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.

Joe Budden For The Win!

So, it’s no secret that I’m a Joe Budden fan, son. I mean, I’ve already written about that on this very site, man. Shit, even before The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal, I was there for his debut album and entire Mood Muzik series. In any case, after all of these years, it’s super dope to see what he’s been able to accomplish with his podcast, fam. As of right now, I just hope that his new deal with Spotify works out for the best. All I know is, Budden might have the best rebrand in history, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Budden just announced that he teamed up with Spotify to distribute his podcast. Now, according to the details, the show will be released exclusively through the streaming site, but will remain free for the listeners. Furthermore, Budden will now release two episodes per week, but still update his YouTube channel with content. Lastly, all of these changes will take place in September.

Keeping it a buck, I don’t know what else to say, son. Hell, this is just a dope ass move for Budden, Rory and Mal. Listen, I’ve been tuned into the podcast from the beginning (word to Marisa Mendez). So, I’ve seen the show through all of its incarnations, man. On the real, Budden’s podcast and The Joe Rogan Experience are my favorite joints to listen to, fam. With that being said, it’s about damn time that Budden and company got some recognition, bruh.

In the end, shout-out to Joe Budden for staying the course, son. Ultimately, he’s done AND been through a lot of bullshit along the way. Needless to say, he’s found a way to make it all work in the end. Shit, the New York Times just likened him to Howard Stern, but it wasn’t necessary, man. At the end of the day, Budden’s crazy ass is finally getting acknowledgement for being himself. That is all. LC out.
