So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I always say that I’m going to keep a post short. But, I never do, man. Anyway, I’m going to try my hardest to keep my word today. The fact is, I’m only here to give Joe Budden his flowers for his rapping prowess, fam. Ok, yeah, I know it’s easy to make fun of Budden. Shit, he spends a great deal of time making fun of himself. However, one thing can never be debated, bruh: Joe Budden can rap his ass off.
Ok, for those who missed it, a list started circulated around the internet that got people up in arms. So, a podcast named The Brew Podcast put out a list of their top 50 rappers of all time. Moving on, the list had a lot of familiar faces that folks would be used to. But, shit took a turn when people saw who was listed in the number three spot. Now, as I’m sure everyone has figured out by now, the podcast listed Budden as the third greatest rapper in history. From there, social media lost its fucking mind, son.
Look, as soon as people got wind of this list, Budden was slandered to the mountaintop, man. I mean, damn near everybody tried to make the argument that Budden is trash as a rapper. The thing is, I can guarantee that 99% of the people who are shitting on him aren’t familiar with his catalog at all. Frankly, they only know about the reality TV star, who’s constantly having problems with women and has beefed with close to every rapper in the industry. In my eyes, all of Budden’s shenanigans have tainted the perception of his music, fam. Thankfully, I’m here to give folks a crash course, bruh.
Now, everyone can listen to some of my favorite Joe Budden songs below. In the end, do I think he’s the third best rapper of all time? Fuck no, son! That’s just ridiculous. But, his placement on that podcast’s list shouldn’t take away from the fact that he is one of the nicest emcees to ever do it. By and by, his detractors should actually know about the music they’re slandering before they utter a word, man. At the end of the day, don’t ever disrespect Joe Budden’s rapping ability, fam. That is all. LC out.
