LINK: Joe Budden Talks Jay-Z With Rhapsody

In a new interview with Rhapsody, New Jersey rapper Joe Budden talks about everything from being a singer-turned-rapper to his comments about Saigon. He also explains his feelings about Jay-Z that led him to record his recent diss song “Talk 2 Em” from Mood Muzik III. Check out this juicy excerpt:

“Talk 2 Em’” seems to be getting the most attention from people that have heard Mood Muzik 3. Why did you decide to go at Jay-Z?
Joe Budden: That’s exactly how I felt. On Mood Muzik, the stage is all Joe Budden so I get to do exactly what I want. It was disrespectful, but it was a diss with a point: Stop rapping. Hang it up. You’re getting paid to be a president. Be a president. We loved you as a rapper. One of the best to ever do it. Now it’s time to do some other things.

Do you really hate “Roc Boys”?
The video is amazing. I’m just not feeling the song at all.

Do you really think the new generation is gonna remember Jay as Michael Jordan getting crossed by Allen Iverson?
If you look at it today, a lot of these younger people didn’t experience Reasonable Doubt, In My Lifetime, Vol. 1, and the things that people my age have come to love Jay for. The younger generation is like, eh, f*ck it, whatever. They don’t really respect it. I don’t think he puts that fear in any artists like he once did. It’s like Shaquille O’Neal now. Shaq was one of the most dominant people to ever play. Nowadays, he’s still worth something, but it’s just not the same. Everybody is calling American Gangster a concept album. It’s a Jay-Z album. He’s talking about the same exact sh*t he’s talking about on Reasonable Doubt. Where’s the concepts? He just needed something to attach it to, which he did. He needs to be a president and start putting out some f*ck*ng artists. When I start getting into saying things about Jay-Z or Def Jam, I’m not speaking to try and get anyone to feel the way I’m feeling. Which is why I say it’s not a diss. ‘Cause I’m not trying to sway anyone’s opinion.

    Fuck Jay-Z!

    • Trill Will Da Don

      fuck you nigga jay da truth

      • http://yourmom Bragonti

        Why are you so quick to defend a person that dont give a fuck about you. Jay just takes your money when you buy the album. Let me guess……You can relate to Jay. No you cant because you dont have his money and you def dont have his girl. Think man

        • http://www.delmasonline.co.za mutha that****

          im down with that man, nice comment bro

        • devog

          So I guess every other rapper out here besides Jay gives a fuc about you? Ha. When was the last time Joe Budden or any other rapper offered to pay your rent or car note. I bet the best you can do is Young Jeezy and Tip giving away turkeys on Thankgiving. LOL

    • TGutta

      You can say what you want about Jay but the fact of the matter is that he is the best hands down! Jay has sold over 30 million records to Jo Budden’s 500K. That’s no competetion.

      Joey needs to pick a battle that he can win

      Jo Budden is just crying 4 attention because no one in the game is paying him any attention.

      He’s a fraud that dude is from Sumter SC and repping New Jersy like he been born and raised there.

      Honesty is the best policy

      • http://gnaa.us TGutta is a fag

        Jay-Z fans showing stupidity? Shocking. Higher record sales doesn’t determine a rapper’s skill dumbass. (See: Ras Kass) Budden is correct, Jay needs to stop rapping. “Show Me What You Got” was an atrocity.

      • Danny

        Why is it that everytime someone disses Jay-Z its because he wants attention?

      • http://yourmom Bragonti

        Way to go stupid. Youre not the best because you sold this many records. Thats like saying Britney the best because she sold 80 million. So stupid

      • confussed

        WHEN DID RECORD SALES EQUAL TALENT. HELL CHINGY SOLD MORE THAN JOE BUDDENS, BUT WE ALL AGREE JOEY IS BETTER. ITS EASY TO TELL WHO’S YOUNG ON HERE CAUSE THEY SAY DUMB SH*T.

    • j nucka

      budden is trash he’s the reason jay still rappin cause of lame niggaz like u messin up the game with that bullsh@t u call hip hop by the way hip hop is dead just turn on the radio and youll see.

      • Y. Fame

        I think people like you are hypocrites. You all say hip hop is dead yet there are artists that come out and try to save it but you just shit on them like Lupe, Pap, and Joell Ortiz. They’re all talented rappers but not one person went out and copped a Joell album or even downloaded it. Yall are just now starting to listen to Lupe. He’s been trying to get through to yall for a while. Hip hop is only dead because you want it to be. If yall wanted it to be alive, it would happen. (When I say yall I mean people who just back JAYZ no matter what comes out his mouth and don’t want to listen to anybody new)Plus Budden has a good point. Jay needs to stop, it’s over for him. I’m ready to hear somebody new. How about a Mighty Infamous or a Technology or a Wale or a Naledge. Do your homework

    • lefty

      Budden’s a fucking fagot. Tryn’ to get publicity by speakn’ on one of the greats. Jay can do it for as long as he wants and da people WILL ALWAYS be buyn’those albums. American Gangster’s gettn’ play all over—- when was the last time you heard shit from this punk. Fuck’em. Game did you in when you pissed him off, you ain’t worthy of havin’ beef with these legends. Take dey names outta yo mouff n’ get a job you bitch.

    • RC

      have you idiots been dormant for the past decade…Joe Budden takes suicidal, albeit premeditated, overly radial shots at prominent artists simply for media gain and exposure…a la 50 cent. Intriguing marketing plan but the funny thing about marketing is people have to buy what youre selling…and this shit isn’t “up in the club” and nobody’s ging to “pump it up”

  • tj

    man this lame ass nigga cant fuck with no hova jay not worry about this broke nigga if jay come out with an diss he will get fuck over just like he did on his shit that nigga is shawn bradley lame nigga fuck joe budden

  • giantsfan

    Nigga shut the fuck up! If Jay stops rappin today, yo ass will still be strugglin to move units. Nigga, if you didnt mention Jay’s name, we wouldnt have any interest in you at all………

  • P Swayne

    I think Joe budden needs to step his rap game up alot and quit complaining. Jay Z is on a whole nother level with quotables that have changed hip hop.And hes still doin it. Joe budden are you crazy he has nothin. Tell me one quotable or line or song that has did anything for anybody.Shit you know its bad for Joe when nobody buys the bootleg.

