KXNG Crooked has posed a serious question for his former Slaughterhouse groupmate Joe Budden in an effort to uncover why his recent tirade has called for Logic‘s retirement.

On Friday (March 10), Crook took to social media to inquire as to why Logic’s music has struck such a strong nerve with the media personality.

“Why does dude hate Logic’s music so much? Serious question,” he asked of Budden, before admitting there’s a handful of rappers he’d like to see throw in the towel long before the Maryland rhymer.

“It’s some rappers I wish would retire waaaaaayyy before Logic,” he concluded — while failing to elaborate on who they were.

The inquiry comes on the heels of the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, in which Budden begged the Maryland rapper to “never step near a recording device again” following his divisive singing cover of Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day.”

“Logic, I hate to continue to make a career at your expense,” he began. “I don’t hate it, actually. I’m glad that I have a little list of you that I get to — [laughs] that’s horrible to say. One day I’m gonna grow up.”

“Logic, I beg of you, I’m pleading with you: please join me in retirement. Never step near a recording device again! Throw your phone in the ocean! Be allergic to microphones! Promise your fans nothing! Don’t go to the studio ever again! You are the worst, yo! You are really, really bad!”

Budden’s comments follow various jabs over the years, including calling Logic “one of the worst rappers to ever grace a microphone.”

Meanwhile, on Thursday (March 9), Logic seemingly responded to the stark criticism when he shared a TikTok video featuring a clip from a 2015 interview where he explained that he’s a homebody who likes to keep to himself.

“I don’t fuck with nobody at all,” he says in the clip. “It’s just me and my homies and my fiancée and my little puppy I just got and I don’t fuck with nobody. I don’t go anywhere, I don’t go to parties. I barely go outside.”

And, then again on Friday (March 10), the rapper appeared to double back, nodding to one of Budden’s not-so-favorite lyrics in which he talks about being mixed race, when he included a screen grab of Budden’s screwface on a green screen in a new music video. “Logic is a halfbreed,” he captioned the clip on Twitter.

It’s been nothing but bad blood between KXNG Crooked and Budden since the demise of their Hip Hop supergroup Slaughterhouse — consisting of Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, KXNG Crooked and Royce Da 5’9″ — after dropping just two studio albums. A happening KXNG Crooked once alleged was the result of Budden’s bad business.

“We started Slaughterhouse in the early days waiting on Joe [Budden],” he shared during an episode of The Bootleg Kev Podcast, early last year. “When we first got our deal with Shady, we had a song called ‘Session One’ on one of Em’s projects. He was trying to put the group on one of his projects. I think it was a bonus cut or something on the albums. So we did ‘Session One,’ and all the Slaughterhouse fans know Joe Budden isn’t on ‘Session One.’

“Joe was signed to another label and caught up in some paperwork. They called over to Shady like, ‘Hey we have him under contract, you have to get a clearance from us to have him appear on the song.’ All of us supposedly free agents to sign this deal with Shady, and come to find out Joe was on the paperwork, he said that they forged his signature and that wasn’t him.”

He added: “The group was put on the shelf for a minute while he was fighting amalgam digital label in court, and we were waiting on Joe because we couldn’t move forward, and that took months.”
