Logic says Joe Budden’s words “make people want to kill themselves”

Published

Logic and Joe Budden

Logic has spoken out about the harsh criticism he’s received over the years from rapper-turned-podcast host Joe Budden.

Budden, who has taken aim at Logic on a number of platforms, once described him as “easily one of the worst rappers to ever grace a microphone” on an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast.

Last month, Budden discussed Logic’s recent retirement announcement, saying that the Def Jam rapper “should’ve retired a long time ago.”

It came after Logic announced he would be retiring from music following the release of his latest album, ‘No Pressure’, which arrived on July 26.

Budden has since apologised. “I’m sorry man,” he said on the latest episode of his podcast. “Last week, I came in here feeling pretty tumultuous. Fresh out of Twitter jail, unable to properly read the room. And just hating myself and life, honestly. Unfortunately, I projected some of that onto you, Log. And for that, I want to apologise.”

Now, speaking in a new interview, Logic discussed his new album, mental health, social media, and Budden’s criticism of him.

“He doesn’t like me for whatever reason,” Logic told Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg. “He wants to say I’m not Black enough, I’m not good enough. He’s a person who’s led to part of my depression, some of my darkest spaces,” said Logic around the 24 minute mark in the clip below. “Your words, they make people want to kill themselves bro.”

Logic mentioned that he hasn’t seen Budden’s views on ‘No Pressure’ or his apology because he’s grown past the stage where it affects him.

You can watch the interview below:

Last week, Logic shared a final farewell with his fans on social media, describing his career as an “incredible journey.”

Meanwhile, Logic has confirmed that he has signed an exclusive seven-figure deal with streaming giant, Twitch.

The Maryland rapper broke the news in an exclusive interview with The Verge, calling it the perfect fit for the self-professed nerd. “I’m not this rapper guy, man,” he said. “I’m just a nerd. I love video games. I’m blessed enough to have millions of fans and followers. So it is a great partnership.”

“I think it’s a powerful platform that allows me to connect with my fans in the best way possible. And the safest way possible for someone in my position,” he added, referring to Twitch’s moderation system that would block any unwanted hate.

Brian May has shared shocking pictures and a passionate message online for his fans. The Queen legend had a traumatic weekend and, clearly still upset, wrote, “to see this happen in my own home county has been shocking and traumatic.” Major forest fires engulfed the area around his Surrey home and the star was worried about the threat to his home and studio and all “the fond relics of my life.” He warned “the danger is not over.”

The wildfire erupted on Cobham Common on Friday. Surrey Fire and Rescue Service said the outbreak was reported at 12.30pm and six fire engines were dispatched. The smoke was visible for miles and up to ten hectares were alight, with the fire already starting to spread.

Over 100 local residents were evacuated from their homes. Sunningdale Golf Course was evacuated in the middle of a tournament.The fire spread to rail tracks and trains between Reading and London were suspended.

Brian May was at home at the time and has spoken of his fears, his devastating at seeing the destruction afterwards and his anger at the recent cuts to the fire service.

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE BRIAN MAY’S PICTURES AND MESSAGE

May wrote: “I never imagined it could happen here in leafy, and normally damp, Surrey, England.

“We supported the fight against the immense fires in Australia, and watched sadly as fires ravaged California, but to see this happen in my own home county has been shocking and traumatic.

“These pictures show Anne Brummer and I this afternoon, surveying the forest fire which is still smouldering less than a mile from my own house and studio, and the fond relics of my entire life. 

“Today we were able to begin to thank the amazing firefighters who risked their lives to contain this huge and treacherous wild furnace on the heath land of Sunningdale Golf Course – which actually adjoins my property.

“Yesterday, I was rescuing as many precious things from my house as was practicable, under threat of the whole thing going up in flames, but praying that the horror would not happen. Today my prayers were answered – the fire is under control, but the danger is not over.

“While this dry heatwave lasts there is still a massive risk of a flare-up leading to disaster.

One Direction REUNION: Odds on band reforming improve following anniversary event

Last month, Coral gave Zayn a healthy 5/4 on returning to One Direction.

If this wasn’t enough of a tease, fans were also given odds on the band dropping a new album.

Considering everyone has been stuck indoors this year due to the lockdown, it would make sense for them to have written and recorded a brand new album.

But, now that all of the team have taken on solo careers, the music could be drastically different.

Johnny Cash wife: Who was Johnny Cash’s first wife? When did he marry June Carter?

Published

Johnny Cash’s music is iconic in the country and folk worlds. Along with his wife, June Carter, he made some incredible music, as well as on his own. Before June became his wife, however, Johnny was married to someone else, with whom he had children.

Who was Johnny Cash’s first wife?

Johnny Cash’s first wife was called Vivian Liberto, and their meeting was rather adorable.

According to Robert Hilburn’s 2013 biography Johnny Cash: The Life, Johnny and Vivian met in July 1951, when he and a friend in the Air Force stopped by a local skating rink.

He saw Vivian and, in the biography, is said to have described her as “the prettiest girl he had ever seen.”

After his return from abroad, Johnny and Vivian married on August 7, 1954, at St. Ann Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas, despite Johnny being a protestant.

However, their relationship was not to continue in such harmonious terms.

In 1961 the family moved to California, however, this and Johnny’s career started to cause the family unit to break down.

Despite this, the couple had four daughters: Rosanne, Kathy, Cindy, and Tara, but divorced in 1966 after 12 years of marriage.

DON’T MISS

Vivian eventually filed for divorce in 1966, claiming Johnny’s constant tour, drug and alcohol abuse and run-ins with the law were behind their split, and she gained full custody of the children.

While this has not been suggested as the reason for their divorce, Johnny had, sometime before, met his long-term love, June Carter.

While married to Vivian, Johnny met June backstage at the Grand Ole Opry, in 1955.

They started touring together with Johnny as a solo artist while June was part of The Carter Family in the early 1960s, and became very close.

On February 22, 1968, which was 13 years after they met and two years after his marriage split, Johnny proposed during a live performance in Ontario.

The couple married on March 1, 1968, in Kentucky, and had their only child together, John, on March 3, 1970.

Johnny also became step-father to June’s daughters from her first two marriages, Carlene and Rosie, who lived with the family.

The couple continued to work and tour together for years, right up until June’s death in May 2003.

Johnny died four months later in September 2003.