    • pee scholar

      yea but he is not discredtitng him for being the greatest and having all those game changing quotables, he is saying that he is finished. I’m a diligent jay-z fan until i heard american ganster and now i agree with joe, its a wrap for big homie he has officially signed to the wizards!!!! joe will of course never be as nice as jay was, but he is killing em right now…..

  • Lion

    MM3 was so fu*@in Hott!!! i still cant stop playin it. it keeps growin on me. I think ima need rehab ina few weeks. for real tho Mood Muzik 3 is much better than jayzs american gangster an american godfather put together!
    Its Its Its that on top muzik. An im in the mood Bit@H What!!! 100

  • bizzle

    Budden is just mad because he’ll never be on Jay’s level. Jay’s been shining for so long that this lame can’t take it and even when Budden put this new mixtape out its still garbage comapred to Jay. And Jay’s been doing it since ’96 and is still hotter than these wack young cats. Where was budden when g-unit was dumping on him?? The Game was all over this dude and budden just went into hiding mode.

  • Jeopardy

    This dude can’t even sell an album or keep a label and he wants to talk about Jay?

  • AFUCKINGENIUS

    NOW I LIKE JOE but THIS IS JUS DUMB… I FEEL YOU JAY’S NOT AS HOT AS HE USED TO BE BUT NEITHER IS JOE BUDDENS… I AIN’T HEARD SHIT IN A LONG TIME THAT I REALLY WOULD BANG FROM LIL JOEY… I KNOW DEF JAM & JAY maybe DID HIM WRONG CUZ HE IS NICE BUT COME ON… YOU CAN’T GO AT JAY NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE KNOW JOE FOR THIS… JUS GO BACK TO… REGULAR JOE… AND MAKE THAT FEEL GOOD MUSIC BEFORE JAY PUT THA “ROCBOYS” ON DAT ASS AND PLAY THE HORNS LIKE…

  • BIZZLE

    Then The Game ran into this cat face to face at nba allstar week in LA a few years back and Budden aint want no part of it, now he’s coming back with this bullshit talk. BUDDNEN IS A LAME, GET A NEW CAREER. AND HE’S MAD AT DEF JAM BECAUSE THEY DIDNT WANT TO PUT HIS WACK MUSIC OUT.

  • Jerry

    you guys need to understand that yes jay-z was once one of the best lyricist ever but his time is done man… have you guys really listened listened to American Gangster?..Dude song topics are bogus man..he talk about pushing wieght to Don Imus?..what kind of shit is that?..and i dont know if he can come at joey with a good diss track..Jay never really recovered from Ether (as in he never came out with a good diss track after)…;that diss for jimmy was wack…he squashed it with Nas…Joey got every right for throwing rocks at the thrown..im feeling mood muzik 3 better then American Gangster..Listen to that shit b4 you give your opinion..

    • bryson

      man u really didnt listen to american gangster hard enough…it is the best album for 07-08…the man is still better than all the other rappers out there and thats a fact…i like some of the new rappers but they cant fuck wit jay…i think personally that he still as good as he was…but u have ur opinion

  • http://myspace.com/loonyt706 Loony T

    I’ve never heard of this Joe Buddens guy. What does he do. Does he rap? How can someone so irrelevant go at a artist with 10 number one albums. Seriously. One of Jay-Z’s singles probably sold more than Joe Buddens whole carreer

  • Yessir

    Niggas is mad cause THE TRUTH HURTS. Everything that Buddens said is the truth. American Gangster a Jay-Z album not a concept. Jay even told Billboard.com that he still have one album left under his contract.He just used the movie to so he wouldn’t have to put alot of effort on the album. Y’all get off Hova’s nut sacks.

    Oh yeah, Buddens was born in Harlem, NYC. Just cause he stayed in NC for a minute doesn’t mean he is from there.

    MOOD MUZIK 3 = Fire, creativity, inspirational, artistic, and everything else. Just go and cop it.

  • CHI-C

    The new Jay-Z CD is a must buy.

  • Dirty South

    Joe sell some albums first then talk.

  • Brooklyn

    Seriously Joey? “Jealousy is a weak emotion you got to over come that.” Ive read the interview and dude sound like he is just jealous of these niggas not just Jay. Who the fuck are you? American Gangster was a superb album. Overtime we’ll see if its a classic but the musical melody and the storytelling is ON POINT!!!

  • Danny

    WOW I have never seen so much people hating on Joe Budden B4…

    Joe Budden is top 5 dead or alive… What do you mean he doesnt have the right to speak on Jay??

    • bryson

      how in the fuck did joe become a top five anything but top five worst on def jam….come on man

  • J

    Joe Budden might have a point with what he’s saying he’s just not the person to say it. and if you go buy statistics Jay-Z is the best ever but you can never really say who is the best ever since big and pac got cut short and there’s really good rappers that have never been heard of and people all have different strengths.

  • lukee lefty

    this whole disgruntled Def Jam artist hating Jay-z callin him old thing is getting played.

  • Moe

    People please. Who really gives a damn about what you think of Jay. Buddens really needs to concentrat on making good music. The problem with all these newcomer is they are just “Locals” or “Regional”. They need to come up with an original marketing plan. It seems as though every other week some rapper is spitting Jay out their mouth. Now if the man is not the best why doen everyone fills to speak his name. Forget about Jay and just do you, beacuse what he eats don’t make you shit. So Budden pleae move on.

