Yesterday, a report from The Source indicated that rapper-turned-media character Joe Budden can be rising, butterfly-esque, from his self-imposed cocoon. A contributor of the publication reported that Budden can be performing within the upcoming BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, the place he can be launched by Eminem, of all individuals. On paper, such an concept was hardly far-fetched. Yet the web site has since issued a retraction, claiming that Budden is not going to, the truth is, be contributing to the cypher. Seeing as we reported on their story, we too bear some duty in spreading the narrative; for that, we apologize.
Apparently, Budden’s administration knowledgeable The Source that their contributor had it fallacious, which leads us to marvel how such a mix-up might need occurred within the first place. Perhaps the contributor merely mixed-up Joe Budden with one other rapper, and Eminem for, say, G-Eazy or one thing. Perhaps Budden’s involvement is certainly factual, and administration is just overlaying bases to make sure a shock. Perhaps The Source’s authentic report was fictitious from the leap. Either means, a doubtful gentle has since been forged on the complete story, and I might personally prefer to apologize to anyone whose expectations could have been “pumped up,” because it have been.
Should you be jonesing for a Budden repair, be sure you catch the rapper on one in all his numerous platforms, be it Revolt’s State Of The Culture or Spotify’s The Joe Budden Podcast. Carry on together with your day, and do you have to really feel inclined, tune in to the BET Hip-Hop Awards on October 16th.
