Adam22 has been questioned once more about his alleged history with young girls by Joe Budden, who has confronted him about it.

In Thursday’s newly released episode of Conversation Lovers Only on Amazon AMP, Adam22 made an appearance (March 16). The rapper then called out Adam22’s account of his connection with a lady he claims they met when she was 16 and he was in his early 20s over the course of the interview.

Adam22 recently admitted that he supposedly had a single phone chat with the 16-year-old but immediately ended the conversation when he learned she was under 18. The curators of the Instagram account @officialpervbusters uploaded two footage of their appearance on No Jumper earlier this week. In those clips, they addressed Adam22’s admission.

According to Adam22’s version of events, the two of them started a sexual connection when she was 19 years old after they had miraculously reunited. Joseph Budden argued that the connection would be improper even if this timeframe were correct.

“You said the girl was from wherever she was from, she didn’t know what she was doing; but you knew what you were doing,” Budden is heard saying in a snippet of his show. “You said, ‘I knew what I was doing, so I got away from her.’ Well… you didn’t get away from her if, by the grace of God, she ends up back in your life now that she’s OF age; you’re spending the night at her fuckin’ mom’s house. What type of white boy pervert shit… what are you talkin’ about?”

Adam22, however, claimed that he thought he had done nothing illegal because he had waited until the young woman was over 18 before pursuing her.

“What is the pervert shit about dating somebody once they are legal and of age?,” he asked. “Joe, I didn’t say a word to her for like three and a half years, and I mean that. It’s just, we just sorta ended up … I didn’t wait for anything, we just ended up reconnecting later on. So because I met her when she was underage, I shouldn’t have fucked her even though she’s of age? Well, in retrospect I wish I woulda taken that advice, it woulda made everything a lot simpler, right?”

The scrutiny surrounding this specific romantic situation has prompted the online community to review earlier accusations of sexual impropriety made against Adam22 as well as a series of tweets in which he appeared to encourage interactions between younger women and older men while also using racial slurs.

The tweets allegedly contained phrases like “My advise to any young girl out there: Sleep with much, much older men” and “Getting raped is just a part of growing up,” according to AllHipHop.

Adam22 told Joe Budden that he believed the tweets were taken out of context.

“That seems like an exaggeration,” he said. “I had some edgy, jokey tweets from like 2008-2012 or some shit that; a lot of those are pretty fucked up in retrospect. Joe, you remember Twitter back in the day and you know how fuckin’ toxic it was.”

According to Sportskeeda.com, at least two No Jumper co-hosts have left the well-known podcast in the middle of the controversy. Nevertheless, neither AD nor Trell, the cast members in question, have stated that their exit from the program was related to the incident.
