Days after Joe Budden & Cyn Santana celebrated the birth of their first baby boy, Complex decided to quietly part ways. Joe Budden was the host of Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” with DJ Akademiks & Nadeska. The show premiered every Mon-Fri and garnered millions of views everyday.
Joe had thoughts he might be removed when Complex started to take him off of their Friday episodes where they primarily would promote product. The news was confirmed on Twitter when DJ Whoo Kid tried to let fans know he was not replacing Joe Budden on the show and that Joe was just on Paternal leave.
I am not on paternity & they should stop using my 3 day old child to mask internal chaos, thx. https://t.co/ZRpvDDwFD1

The news shocked everyone. Fans asked the rapper to please reconsider the decision, others could not believe that Complex had let their key host go. Others were very proud and supportive of Joe Buddens decision to leave a corporate media enterprise faking to be in tune with the culture.
I didn’t realize that Budden left Everyday Struggle.

Sad truth there’s nothing I could do… I would have taken a pay cut to make it work .. I would have done anything… it’s just nothing that I could do to help situation … and I’m sadden by that.

Joe doesn’t seem too phased by the new unemployment.. Seems like Revolt has their eyes on another show.

Spotify Launching Tekashi 6ix9ine Podcast
Spotify and Complex drop the first episode of their “Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story” podcast this week
“It wasn’t just the music that got him attention, but his outspoken public persona and legal issues that overtook his career. The Infamous podcast dives into an eight-episode series which follows Daniel Hernandez’s transformation, from high school dropout working at a Brooklyn deli, trademark tattoos and rainbow hair, to a polarizing viral rapper, who beefed with anybody and everybody who stood in his way (i.e. The Game, YG, and Casanova, among others). Moreover, his affinity with courted local gang life paid a price not only for him, but anyone around him. With his closest allies now behind bars, Tekashi has to live the rest of his life, looking over his shoulder.
6ix9ine came out of nowhere to become 2018’s biggest new rapper. After a year of hits, beef, and gang violence, he was something else: hip-hop’s most famous cooperating witness. This is Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story, narrated by Angie Martinez.”
According to Complex, a new episode will consecutively drop every Tuesday for eight weeks straight and feature interviews from those who knew Tekashi most intimately.Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story will premiere on Spotify on January 28.
Gabrielle Union Fired From “America’s Got Talent” For Speaking Up About Racism & Sexism
Gabrielle Union was the #1 talent on network TV for 2019. ‘America’s Got Talent decided not to renew her contract after being the #1 talent on the show. Why?
So when i got the news that my wife was being fired—my first question was obviously why!? Iam still waiting on a good answer to that question. But if anyone knows @itsgabrielleu or have heard of her you know she’s an advocate for our community and culture.

Season 14 of America’s Got Talent ran from May to September of this year, crowning Kodi Lee as its winner. Terry Crews was introduced as this seasons new permanent host, as well as the addition of Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union as judges joining Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel at the judges table. The two replaced longtime judges Melanie Brown (Spice Girls) and model-host Heidi Klum.
On November 22nd multiple sources confirmed that Gabrielle Union & Julianne Hough would not be returning to the judges chair on their NBC hit show. According to reports from LoveBScott, the firing came as a result of Gabrielle Union speaking up about ‘problematic’ situations, including racism, sexism, and more.
A source from NBC told the outlet the following about Union’s reported firing:
“[Gabrielle’s] contract was not renewed after being the #1 talent on the show, NBC and network TV. She set the record for her Golden Buzzer. They only replace the women and blacks at Simon’s whim. She wouldn’t walk away from $12 million because she’s ‘busy.’ Based on weekly interactions on social media, by the time AGT finale aired Gabrielle was the #1 talent on network TV for 2019. Why not pick up someone’s option in extreme success?”
The source also alleges that the firing had nothing to do with either judge’s popularity–because both received more interactions than Howie Mandel, who still has a job.
“Social media engagement is the new measuring stick for talent and Simon isn’t on social media. Juliane and Gabrielle were both way higher ranked/engaged than Howie. The idea the network wants to ‘switch things up’ only applies to women and Black folks. Nick Cannon wasn’t crazy. He walked away from 8-figures over how [AGT] operates.”
Nick Cannon quit “America’s Got Talent” in 2017 after hosting 8 seasons. after being “threatened with termination by executives” over a joke he made about NBC on a Showtime comedy special.
“I was to be punished for a joke … My soul won’t allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices. Not to get too detailed but this isn’t the first time executives have attempted to ‘put me in my place’ for so-called unruly actions,” he wrote on Facebook. “I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head.”
