Joe Budden Jumps Off

I’m starting to think that Joe Budden is an accessory to his webcam’s computer instead of the more commonplace variation. Kinda like how the suit really owns Chopper and drives the rented Lamborghini by itself.

This weekend Joe Budden and The Neverending Story (his perpetually webcasted home life) took the turn anyone could have seen coming. After consistent self-etherization for promotion’s sake yielded little tangible return—i.e., like 17 Slaughterhouse albums sold—Budden and his bartender/booty model long-term jumpoff are no more.

Some who follow Joe Budden’s life and online career as if it were their own have said the video is from an old break up. In which case, why put it out now? Why ever use something like that as a promotional tool? Do musicians and recording artists really believe such things translate to increased sales and fan base?

I watch a lot of online niggardry and iCoonery. The shit never makes me want to investigate a nigga’s music farther. In fact, it often unfairly does the opposite, as my entertainment starts and ends with me laughing at buffoonish behavior.

A live web stream into something relevant to a nigga’s music career like a studio session, performance, public appearance or moment of inspiration would be beneficial to your music fans. Unless Budden is trying to get himself cast on a reality show, this shit he’s been doing isn’t helpful.

But still, it must be done.

Besides, whether this video is old or new isn’t as much of interest to me as determining whether or not it’s genuine. How the fuck is Joe Budden going to be filming and editing his own breakup? He got Tahiry on this fucking video lookin like Carla from Scrubs goin off on Turk about going to the strip club with J.D. instead of speaking at the High Yeller Surgreons conference or some shit.

Long story short: I don’t know what the fuck I’m looking at when I watch rapper UStreams. Well, that’s not true. I see the innocence, ignorance and quiet internal defiance of a young Mr. Bojangles when I watch Soulja Boy’s shit. But other than that, I can’t call it.

The scary part is, I don’t think Joe can anymore either.

If Budden is as sad as he looks in the video where he’s listening to what sounds like a Tahiry breakup song, hopefully it’s because he understands the part digital fame-whoring has played in the creation of such a rough few months.

Either that or Budden just looks as such when he’s writing the sketches for his live-action improvised spitcom.

Questions? Comments? Requests? Let them other niggas get the name. Skip the fame. ron@ronmexicocity.com

Seriously. Someone not named Panasonic should be keeping an eye on this man for a while.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I’d say it yielded VERY tangible return, in the sense that Joe’s antics actually refrained some people from checking SH. It had the opposite effect of what publicity stunt is supposed to be.

    Like seeing Usain Bolt run 100m in 8 secs, but backwards………..

    Ha…excellent work. I especially appreciated the Carla/Turk reference.

    I know it will not happen but after seeing Marbury and Budden completely destroy themselves, others should really take note.

    You have people like Dre who stay in the shadows and their presence almost seems bigger through their absence.

    Joey, I love the Slaughterhouse album but everything in moderation, my dude. Just because it’s called a video diary doesn’t mean you have to put every single thought into it…it’s not like the worst thing that could happen your older brother (sister?) finding it…

    • DetroitDraper

      Joey obviously does’nt practice his 48 laws…

      MAYN HOL’UP

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    The funny thing about the video is the background cats patting Joey on the back saying “It’s gonna be alright”, while practically laughing .behind his back.

    I still say the breakup song(from what I heard) would be a good ass club song. He should put it out

    SMH

    You can’t tell Budden nothing.

    “good sex makes for bad amnesia.” realist line of Joe Budden’s carer. other than that there was NO POINT to that 2nd video. he literally just sat there for 4 and a half minutes with the loser face. WTF Joe?

      Joe didn’t record it though.. A couple other dudes were on his live stream while they were recording ish and then he went on and someone watching the actual stream recorded it like a lame, lmao.

    i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again. niggas and technology just don’t mix, it’s like bleach and ammonia, the stench will knock you the fuck out.

    “I see the innocence, ignorance and quiet internal defiance of a young Mr. Bojangles when I watch Soulja Boy’s shit.”

    i see a young steppin fetchit.

    I’ve just come to the conclusion that something is actually wrong with that nigga. Like Method Man said, he’s actually crazy. Not the type of crazy that makes niggas not want to fight you in elementary school, but the kind that gets you on the little bus and classes on a separate hallway or in the basement or some shit.

    This dude is walking proof that the saying, “any publicity is good publicity” is some bullshit – just like I always thought

    • BIGNAT

      joe love the punishment he had problems with gloria velez as well. this guy likes his business out there gives people a reason to want to talk to him

  • Apollo Moses

    Good post…I figure after the SH numbers he went for the spirit bomb… dramatically ending it with the only promo tool that garnered attention…Tahiry…shawty wasteline bangin like a bassline…Ron Mex you have a more important mission now bruh the NP-MVP of the guest blogs…shelled.

  • capcobra

    it’s some online niggardry and iCoonery going on over in the guest blog.

  • RiZob

    Scrubs is that shit! i watch that shit 24/7! Props for that is…Turk Turkelton…LOL

  • 3rd eye clear

    the whole time i’m watching and thinking, somebody need to call his folks and tell em come get this boy!

  • BIGNAT

    the first video was funny as hell the second one was dumb i cut it off after 2 minutes. nigga just looking at the screen like someone shot his dog. joe fucked up and instead of trying to console his chick he tried to make her seem dumb and crazy. she was not going for that shit he lucky she didn’t cut him mwhahahhahaha

    • Silly Willy

      “…shit he lucky she didn’t cut him ”
      ^^^^^^^^^^

      Joe’s tryin hard to get Nas’d the fuck out…

    Joe Budden’s emotional instability is going to be the topic of Steve Harvey’s next book; “Think Like A Woman, Act Like A Rapper”.

  • ri067953

    Yo, it’s all these fools crying out for attention like bitches. These are the same dudes who twitter and facebook every time they take a shit or brush their teeth. They want a reaction so that they can feel better about themselves. Most of the time, that type of behavior blows up in your face

    They need to man the fuck up and stop being attention whores. A real man handles his business discretly, not out in public like a little bitch.

    I never bothered to follow their love story and I still won’t. But I support the continued self-etherization of wannabe webstars/former emcees.

    It can only help the music.

    But in all honestly, this has all been great promo for Joe..think about it, Joe made his Broad “Famous”,now, how many rappers have that ability?!
