Joe Budden and Peter Rosenberg got into a heated back and forth because Joe didn't like the way the Hot 97 host reported on XXXTentacion's murder.
"I'm in my car balling in fucking tears," said Joe. "I'm listening to talk radio, and it's fucking Peter Rosenberg. And he interrupts this bullshit Yankee talk they're having to say, 'Hey, I know this is not a Hip Hop show, but I'm in Hip Hop, so I must report to you guys that triple X Tentacion has passed away.' And his two white co-hosts say 'Who was that?' And the first thing out your mouth was 'He was no Angel?' I took a lot of offense to that Peter Rosenberg."
Rosenberg then responded, both on Twitter and on Ebro in the Morning, and he blasted Joe for his comments.
"You could have watched the 20 minute clip, but instead you tried to play me to your audience just to get a little pop for your podcast," he said.
Rosenberg also dissed Joe by calling him a "pro podcaster" and made fun of the fact that he left music for journalism, which he said wouldn't last.
"You're finished just like your career," he stated. "One song 15 years ago."
Afterward, Ebro chimed in and tried to explain to Rosenberg why Joe was so offended.
"With the XXX story right, Joe has had issues with drugs, Joe also has been jumped and he also had accusations of beating women," he explained. "So maybe in this story he's sensitive to all that because he also has had issues in the public before."

you can feel terrible about someone being murdered and also be disgusted with things they did in life...life has grey...this story has lots of grey...it is utterly tragic but I am not putting some post calling him a king and a legend...that is not required— RosenbergTelevision (@Rosenbergradio) June 20, 2018
and if Joe Budden or other clowns now think I am not of the culture because I was honest about this and didn't act like a fan who wanted credit for praising everything about him ...oh well ...ain't the first time I've been attacked for telling the truth.— RosenbergTelevision (@Rosenbergradio) June 20, 2018
You’re not… & I’m sorry you weren’t raised to know that the time to kill a man for how he lived is not the exact second that he dies…. enjoy your day Pete. https://t.co/qroheRNYOT— Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) June 20, 2018
Save the moral lessons Joe ... you consistently treat people who have actually been good to you in real life like garbage ...I have been kind to you in spite of you being a jerk for a long time .. that time is over.. https://t.co/wItYJSJ1aY— RosenbergTelevision (@Rosenbergradio) June 20, 2018
