Many cite social networking as the leading cause of fights and relationships deteriorating, but the blame goes to those who use the networks. When hip hop invaded Twitter, a new phrase called “Twitter beef” began. In 2011, Joe Budden and Chris Brown got involved in one.
Recently, Chris Brown got into a Twitter beef with a comedian. After exchanging insults, the rapper/bad boy R&B singer deleted his account. Joe Budden is a famed tweeter, getting into numerous situations. During a recent conversation with the L.A. Leakers, during his last Los Angeles trip, Joe Budden was asked about this.
Joe Budden discussed the Twitter situation, but soon focused the conversation on his upcoming album, No Love Lost. The first single is called “NBA,” which features Wiz Khalifa and French Montana.” NBA is an acronym for “never broke again,” which is a code he lives by. Before the albums, Joe Budden was a mixtape king.
Mixtapes were the only means for survival for Joe Budden not too long ago. Making an enemy out of the head of his label would cost Joe Budden. But, the mixtape hustle paid off, as interest in his stock rose, leading to his label negotiating his depature. Once Joe Budden left Def Jam, he signed with an independent record label. Releasing albums and mixtapes, Joe Budden caught the attention of several labels. In part, Joe Budden is signed to Eminem’s Shady Records. With Slaughterhouse, Budden was able to reach a wider fan base.
Speaking of mixtapes, Joe Budden discussed his A Loose Quarter mixtape, which was met with a warm reception. In addition to Wiz Khalifa and French Montana, Joe Budden revealed he has a song with Ab-Soul. Their collaboration is called “Cut From a Different Cloth” and Joe Budden says they have more music in store. With both being parts of legendary crews, the question was posed if Slaughterhouse would possibly team up with Black Hippy.
