The Joe Budden Podcast will no longer be on Spotify as of September, because Joe's contract will end with the company, and they couldn't agree on financial terms.
Joe said that he was being "paid the least in my most valuable asset" from Spotify, and he's been blasting them for months now.
But Charlamagne tha God said that it's Joe's fault that he isn't being offered top- dollar and it has to do with his negotiation skills.

“It sounds to me like Joe Budden is a person who knows his worth but doesn’t know how to properly negotiate it, 'cause if you keep doing deals with various corporations and you keep getting trash-ass deals, that’s on you," said The Breakfast Club Host. “Also, too, when I heard Joe comparing his show to like Spotify signing Gimlet for hundreds of millions and The Ringer for hundreds of millions and Parcast for hundreds of millions, I think it’s very important to note that they got that money from Spotify because they are actual networks with tons of IP."
"Those networks have a bunch of shows and other content, a bunch of staff that knows how to make those shows," he added. "You can’t compare your one show to a whole network ... If you keep having the same issues with various companies, because it was the same thing at Complex, it's probably not them. It's probably you, Joe."
Joe responded to Charlamagne on Twitter
Charlamagne, Joe Budden is a network. We’ll talk later.— Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) August 27, 2020
Do you agree with Charlamagne?
