DJ Akademiks & Joe Budden explain why Joe was “fired” from Everyday Struggle in the podcast below.

* Joe warned us for a month, I thought he was bluffing

* Complex did not inform me that he was let go, above my pay grade

* Complex’s statement is very dry

* This show is big because of ME and Joe not just Joe

* Joe deserves a farewell episode

* Paternity leave excuse was not the reason Joe Budden left the show.
