The Internet helped Joe Budden breathe new life into his career as he struggled with his label, Def Jam, in the middle of last decade. Now, though, the New Jersey rapper is gaining a different kind of exposure online, as alleged nude pics have hit the 'net.

Joey says the picture (which you can see here) is altered, though.

Budden's A Loose Quarter mixtape is available now, and his album, No Love Lost, drops January 22.
