MacG has bashed US podcaster Joe Budden. The Mzansi podcaster was responding to Joe's comments following MacG and Ari Lennox's dramatic interview.
After apologising for all the way he ambushed Ari during their interview, MacG threw heavy shade in the direction of the American rapper-turned-podcaster.
Their beef started when Joe labelled MacG a "shock jock", which left him hot under the collar. In an interview on Higher Learning Podcast with Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay, the South African media personality left a message for Joe, reports ZAlebs.
"Please tell Joe Budden I am not a shock jock dawg, I am a broadcaster, I've been doing this longer than him."
