Following the circulation of the list of “Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All-Time”, Joe Budden is trending on Twitter, with the placement of his name at number 3 on the list, which caused an uproar among social media users.
The American broadcaster, and songwriter, Budden, began rapping in 1999 and his debut studio album was released in 2003, debuting at number 8 on the Billboard 200, selling 95,000 copies within its first week. The album featured the hit single “Pump It Up“, Budden‘s most commercially successful solo single. From then on, he was signed to major record label Def Jam Recordings, until 2007 when he signed to Entertainment One Music.
Even though Joe Budden is lyrically blessed and can rap with the best of rappers, placing him on this list above Hip-Hop moguls and fan favourites such as 2Pac, Biggie, Eminem, Big Boi, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Ice Cube, and more, is causing an uproar on the internet.