  • E

    Jag crush him… anyday. End of story.

  • E-Double

    Ok, I check out the comments on some things once and awhile, but Danny, Budden is one of the top 5 dead or alive???????? Man please! I can name 10 that he can’t even get with!
    10. Busta
    9. Luda
    8. Big Boi
    7. Nas (And I’m not even a big fan of his)
    6. Cube/Scarface
    5. Eminem
    4. Redman
    3. Pac
    2. B.I.G
    1. Rakim

    And those aren’t in any special order, but Budden’s isn’t better than Heavy D. or Mase. Let alone Andre 3000, Ras Kass or even X to the Z. I agree being the best rapper ain’t about record sales, but this dude don’t even make any noise. Shi$ Lil’ Wayne makes more noise than this dude and he don’t move units either, but people say he is the best right now(which I do not agree with!) Think about it man.

    • bryson

      sellin records doesnt mean ur the best…but it has something to do wit…it means other people feel u are the best so they respect u enough to buy ur shit…they rest they just bootleg…and for yall who say jay aint shit, y ur favorite rapper feel the need to diss him…BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYIN TO GO AFTER THE TOP NIGGA IN THE GAME…they dont want to go after anybody else cause every other rapper that isnt on his level isnt even worth it…so stop hatin on the man PLEASE

  • Wow

    Its Funny How Almost Every Person In Hear Hating On JOE BUDDEN Dont Even Pronounce His Name Right, Its Not BUDDENS People Damn. Thats How I Know None Of Yall Niggas Calling Him Wack Have Probally Even Really Listened To The DUde. Joey Is The Truth Whether You Like It Or Not. And I Cant Believe One Of Yall Said Joe Budden Is Messing Up Hip Hop??? Wtf, Dude Is Better Than 95% Of Rappers Out. His MIXTAPE Is Better Than Nigga’s Actuall Albums, And Your Telling Me He’s Wack?? Wow, Now Thats A Hater..Fa Real
    One MOre Thing, Why Does Everybody Keep Saying Joe Budden Is A Hater And He Hating On Jay Cause Jay Is Better Than Him, Or That Jay Is The Greatest Of ALl Time, Joe Budden Said Jay-Z Is The Greatest To Do It. Ive Never Heard Joe Budden Say Otherwise So Somebody Tell Me How Is Hating On Jay-Z?? He Said Jay Is A President Now, So He Needs To Be Focused On Being A Fucking President, And I Agree. Jay-Z Is Like A Coach Now, Dude Need To Be Coaching And Building His Team(Record Label) Instead Of Trying To Get In The Game With His Players And Build His Stats/Records Up.

  • Osiris

    Is there a more annoying, whining, crybaby bum ass pathetic failure in the industry than Joe Budden? He had all the hype and label support in the world when his first album dropped (does nobody remember Pump It Up being played nonstop back in ’03)…but he flopped, cause the dude just doesn’t have it…so he becomes depressed and starts crying in every song on some Eminem “Cleaning out my Closet” type shit and becomes a hero from depressed losers on the internet…now every song, interview and blog we get from Bum Buddens he’s crying about his failure of a life and blaming everybody else for them…its not Jay’s fault…it’s not Wayne’s fault that he’s the hottest rapper in the industry and your girlfriend likes his music more than yours…its not Jeezy’s fault that he actually was able to turn his debut with Def Jam into a successful career while you flopped and fumbled yours…its nobody’s fault but yours Joesph, you’re just not that hot…I’m sorry, there’s nothing more annoying than some self-pitying loser like Buddens acting as if the world owes him success as if its just suppossed to fall in his lap…Jay-Z just released a fucking classic, and Joe Buddens thinks he should retire…for what? If every rapper over the age of 28 retired, Buddens STILL wouldn’t be hot…why? Because he’s Joe Buddens!! Nobody gives a fuck about this guy, he has delusions of granduer…he was hyped as the next big star of East Coast rap, but he doesn’t have what it takes…go sign to Babygrande Records, release a boring ass Mood Muzik mixtape once every 3 years…have a bunch of geeks on the net overrate you as their internet hero…and be happy with that Bum Buddens…stop hating on Jay-Z and looking like the pathetic 2007 version of “The Madd Rapper” from the Bad Boy skits of yore

  • Mr KCMO

    Joe Budden is only expressing his opinion. Respect it for that. He was at least clear in his argument, and as such, he gets respect for that. No beating around the bush. Me? I think Jay is on fire right now, but for real, it’s been a minute since I felt his music. Joe is right, Reasonable Doubt, Hard Knock Life, 2 greatest albums ever. That was then, this is now, and Jay needs to rap to his new set, the billionaires. Nothing he can tell me about the hood anymore

  • damn

    I agree with e double. budden washed up before he even did anything. give a fuck if hespit platinum saliva he sucks donkey dick. sound like ll cool j all pissy n shit. someone get this nigga a whaaaaamburger and some french cries.

  • da troof

    Budden is dumb nice, but he needs to stay in his lane and make the music his “fans” want. The crown is never passed via coup, as witnessed. Its bestowed by the streets. As witnessed by the passing from BIG to Jay. Jay didn’t make his bones dissing folks. He just went hard, and waited his turn. The streets are not calling for this, Budden is attempting a coup. Didn’t work for Jones, nor Weezy.. The idea, even that Joe would not take his first opportunity free, to make Def Jam see what they were missing, but rather to clap back, at a man, he will NEVER, out achieve is amazing… To me at least. Not one song on the oft mentioned “Reasonable” went at those that passed up the chance to put it out.. Why your shiz? I dont know many albums, widely accepted as “classic” that wasted time going at others.

