One of the biggest and most infamous podcasters out there has to be Joe Budden. Budden signed a long term partnership with Spotify a couple of years ago and now the contract is almost up, but Budden has made it clear he plans to take the podcast elsewhere and that’s exactly what he’s going to do.
Joe Budden told his audience in the most recent episode of his podcast that, with seven episodes left, the show “will not be” a Spotify exclusive after Sept. 23.
According to Budden, Spotify declined to allow for him and his show’s team to take vacation days for Christmas and New Year’s Eve and attempted to offer Rolex watches instead of bonuses. We shall see where he decides to take the podcast next.
