Joe Budden Has Been Fired From ‘Everyday Struggle’ And The Internet Is Not Happy About It

Joe Budden, who welcomed a baby boy with Cyn Santana last week, has now found himself without a job! 

Rumors that Joe had either gotten fired or quit the show began swirling this week when DJ Whoo Kid took over Budden's hosting duties on an episode.

Budden's cryptic tweets about "internal chaos" raised eyebrows with fans and now Complex has confirmed the rapper will not be a host on the show anymore.

Joe's contract with "Everyday Struggle" was up and it appears they couldn't see eye-to-eye. 


Some fans initially speculated that Joe was on paternity leave. His replacement, DJ Whoo Kid, stated that was the case on Twitter. However, Budden shut that down quickly!

DJ Whoo Kid tweeted, "Joe Budden will be back.  He's on baby duties this week. I'm not taking his spot on @EverdayStrugg lol. Holy [expletive]. I'm just passing thru this week. Sheesh. Calm the [expletive] down. Lol. And congrats to Joe on his newborn son."

Congrats to #JoeBudden and #CynSantana on their new 👶🏻💙bundle of joy! #Artist #Host #EverydayStruggle #Rapper #Family #RealityTvStar #Celeb #BabyBoy #Newborn #TheCrowdUpdater #TCU #Blog #Blogger #Philadelphia #Philly

Budden responded by writing, "I am not on paternity & they should stop using my 3 day old child to mask internal chaos, thx."


Joe went on to tweet, "Yeah nah...Creators will be properly acknowledged & compensated, or they won't create...integrity."


Joe responded to a tweet from a fan asking him not to leave "Everyday Struggle." He tweeted in response, "I created that show...I'll create another if need be...& another & another...it's when u CAN'T create that you move WITHOUT integrity."


Budden appeared to confirm he was fired, tweeting, "They didn't give me a proper goodbye either. INJUSTICE!!!"


It wasn't long before Complex confirmed that Budden has officially departed from the show. "Joe Budden is not continuing as a host on "Everyday Struggle" in 2018," Complex stated. "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."


"Everyday Struggle" debuted in April and the morning show had a huge fan following. Joe starred on the show, along with co-hosts Nadeska Alexis, and DJ Akademiks.
