On Monday, Joe Budden launched his State of the Culture show on, and one clip that has made waves on social media from the premiere finds Remy Ma, a co-host on the show, checking Joe about his refusal to get in the booth and respond to Eminem's Kamikaze diss with bars.

When Machine Gun Kelly's "Rap Devil" response came up in conversation, Remy was quick to turn the spotlight back to Joe. "Is that because [Eminem] dissed you and you have yet to respond because you mad pussy and you scared to death and he will flame you if you even try -- is that why?" the Bronx native challenged. 

Remy didn't seem to be too pleased with Budden's answer or lack thereof. "No, Rem, that's not why. No, I like rap where people are saying things, that's all. And Machine Gun Kelly, regardless of what you think about his actual skill set, he had a lot to say," Joe explained.

On last week's The Joe Budden Podcast, the 38-year-old left the door open to possibly returning to rap if he deemed another diss from Eminem worthy of his time.
