Fans roast Joe Budden for Isaiah Rashad interview questions


There was a lot of excitement this week when Joe Budden promoted his now-released interview with Isaiah Rashad, Rashad’s first public interview since a sex tape leaked in February revealing he may be gay. . The house is burning the artist talked about it in his performance at Coachella, but of his own volition. Joe Budden questioned the front tape and how Rashad identifies, to which the TDE rapper replied that he was “sexually fluid”. Budden appeared not to understand what that meant and assumed the 31-year-old was not monogamous before Isaiah provided clarification. Needless to say, the internet wasn’t happy with artist Budden after seeing this.

Beyond the sexual preference implications here, people just feel like Isaiah doesn’t need to talk about it at all. This event has forced viewers to once again wonder why Budden and other former rappers are allowed to operate in a journalistic capacity. The lines between journalists and media personalities have blurred over the years as rappers and celebrities with big platforms have brought their fanbases into the podcasting game, quickly outpacing independent creators who were doing it long before them. This phenomenon isn’t going to stop anytime soon, nor are the outspoken journalists who think they’ll handle these opportunities far more carefully than those who end up getting them.