    People in BK, will never elevate a guy like Budden to the throne. Period. He doesn’t have the swagger, needed… Its no offense, I don’t have it either. We want to see a bit of ourselves in our rep. Don’t think the other boroughs would buy it either. Jay never cried about a release date. Joe did. Not very becoming of a “king”. More like a jester. Some men elevate themselves to boss status. Lemme see it, Joe. Cuz, see bruh, Jay is still gonna be on yatch’s in the south of France so, who is Budden’s kiddin’. Again Joe has amazing lyrics, but who can sing a Budden hook, besides “Pump it up”? All this time (04′), and gum flapping and MM’s and he has still not dropped another SONG with a notable hook..
    Dope raps, but no songs. Budden is unsellable the way he is :( Dissing a dude, who so many of us has supported means either, a. we were all wrong, and Joe is the only one smart enough to set us str8 b. Joe is just really convinced that the world has just not heard the way he, does it.. And when they do, he’ll be a superstar.

    Stay in your lane, Joe

  • jack bronson

    budden is the truth , whoever said hes doing this for press is an idiot , this conflict between jay , defjam , and joey goes way back , get your facts straight

    whoever said joey was scared of game at the all star game is an idiot , game didint do shit and joey didnt do shit , nothing happened.

    and its not like joey is the only one saying this about jay. American gangster was wack , kingdom come had about 5 good cuts on it. Mood music 2 can stand with all of jays albums , and thats no disrespect to jay

    mood music 3 , get it

      we are all hip-hoppers here, if cats dont know his name by now, that should be a hint and a half for his ass. He sold gold, cats still call him Buddens. U God sold 4 copies solo 10 yrs ago, anybody mess up his name? Mess up Masta Killa? who never had an album? lol gtfoh

  • K_Lang

    Yo, first of all Joe’s been keepin chill tongue for a while cuz Jay dropped him off of Def Jam i give him props for waiting so long. So now to see a nigga come out of retirement and put out a garbage album and one that is half garbage is an insult when u never really got to put out a REAL project of ur own. THE ONLY REASON THE LAST 2 WENT PLATINUM IS CUZ OF THE NAME JAY-Z IS ON IT. If u listen to the shit not knowing who it was u’d be less biased. Reasonable Doubt was the first album I ever listened to all the way thru and he defintly is washed up like Shaq is compared to now. I would’ve talked more shit and I would’ve done it earlier! U niggas need to face it he aint the same no more, just cuz u cant admit shows how much of a dick rider u r. Move over Beyonce save some for these niggas!

  • bdot

    Who the fuck is Joe Budden? That n*gga needs to shut the f*ck up and go make an album.

  • KG’s Daddy

    Why does Joey wanna give Jay ammo like that? Hov got endless sublims, summers and summers worth. Joey dont want that, he’ll go insane and end up doin some stupid shit on his own to send his career further into the graveyard, he dont need that kinda pressure. Cool that shit Joey, I agree wit you, but SHIT. You dont want it wit Hov nigga.

  • truth.com

    First thing most of you guys must not have read what Joe Buddens complaint was about Jay-z. The biggest problem with Jay-z is not that he wants to rap but he is the president of Def-Jam. I personally think that nigga needs to quit or get fired from def Jam because a lot of the artist who can use the shine and have put out good albums are not eating. If you look at ghost and freeway they both put out good albums but they are getting no promotion what so ever. Since Jay and LA Reid been their they only care about R&B.

  • KillaPat

    I like Joe Budden, but he’s completely wrong this time. Jay-Z is still the best rapper today, and American Gangster is an instant classic and the album of the year! So Joey needs to quit dissin Jay and focus on FINALLY releasing an actual album!

  • Mystery

    Dudes that can’t even stay hot in the game for a 1 to 2 year period need to stop speaking on other artists that have done so for over 10 years.

  • miami_vice

    Complete Bullshit !!!! Joe Buddens will never EVAR record a song even close to the equivalent of Roc Boys. I thought maybe he had something, but this guy is just fucking delusional.

  • RL

    Jay is the biggest artist on Def Jam and Rockafella without the “president” job description. It cannot be denied, Jay is in the position to put on some mean talent (possibly more talented/skilled lyricists than he?) but he won’t share the pie (oops spotlight). If Joe is simply being a bitch about the whole matter then what does that make Method, LL, Ghostface, Redman, or Black Thought? At some point, these artists also shared Budden’s sentiments and aired them publicly.

  • Y. Fame

    I don’t know what’s wrong with you people who think that a rapper has to be selling records or on MTV everyday for them to be food rappers. If Lupe never got big, he’d still be better than alot of the rappers out here. You people are so ignorant. You are the epitamy of why hip hop is on its death bed. I’m so sick of people talking like you guys. You guys are the losers out here.

    • Jeopardy

      It’s not that Joey isn’t a good rapper. It’s just that this is like a young NBA player with no Rings talking shit about Shaq.

      Yeah Shaq is getting old, but at least he’s got Rings that he’s earned. Go out and earn some Rings and accomplish something instead of bitching about the next person.

That’s what’s wrong wit the game now. He ain’t did shit in months all of a sudden he disses Jay and get a interview!!!!!! You can say what you want about “Kingdom Come” and “American Gangster” but they were both better then Joe’s wack ass debut. I’m still mad I brought it!!!!!!!! Son got Jay’s dna all in his music anyway. Were gonna see where he is a year from now….

