It has hardly been a full 48 hours since Joe Budden’s departure from Everyday Struggle was made public and it looks like Joe Budden has already found a new show on his hands.
On December 20th, the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast was released on Soundcloud and Budden spent the majority of his time on the air spilling the beans about what went wrong regarding his relationship with Complex. Around the same time frame, Charlamagne tha God uploaded this post on his Instagram promoting an upcoming Revolt TV special called This Year Was Dope/Trash.
It has been well documented that Joe Budden and Charlamagne tha God have had something of a friendly competition–or competitive rivalry, depending on how you look at it–over the course of these last few years. The two have spewed venom in each other’s direction whenever one mentions the other in their respective interviews, and they have even showed up on each other’s podcasts to share witty banter and heated debate. At the end of it all, it seems like the two are able to find some special brand of respect towards each other and it looks like with this new deal for Revolt TV, the two hope to extend that respect by making money together.
Judging by the trailer, This Year Was Dope/Trash is going to be a year-end wrap up where the two sit down and talk about everything noteworthy that happened in the music industry in 2017; Charlamagne taking the more optimistic approach to recapping the year and Joe Budden being more, well, like Joe Budden.
A date wasn’t given for the release of the show other than “Coming Soon.” More than anything else, we are left wondering whether or not the onscreen partnership of Charlamagne and Joe Budden will extend to anything further than just a one-off special. In any case, if their pair’s chemistry is anything like their previous work together, This Year Was Dope/Trash will surely be an entertaining hour of television whenever it drops.
