Joe Budden has officially joined the REVOLT TV family after months of speculation about him joining the Sean “Diddy” Combs-owned company.
REVOLT announced Budden will host and produce a new show called State of the Culture, which will premiere this summer.
“Joe has an authentic approach and he’s never afraid to speak the truth. His many talents deserve a platform that pushes the culture forward and we are excited to produce next-level content with him,” Diddy said in a press release.
When Budden left Complex’s Everyday Struggle last year, he said he was “fielding offers” from different companies, including REVOLT. Although he debunked a rumor about signing a $5 million deal with Diddy’s network last December, the Slaughterhouse MC did end up at his widely surmised destination.
“It was important to partner with a company that recognizes the growing need for our voices and ideas to stream freely without interruption. That was a much prettier way to say, we bout to be with the shits,” Budden added in the press release. “Thank you to my business partner Ian Schwartzman and REVOLT for the opportunity to highlight my brutal honesty, passion and integrity. I love REVOLTING!! Together, we will continue to take this thing to heights unseen.”