  • Khayan from the Bronx

    NIGGAS LIKE JOE BUDDEN GET ME SICK. HE SOUNDS LIKE HATERS IN MY BARBER SHOP HATING ON JAY. HE SHOULD JUST BE HONEST AND SAY THE REASON HE MADE THAT WACK ASS SONG IS TO TRY TO BRING SOME ATTENTION TO HIS SELF. HOW U GOING TO COMPARE JAY TO A OLD SHAQ. SHAQ IS GETTING OLD AND MOVING SLOW. JAY Z JUST PUT OUT THE BEST RAP ALBUM OF THE YEAR. JAY Z IS WHAT KOBE IS TO TH NBA. DON’T GET ME WRONG BUDDEN IS KIND OF NICE BUT HE SHOULD NOT EVEN MENTION JAY OUT HIS MOUTH. JUST ANOTHER FALLEN RAPPER THROWING ROCKS AT THE THROWN.

    and he needs the hype
    i’m not antcipating his album
    watch him make a song with jim jones and
    dame dash

  • Jason

    It’s funny how he says it’s a disrespectful record and a diss with a point, and then later he says it’s not a diss and that he’s just speaking his mind. Obviously Joe Budden has zero material that can compare to Jay’s body of work, and American Gangster is actually one of Jay’s best works to date. Given the state of hip hop and all the horrible music in the genre, Budden should be kissing Jay’s ass and thanking him for putting out a record, let alone an amazing album.

    It’s also funny to note that Budden says Reasonable Doubt was before the time of the average listener today, and then he slams Jay for releasing another album with similar content. Well Joe, if the listeners of today haven’t heard that from him, what’s the harm in giving them a taste of Jay-Z the hustler in ’07? It’s great business, something Joe Budden knows zero about.

    I’m sure Jay laughed when he heard about this. It’s pathetic.

    There really are no Hip-Hop acts selling records. The big difference here is that the acts under Def Jam are the ones speaking out because they can all point the finger at someone we all know by name, Jay-Z. Lupe’s album last year was great, but didn’t sell and you never heard him call out his president. They are in this to make money. I Love Jumpoff, but seriously would you put out another album based on his last album sales???

    Kanye is under Jay, you don’t hear him complaining. He goes out and works. He gets on every tv show, magazine cover and internet site. He tells you how dope his album is and then backs it up.

    Did none of these dudes pay any attention to Yeezy when The College Dropout was dropping? He was a producer trying to rap (something everyone laughs at) with no buzz. He went out and created an awesome album and paid for his own video.

    Rappers like Beans, Freeway and LL Cool J need to shut the hell up and let their music speak for them. The only thing I ever heard them say about their albums was that they didn’t get publicized. Go promote your shit your damn self! Create your own buzz.

    I hot album is a hot album and people will know about it and support it.

    PS-I get heated on LL popping shit. His last album got a lot of publicity with a J-Lo feature that was all over tv and radio. I knew the release date and I coped on that Tuesday and got my free poster with it (publicity?) and the album was wack! It didn’t go wood because Jay-Z didn’t promote it, it went wood because the albums reviews trashed it and rightfully so! It sucked!

  • Amazing Grace

    Budden makes good music, we can’t front on that. But, hating on jay ain’t the way. Instead of making songs about ya moods and shit, stop bitching, and MAKE SOME HIT RECORDS!!!! Nobody at the label is going to respect an artist that can’t produce a hit record. Yeah, I agree that Jay Z should do more to promote artists, my question is why would any artist sign to a label where the president or the CEO is also a artist? C’mon man lets be real, Jay still gets it in he’s not, hot he’s great. Budden can be great, but its gonna take more than a few mood musics to do so.

  • http://yourmom Bragonti

    Its funny how Jay Z fans can sit here and try an shit on Joe. Joe is a better rapper. Jay is richer, but when did anybody start caring about that. Jay Z dont care about any of you ”fans” on here defending him. This nigga some where off with B on and island. Jay dont even let his ”fans” go to his 4040 club without them spending up all there little check money from work all week. Yall sit here and defend someone that could give a fuck about you. At least Joe has his own site where he talks to the people. His ”fans”. You fnas live sad lives when all you do is defend a person you will never really get to know. You Fucks are just dollar signs. STUPID

  • Flymasta

    Joe Buddens is right about one thing shaq isn’t like what he was in the 90′s but b4 y’all get on my case that’s the only thiing I agree with buddens cause shaq still dominates and shit’s on ppl who get in his way just like Jay-Z he may or may not be what he was in the 90′s but his lyrical mind thoughts will still shit on buddens when he get’s in jigga’s way. I like joe Buddens but he needs to pick his battles better cause he sounds like a bitch

  • pointgodkg14

    I love Hov. I love Buddens. And frankly, you can only really have a logical opinion on this shit if you know the situation. Anybody think Jay ain’t been on Budden’s dick check the “Pump It Up” (remix) from ’03. 4 real, I think Jigga knows Buddens is nasty…and for anybody that thinks Budden’s shooting his mouth off is unjustified, check back in ’03 to see who fired the first shot and do ur fucking homework next time. Fucking kids. (And for the record, anybody that thinks AG was a concept album, what exactly did Hello Brooklyn have to do with a concept? Or Ignorant Shit?….Idk..just thinking out loud here)

  • http://xxlmag Roc Boy

    who the fuck is joe budden to be coming at hov I hate when lil niggas throw rocks at the motherfuckin throne…..now he gotta get his career ended

  • dat dude

    Hmm lets not forget that Joe Budden has always ranked Jay as the best rapper in interviews, I don´t think he´s doin this just to gain attention. He has a way of speaking his mind that gets him in trouble.Just cause he mentioned Jay people is actin as if he cant rap. “Dumb out” anyone?
    I don´t know, Joe is one of my favorite rappers and Jay is the greatest of all times. Shouldnt be beefin.

