An American media personality and former rapper, Joseph Anthony Budden II (born August 31, 1980) Pump It Up” and Slaughterhouse made him a hip-hop star in 2003 when he was a member of Slaughterhouse.
His transition from rapper to broadcaster was well-publicized after he left the rap game in 2018 and became a co-host on Complex’s show Everyday Struggle. On Patreon and YouTube, Joe Budden produces The Joe Budden Podcast twice a week, and State of the Culture on Revolt. He has been likened to Howard Stern in the hip-hop community.
As a Child
New York City’s Upper Manhattan neighborhood of East Harlem was the birthplace of Budden on August 31, 1980. With his mother and older brother, he moved to Jersey City, NJ, when he was thirteen years old and attended Lincoln High School. Budden’s father was missing from his life as a child, a topic he would later address in his songs.
As a troubled adolescent, Budden was transferred to Laurinburg Institute, a rap training facility in North Carolina, where he developed his craft. As soon as he got back to Jersey, he started doing narcotics and became addicted to angel dust.
On July 3, 1997, Budden voluntarily entered rehab in return for the right to attend his senior prom after an intense encounter with his mother. By the time he was 20, Budden had already fathered a child with an older lady.
When he learned he was expecting a child, Budden decided to take his music more seriously. DJ Clue, the host of Hot 97 and CEO of the Desert Storm Records label, heard one of his early mixtapes, which he had made with producer Dub-B, also known as White Boy.
Private Sphere of Existence
Budden is a father of two. It was on May 11, 2001, at the age of 20 that Budden gave birth to his first child, Joseph Budden III (known as Trey). The Hudson County Sheriff’s Office in New Jersey issued an arrest warrant for Budden in 2010 due to unpaid child support.
Lexington, Budden’s second child with Cyn Santana, was born on December 15, 2017. During an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast in New York in December 2018, Budden proposed to his girlfriend, and the two became engaged.
Since then, the couple has ended their engagement. Over a $75 parking ticket, Joe Budden ended up spending a night in jail and missing a Slaughterhouse show in his hometown.
After he was accused of assaulting his girlfriend and stealing her cell phone, Budden turned himself into police in 2014 and was charged with assault, grand larceny, and robbery in Manhattan Criminal Court. A court later dismissed all charges against Budden.
However, Budden has openly said that he was addicted to PCP and MDMA, and that he is now clean and sober.
Joe Budden’s Bisexuality Is that Sure?
Joe isn’t bisexual, he’s straight. There is no evidence that he is either bisexual or gay, but his statements have been taken in a variety of ways.
The podcast’s host is a heterosexual man who has had relationships with women in the past. According to Hip Hop Dx, he had relationships with Cyn Santana, Yaris Sanchez, and Kaylin Garcia.
He has two sons, Joseph III and Lexington, whom he named after him.
Social media is buzzing with Joe Budden’s recent announcement that he is bisexual, but things may not be as simple as they appear.
While technically he said “I’m bisexual,” on the latest episode of his podcast. “What’s the best way to get the word out about this? How do I spread the word? Listen, I enjoy both male and female company. Get the word out there. I’m having a rough time.”
Budden’s coming out if taken out of context, is what it sounds like. The 41-year-statements old’s are part of a considerably more obscene exchange when heard in its whole.
Budden and his co-hosts are talking about the DaBaby fiasco. Homophobic remarks were made by the rapper on stage at Rolling Loud Miami earlier this summer.
When DaBaby first made the comments, he doubled down on them. It was a “call to action,” he stated on Instagram live, adding his LGBT admirers “don’t have AIDS” because they aren’t “nasty,” “junkies,” or “nasties.” He even made a music video in which he held up a placard reading “AIDS” for… whatever reason.
Harlem, New York, is where Budden grew up. His birthday is August 31st every year. He was born in 1980 and is currently 40 years old. He had little desire to go to school as a child and soon lost interest. When he became entangled in drug use, he had to seek treatment. When he faced a huge challenge in his life, his mother was there to support him.
Cutmaster C and others have collaborated with Budden on several mixtapes. As well as DJ Kayslay, has collaborated with other artists in the music industry.
‘Joe Budden’ was Joe Budden’s first solo album. In 2013, he published his debut album, No Love Lost. As well as “Halfway House,” “Escape Route,” and “Padded Room,” he has a long list of self-released albums. In addition, he has appeared in a number of documentaries and TV shows, including ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York.
Rapper Joe Budden is well-known around the country for his distinctive style. All of his albums have made him a household name, and he’s also taken part in a slew of rap fights.
On February 3, 2021, Budden announced that he would be bringing Patreon-exclusive stuff from his show.
