Joe Budden & The World’s Greatest Rebrand

So, it’s no secret that I’m a Joe Budden fan, son. Look, I’ve written multiple articles making that exact point, man. However, I must admit, this version of Budden is WAY better than any previous incarnation, fam. I mean, for once, everything seems like it’s going well for him, bruh. Shit, based on his music alone, we know that he’s gone through copious amounts of shenanigans. But, after all of the tomfoolery and episodes of “Joe being Joe,” he finally seems to be in a good space, folks. With that being said, I have to salute Joe Budden for one of the greatest rebrands in history.

Now, let’s start with the obvious, son. Last night, at a live taping of The Joe Budden Podcast, he proposed to Cyn Santana, his girlfriend and the mother of his son, Lexington Budden. All I know is, for a dude who wrote the “Ordinary Love Shit” series, this is a fucking miracle, man. On the real, we’ve publicly seen him in tumultuous unions with Tahiry Jose, Esther Baxter and Kaylin Garcia. So, to actually see him prosper in a relationship is a welcome change of pace, fam. In any case, between his engagement, the success of his podcast AND his improved relationship with Trey Budden, his oldest son, Joe is living the fucking life, bruh. Real talk, how can anybody hate, brethren?

In the end, yeah, I’m just happy for one of my favorite artists, son. Ultimately, I don’t care if he never spits another bar again. By and by, if his lifestyle is working for him, then I want him to just do that. At the end of the day, he doesn’t need to prove he can rap anymore. His has an entire discography that can speak for him, man. That is all. LC out.

Did Joe Budden Really Leave ‘Everyday Struggle’?

So, as a longtime Joe Budden fan, I can’t say that I’m surprised, son. I mean, keeping it a buck, I’m shocked that his tenure on Everyday Struggle lasted this long, man. In any case, what is the show going to do without him, fam? Shit, he was basically the reason why anyone paid attention to Complex‘s show, bruh. All I know is, I’m going to miss his various kerfuffles and beefs with artists all around the industry.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Budden decided to leave the show he co-founded. Now, I’m not sure about all of the details (because I haven’t listened to the latest Joe Budden Podcast episode yet), but it appears that it all came down to money, son. Apparently, Budden and Complex couldn’t reach an agreement and Joey chose to walk. All in all, fans of the show knew something was up because Budden missed a couple of episodes in a row.

Now, during his absence, Complex tried to play it off like Budden was missing shows because of his newborn child with Cyn Santana. However; Joey took to Twitter and quickly refuted those claims, saying that he “knows [his] worth” and that “internal chaos” was responsible. All I can say is, Everyday Struggle is going to struggle everyday without Budden. Side bar, does everyone see what I did there? Man, I really make myself laugh, fam.

Anyway, Joe had ALL of the hot takes on the show and HE’S the one who kept eyes on the program. Look, how many artists did he piss off in the process, bruh? Shit, Migos and Lil Yachty JUST released a diss track because of Joey’s comments. I guess after all of their bickering, they thought this was the best way to get back at Joe. Listen, for someone who’s supposed to be “irrelevant,” he sure has a lot of people talking, son. On the real, irrelevant folks don’t cause this much traffic, man. It just is what it is, fam.

In the end, this probably won’t have much of an impact on Budden. Ultimately, I think Complex is taking an L with this move, bruh. By and by, I don’t think the show is going to end, but it damn sure won’t be as entertaining, son. At the end of the day, people like me will still be around whenever Joe decides to resurface with a new endeavor. In addition, the Joe Budden Podcast is still moving in these streets, so I’m sure he’ll be fine, man. Keeping it a buck, I’m just here for the fuckery, fam. That is all. LC out.