  • maxamill

    ITS FUNNY TO HEAR A NIGGA HATE ON THE NEXT MAN WHEN HIS ALBUM HE PUT OUT WAS STRAIGHT TRASH AND I BROUGHT THAT SHIT THINKING IT WOULD BE GOOD AND JAY Z’S WORST ALBUM DIDNT COME CLOSE TO THE BULLSHIT HE PUT OUT THAT SHIT PISSED ME OFF AND FUCK A MIXTAPE,IM TIRED OF NIGGAS PUT OUT BETTER MIXTAPES THAN ALBUMS,JOE NEEDS 2 MAKE A GOOD ALBUM FIRST AND THEN I CAN RESPECT HAT HE SAYING BECAUSE I LIKE HIS MIXTAPES BUT DAM CAN WE GET A GOOD ALBUM AND RESPECT YOUR ELDERS,I KNOW HE MAD JAY NEVER PUT OUT HIS LAST ALBUM BUT I HEARD THAT ALBUM AND HE SHOULD BE HAPPY JAY DIDN’T DROP THAT CAUSE IT WAS TRASH 2

  • soy-yo

    I dont matter if he hasnt sold shit. What he saying bout jay is totally true. Obviously buddens needs to step his game up and so does jay. Jay needs to understand his position and how money and power stopped him from being what he used to be: a hungry rapper. He is now an average rapping dude with lots of green. He aint even being a president and some hungry rappers are waitin on him but he still too busy trynna launch jay z. A shame!

  • hottubtony

    yall niggas crazy i dont care how old jay gets hands down he still the best an by the way if yall wood say nas is one of the best m.c but who saved his career jay thats who yall haters if thats the case why dont yall tell nas he done cose his albums dont be so hot but when u the best it be like that right welcome to the party life people haha

  • B-EZ

    BUDDEN IS WACK PERIOD. AND YEAH I’VE HEARD YOUR MIXTAPE NIGGA AND IT AINT NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT. DUDE TALKS TRASH AND MAKES TRASH MUSIC. IMMA START CALLING HIM JOEY THE GARBAGE MAN. JAYS DONE EVERYTHING YOU WANNA DO NIGGA.

  • TEFFLON

    FUCK JAY Z..I AGREE WITH JOE…I MEAN JAY Z IS S SELFISH PIECE OF SHIT, THE NIGGA IS WORTH 1/2 BILLION & WONT LET NOONE ELSE EAT, I WISH HIS G4 JUST FELL OFF THE SKY….FUCK HIM, HE WONT BE MISS…THE NEXT MAN IS SIGN CAN’T EVEN FEED HIS FAMILY, AND JAY Z WONT LET NOBODY RELEASE AN ALBUM, HE USE ALL THE MARKETING MONEY ON HIM….FUCK JAY Z

  • R

    Ok I don’t get it, now if Jay was to do like Koch records and let dudes just put ShIT out then they be mad because he didn’t tell them it wasn’t ready yet. Let’s be real Method man, LL, Beans, etc.. all know that right now mucic is not selling. So you put marketing dollars in a project and it don’t even sell 100,000 now you in the hole. Secondly if you not hot, ya not hot. Method man was hot for a min then you ride that. Also Jay was consistant he drop every year not many MC drop an album every single year with no mixtapes in between. Jay is just smart and kept himself relevant and hot.

  • spigpaul

    IF YOU ARE ON A LABEL AND YOU HAVE NOT RELEASED A ALBUM FOR OVER 4 YEARS AND ALL THESE OTHER ARTIST ARE RELEASING MULTIPLE ALBUMS IN THAT TIME YOU WOULD BE PISSED OFF TOO, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT A BUDDEN FAN YOU HAVE TO AGREE W/THAT. ON TOP OF THAT MOST OF THE STUFF THAT COMES OUT ON DEF JAM IS GARBAGE. THINK ABOUT WHO HAS DROPPED ALBUMS IN THAT TIME:

    RHIANNA (3 OR 4 ALBUMS)
    NE-YO (AT LEAST 2)
    GHOSTFACE (4 ALBUMS AND MOST OF THEM ARE TRASH)
    JAY-Z (2)
    METHOD MAN (2)
    JEEZY (2)
    BLEEK
    MANY OTHERS ALSO

    AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE COULD HATE ON THE MOOD MUZIK MIXTAPES, HE IS BASICALLY GIVING YOU A ALBUM THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAY $13 FOR. IT’S ALL ORIGINAL MUSIC AND MOST ARTIST WOULD HOLD THAT MATERIAL FOR THE ALBUM AND RELEASE MIXTAPES W/GARBAGE FREESTYLES OVER OTHER PEOPLE’S BEATS?? HOW COULD YOU HATE ON THAT, MM3 IS 80 MINUTES OF ORIGINAL MUSIC

    • $H@KIM @LL@H

      Ghostface trash???? nigga u gotta be fuckin stupid!!! Ghost’s Big Doe Rehab is tha shit!!! It shitz on 8 Diagrams and 95% of tha albums made this year. Fishscale and More Fish wuz fire too!!! He gets better or measures up to tha hype with every album and he’s 7 albums deep and every album is at least a 4/5 or 4.5/5, except Ironman and Supreme Clientele 5/5. Sun u betta get out more and listen if u think Ghost is wack!!!

  • Who dat ?

    Y’all cats have to learn to separate the messenger from the message. The messenger is not perfect, Budden does have his faults. The message though is the truth. Jay is not nice, no , sometimes there are still flashes here and there but come on. Jay sells you his swagger.

    Buy this album cos I made 34million ,

    buy this album cos I dont need your money ,

    buy this album cos I got beyonce ,

    you dumb ni99as buy this album full of incoherent lines I dont even take time to write ( cos I am too busy )and listen to it 5 times to obtain whatever meaning you think I meant to say ( I dont give a fuck ..I’m rich Bitch!) then argue over it.

    This dude is in showbusiness ,

    he has never been an artist.

    Are you guys really that Dumb? Andre’s verse in “The art of story telling part 4″ could smoke that American Gangster album.

    Get serious over the shit you spend money on.

    If you not in the studio, if not recording then what yo shit get pushed. Get in the studio. Joe said himself that he was not recording. Now come on you been here since 03, you spend too much on mixtapes.

  • THEGOD

    He’s a fraud that dude is from Sumter SC and repping New Jersy like he been born and raised there.

