Joe Budden has a lot to say when it comes to music. The rapper and podcast host is always making headlines for his remarks. In a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, he discussed Ye’s new album.

Just like everyone one else, Budden is admittedly “excited” about the album. However, he thinks the combination of executive producer Future and maestro Ye will show “toxic” results. Future serves as executive producer on Donda 2. Ye is also working with Marilyn Manson on the project.

During the conversation, Budden and his co-hosts joked about the likelihood of the album actually arriving on February 22, its scheduled release date. From then on, Budden explained why he felt Kanye couldn’t hold on to the project for too long. Joe sees the project Kanye telling his side of the story, calling it a rebuttal.

I think this is the most toxic shit in the universe. And for it to be as impactful as the most toxic shit in the universe, it has to be somewhat near real-time. I think this is a counter and a rebuttal. I don’t think his plan was to drop so early. That’s an assumption. But he can’t hold this too long. I think he’s been looking at what he deems to be a movie and a script, and he’s been trying to reply the best he could, but he’s a musician. So, he’s going to reply in music, and he’s going to get the “toxicist [sic] of the toxic kings.

Joe Budden then questioned why a replica of Kanye’s childhood home was on fire in the album announcement, asking, “Was there a gas leak? There’s gonna be some toxic bars on that muthaf**ka.” It seems like the podcaster is riding the toxic train he brought up Charlamagne Tha God’s assertion Kanye is a “hypocrite.”

“I thought Kanye’s bar to Pete was corny as hell,” he said. “What happened to Jesus? Charlamagne said during an episode of The Breakfast Club last month. Joe Budden discussed Ye’s flaming remarks for Pete Davidson following his religious background. At the end of the day, we will never know what Donda 2 is really like until it finally drops later this month. Ye even put his down down to concentrate on the album.
