Complex has confirmed that Joe Budden will no longer be a part of Everyday Struggle.
For the last couple of days, Budden has been suggesting on Twitter that his contract had expired and he wasn't necessarily coming back.
"Joe Budden is not continuing as a host on Everyday Struggle in 2018," Complex told Billboard. "The show will be back in the New Year with all new episodes and guests. We wish Joe all the best and thank him for a great 2017. We love and respect him; we believe he's terrific but the reality is we couldn't reach an agreement."
Complex plans on having special guest hosts join DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis in the near future and haven't revealed any plans for a permanent Budden replacement.
Budden had been the star of the show since it launched in April, with his strong opinions and on-air disagreements with artists like Lil Yachty and Migos quickly elevating Everyday Struggle to the level of more established morning shows like The Breakfast Club and Ebro in The Morning.
Budden wanted to get paid for that, and it seems Complex didn't want to pay him what he wanted.
We'll see if the show can succeed without him. And we'll see what Budden does next.
