Why didnt joe budden blow up? I always felt that Joe is still bitter and wants to still have a rap career but hes using the profileration of ABC speak or spell trap rappers as an excuse to put down the mic. Personally think its because of the way he was pushed. They literally threw him out there during 50's run. If they had kept introduced him to the mainstream through guess appearances on random peoples albums, the public would have digested his music better or he would have been received by the public better. They threw him out there and hoped that the teen audience would gravitate to him. They were really relying on the teen MTV-TRL crowd heavy. They thought that crowd would have turned Joe a star overnight but Joe at the time was unknown. If you weren't into rap heavy at the time, you wouldnt know anything about dude except that he was affiliated with DJ clue and he was from Jersey. That's it.
