviews with Sway], and whenever I said whatever I said on the pod, it’s a moment in time. We had our exchange. It’s over. In 2020, I can’t harbor negativity not only towards one of the best rappers, but somebody I’m not angry at. That’s what I gotta stop doin’. I don’t be mad at the people I come in and kill. There’s no hostility after that.”