  • TISHAN

    WHO SAYS IF YOUR A CERTAIN AGE IN RAP, YOU MUST STOP RAPPIN’? I DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT. THEN WHY IS IT IN EVERY OTHER MUSIC GENRE, THEY CAN KEEP GOING? NOW I DON’T AGREE WITH THE BUDGET MONEY THROWN AT OTHER RAPPERS, BUT YOU CAN’T BLAME JAY-Z AS IF HE’S THE ONLY PERSON IN CHARGE OF THE MARKETING DOLLARS. NOW GRANTED HE DOES HAVE A LOT OF INFLUENCE IN THE DECISION MAKING AND A LOT OF US ARE NOT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS TO KNOW WHATS REALLY GOING ON, BUT I DON’T NEED A MARKETING PERSON TELLING ME WHAT TO BUY. WHEN MY FAVORITE CD OF ALL TIME CAME OUT….MAKAVELI….I JUST WALKED INTO THE STORE AND SAW IT ..BOUGHT IT… LOVED WITH NO MARKETING DOLLARS INVOLVED IN MY DECISION. KEEP GRINDING JOE BUDDEN AND YOU TOO CAN ACCOMPLISH WHAT JAY Z HAS DONE AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO BECAUSE I WISH JAY WILL NEVER STOP RAPPING…BECAUSE THATS ONE OF “MY FAVORITE RAPPERS” WHO EVER YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER IS ..THEN I WISH HE/SHE TO WOULD CONTINUE TO RAP…PEACE

  • SADbutTRUE

    People are negative towards Jay simply because its in Fashion to be that way. The AG album is clearly better than most of the so called “Albums” from your favorite artist this year and in recent memory. Not being able to duplicate a “Blueprint” or a “Black Album” doesn’t mean you fell off. It is just a testament to how hard it is to duplicate such artistry which Jay has accomplished 3x(Reasonable Doubt classic….shoulda went triple). Now I havent heard Buddens’ mixtape but his comments display the biggest fault in HipHop where we discard our legends. MuhFawkin Kiss, Aerosmith and Rolling Stones fans have continued to respect and show love to their favorite band for years but in hip hop the closest we have is LL and Short.

  • T. Oxner

    wen joe budden put sum credible shit out he can talk but until dae its the R-O-C boy

  • BigB Cheff

    IF YOU PUT OUT TWO ALBUMS BEFORE YOUR BEST MCS ON THE LABEL, SOMETHING IS WRONG. I THINK JAY-Z IS ONE OF THE BEST RAPPERS EVER, BUT AS A PRESIDENT YOU NEED TO LET YOUR ROSTER SHINE BEFORE YOU GET TWO ALBUMS OUT! THE ROC WILL NEVER BE THE SAME IF JAY DON’T LET THEM GET THEIRS FIRST!

  • budden is garbage

    buddens is garbage, hes clearly jealous of jay-z.

  • jdubb

    this dude is jealous of jay-z. he is garbage he mixtape sounds like techno bs. Quit hatin dude jay-z will eat you for a snack and ruin you more then game has.give it up, budden wishs he was jay-z, i think deep down he loves the song roc boys and hes mad he has never made a hit close enough to even compare it too.

  • iz u serious

    Ok I really hope joe buddens read this, ok 1st off joey is flat out hott no arguing. Mixtapes official! Album was ok. But- 2 put it like Jay-z needs to stop rapping is fucking crazy!!!!! Thts like telling denzel,al pacino,robert deniro to stop making movies. As a youngin I didn’t know nothing about Godfather,Scarface,Taxi,etc.. But being tht these extemely talented actors I had to do my homework. And so wht if he’s president, u can’t be the director and star in the movie as well?? As far as promoting u mean to tell me ur tht big of an artist bcuz of jay not doing his job??? He been president for 2 yrs ur so-so ALBUM came out 4yrs ago…Fuck u talkin bout. U think weezy hot cause of promotion?? No- he hott cuz @ the moment he hott! Nobody can make the public feel u but you! Joe make hot mixtapes but like 50 says can’t write songs[albums]. And all this comparing Jay to jordan- Rap is all mental,jordan failed cuz physically he couldn’t keep up. If the passion there I say do it! Hi Haters!

  • texasboy

    if ya shit aint gone make money–the company not puttin ur album out.. if fab barely sellin u think joey gone sell?–jay a smart dude.. he soley owns the r.o.c–so he is paying his damn self whenever his album drop. he didnt even do promotion for his own album because LL Ghostface DMX etc. were complaining.–and he still did good numbers. joe just need to lift his head and create his own path.. go indie- koch– fuck it! u have more control

  • champ

    Joe Buddens look at who yall are talking about its Joe Buddens the very same nigga who took the Game’s voice off a mixtape to make his song hot and it was still shit….Jay is the Michael Jordan of rap I mean the boy plays for the team he owns……and honestly The American Gangster album is a hot joint you cant hate it Jay’s Blueprint 2.0 or 2.1 or something was harder than all of Joe Buddens albums put together Bow Wow and Lil Romeo shit was than Joe Buddens shit….I mean its Joe Buddens wake the fuck up people…Its Joe Buddens need I say more

  • Nucca

    u niggaz is retarted. search some of Joe Budden’s musik and you’ll see da truth. Jay-Z (The President) is the reason y’all aint hearin’ all of Joe Buddens musik.
    Look at da trend.

    LL Cool J-Talkin’ bout Jay
    DMX-Talkin’ bout Jay
    Dipset-Talkin’ bout Jay
    Nas-Aint doin’ nothin’
    Bleek-Aint doin’ nothin
    Beanie Sigel-Aint doin’ nothin’
    Freeway-Aint doin’ nothin’

    wouldn’t u be pissed if da President is releasin’ niggaz dat u is betta dan. Jay-Z is da reason why Hip-Hop is dead he’s the one commercializing it.

