Lil Pump has called out Joe Budden for “harassing women” — and is ready to “crash out” on the rapper-turned-podcaster.
The “Gucci Gang” hitmaker unloaded on Budden on Instagram Live on Tuesday (January 23), saying the former Slaughterhouse MC should “burn in hell” for his alleged history of sexual assault and domestic violence.
“I don’t respect a guy who fucking hits women. Fuck Joe Budden ’cause you literally harass women,” he began. “Why the fuck is you harassing women, hoe-ass n-gga?! Your ass should burn in hell, cuz. I’m ready to crash out about this shit.
“Don’t hit women, don’t harass women. What the fuck is wrong with you? Go hit a guy. Come at me, n-gga. Let’s go. Let’s crash out together. What you wanna do?”
Pump then mocked Budden over his 2003 breakout hit “Pump It Up” before threatening to “slap the fuck” out of him.
“Your only song was ‘Pump It Up,’” he said. “Lil’ weird-ass jit. I’ll slap the fuck out of you and your bald-ass head. Fuck wrong with you, jit?”
“And guess what? I’m flying to New York next week, n-gga. We can crash out,” he added, indicating he’s serious about his threat.
Lil Pump also aired out Joe Budden on his Instagram Stories, calling him “worthless” and a “drug addict.”
“Fuck joe budden 43 year old drug addict women beter ur worthless go hit a man not a woman,” he wrote in one post.
In another, Pump shared a screenshot of a Variety article with the headline: “Joe Budden Accused Of Sexual Harassment by Fellow Podcast Host Olivia Dope, Issues Apology.”
He then shared a mugshot of the rap veteran, followed by a closing message: “It’s never okay to hit women ur a piece of shit.”
It’s unclear what prompted Lil Pump’s tirade, but he previously co-signed Migos’ diss track against Budden, “Ice Tray,” back in 2017.
Podcaster Olivia Dope accused Budden of sexually harassing her during the recording of an episode of her show See, The Thing Is in 2021.
Budden was a guest on the episode, with Dope claiming he “continuously made sexual, suggestive remarks to me that made me extremely uncomfortable as well as fearful of dampening the mood if I didn’t laugh along while he made those sexual remarks to me.”
Dope called the experience “traumatizing” and “embarrassing” and described a moment where Budden suggested he and Dope should have sex numerous times.
He also allegedly asked her for “on-air hug.” When she later saw a video of their embrace, Dope said Budden was “moving his hips while he was hugging me.”
Joe Budden later issued an apology, acknowledging his words created an “upsetting environment” for Olivia Dope.
“During the conversation on the See, The Thing Is podcast I didn’t handle the topics with the sensitivity they deserved,” he said. “I recognize my words and power in that situation created an upsetting environment for Olivia. Upon reflection, both the network and I take accountability for this.”
“I apologize sincerely to Olivia, her former co-hosts, our staff and the public. In an effort to not further any trauma, the episode will be removed from all platforms. We support all women’s rights to feel comfortable and protected in the workplace. We fell short of that in this instance.”
The Joe Budden Podcast host was previously accused of physically abusing an ex-girlfriend in 2014. He allegedly slammed her head into the dashboard of a vehicle after dragging her out of a restaurant.
Budden denied the allegations, with his spokesperson saying: “Mr. Budden has fully cooperated with the investigation. Mr. Budden asks for patience as the evidence and facts unfold to demonstrate the truth of his involvement and the real events that transpired on the night in question.”