    Yo Joey is a little pissed and everybody pops shots at the head kat especially if you believe that you can do it better, but yo speaking about it and being about it is two different things. I’ve bought Joe’s first album and a gang of his mix tapes, and I consider myself to be a fan, but honestly When has he ever said anything of relevance. Other than Pump it Up. When was the last time you wanted to just run out and get something from this cat other than Mood Muzic 3 just to see if he was going to come correct???

  • Cam Jones

    See people got it messed up. I think Budden is more than Jay took that spot as President of Def Jam and hardly put any muscle behind other artist albums. Redman could not even get a music video on Rap City much less 106 and Park. Beans and Free are his boys and even they hardly get any kind of promotion. The only people Def Jam are really backing that hard are Neyo, Rihanna, Kanye, Jeezy and Luda to a certain degree.

  • lol

    you niccas is dumb.

  • champ

    If an artist shit is hot then its hot you cant that away…yall talkin about jay is not letting his artist do anything….lets sit down and name a few….

    Memphis Bleek- 534 (last spring or summer)
    Scarface-For My Homies Pt.2 (last year)
    Scarface-Made (this year)
    Ludacris-Release Therapy) (last fall)
    Neyo- last year
    Nas-last year
    Beanie Siegal (this year)

    That is six fucking artists no telling how many more he got lined up yall mad at the nigga cause he have two hot albums out of retirement dammit Mike came back and won what 3 or 4 more rings why Jay cant do it….I bet yall are the same one who like “Party Like A Rockstar”, or “Walk It Out”, or let guess D4L
    and if you do and dont like Jay then I see where your taste in music lay….I mean we are debating over whether Joe Buddens is tight or not I can see if we were talking about somebody worth it but Joe Buddens…..Its Joe Buddens

    LET’S BE HONEST. JAY Z IS STILL THE BEST REGARDLESS OF WHAT HE DO AND I AM FROM THE SOUTH. HE HAS BEEN HOLDING IT DOWN SINCE THE DAYS OF 2 PAC AND BIG.

BUT THE FUN THING IS THAT IF HE IS GOING AT JAY LIKE THAT Y HE DIDN’T DO IT IN FRONT OF JAY Z’S BOYS ( BEANIE AND FREEWAY). THAT IS ALL I AM GOING TO SAY BECAUSE I KNOW IF 1 PERSON IN THE RAP GAME THAT IS GOING TO STAND UP FOR HIS MAN IS BEANS! R.I.P. PIMP C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    yooo jay is the best rapper alive without a question but i think he should chilll on the albums and focus on the arist cause come on why r ur own artists dissing you he must not be focusin on them he should stick to he 1 tracs every two months to remined people he the beast but focus on his artists cause joe anit the olny one mad at him cause his right hand man beans is mad at him too sayin that everything anit good at the roc so he need to really retire and do right by his artists and stick to doing features on tracks and two mixtape tracks every two months he got enough money to do that

  • GoFiGuRe!! (industry insider)

    WOW!!!! Well hip hop isnt but so dead due to fact that both sides are real passionate about their arguments for each MC (hence I keep my job.) Truth is; by stats and numbers Jay is tops, greatest of all time I dont know about, but of our time due to the deaths of PAC and BIG..then rightfully so. I am a fan of hip hop and like both artist. Listening to MM, I did see a growth in the lyricism of Budden , but I also do see slight hints of Jay in his flow, not to discredit Joey. He is nice. I see a lot of people speaking on Def Jam based on what MC’s like LL are saying . The truth is Jay did a lot for Def Jam and overall revenue grew, because Jay is crazy when it comes to the marketing game, and he brought talent there. Another common false statement is that Jay ate all the marketing dollars …Lets try no,… especially since a lot of the marketing for AG was tied into the movie credits as well. As for Kingdom Come, it wasnt one of Jays best credits, it was the life he’s living now type music. People say Jay cant tell them anything about the hood no more, but when he put out an album talking what he’s living now people hated on it. The flow was the same, it was still Jay, just different topics. Personally I like AG, think its a great album. Think Budden’s MM is a great album/mixtape. If you are a true fan of hip-hop you dont call any artist to quit. You allow them to put out their music no matter what. You have a choice on whether to buy it or not. POINT BLANK. As far as Joey goes, you are a great artist/ MC, but obviously something isnt working, and dissing Jay is not going to help. You have to find the right marketing scheme for you . The right elements. You just cant sign to anyone and expect it to work. You cant just sign to a major under the wrong conditions and expect it to work. Sounds to me like you need to fire your business advisor (ie. Contract Lawyer) and get it in wit someone else (no homo) … Also smart marketing schemes would come into play here…There are A LOT of Jay fans out there. A lot larger than your fan base, hell most of your fan base is part of his. Since he is the more established and bigger name , when you diss him guess what happens…You are losing. Even if youre right (which I’m not saying you are) youre still gonna lose. This effects spins and the big business side of your contract. In closing Budden keep doing your thing, because I am a fan , BUT pick your battles wisely.

    Instead of blaming Jay-Z he needs to start remembering that the Game put him out of his misery already. Didn’t Game give him 100 bars or something.

    And if he is so good, why did he sign to a independent label.

    get off Jays dick. He shelved your bum ass. U r a minor leaguer at best. Listening to u bitch with your annoying ass voice would lead the casual hip-hop listener to believe the only thing stopping u personally from blowing… is Jay. U cant even retaliate nor stop Ransom from slapping the shit out of your people, what do you want from Jay. Your girl is the dopest thing in your life, and admittedly she has a “history” as u put it. We’ve seen how she lives, ur homeboys living room ect. Not good. Spend some time helping her to clean up and decorate and less time cock jockying, and just maybe you can return to rapping with your former peers as opposed to interviewing them. bum ass nigga
