    Joe Budden has no personality

    His flow and voice were wierd as hell

    He looked corny

    Pump it Up was a generic hit ..the kind that gets spins but does nothing for the artist ...theres lots of rappers like that...think Ace Hood etc

    Didn't follow Pump It Up with a hit

    Debut album wasn't that good

    Not enough went into his artist development

    yeah, Def Jam was a bit shaky at the time, and his follow up single didn't bang.

    That’s a big lie .

    Joe Budden had the first Stan base I ever seen on the internet and it had a heavy female presence

    Females were the ones that kept him semi-relevant

    Ironic that he bagged the baddest females in the game

    To OP he didn’t have a follow up album to his self titled album

    he had a drug problem (it didn’t stop Eminem and a bunch of similar rappers I know)

    his nasal voice was an acquired taste

    he probably burned some bridges at Def Jam

    should have had some more features with OGs who repped the district like Redman.

    He would've been far more successful today than he was when he came out.. The industry just wasn't ready for what he was good at..

    He's partly the blame too.. Dude can't get out of his own way sometimes and doesn't make himself very agreeable..

    budden came out at the wrong time with the wrong image.
    pump it up came out in 2003, and people really didnt really take him seriously as a rapper until 2006 (mood muzik 2)
    pump it up and fire werent the right singles or videos for his image. my homie had to beg me to listen to his debut album and i was shocked by some of the good music he had on there.


    he also had beef with jayz and 50, the two biggest artists at the time. then when it was time for his second album, hip hop was beginning to change and def jam was promoting different kinds of music and newer artists.


    if budden debuted today, or even 5-10 years ago when emo music was popular, he'd he have a whole different career and be way more popular.

    hes also one of the first artists to put his music and daily life online for people to see. he was doing that shyt before instagram was popular lol

    but yeah, timing is everything

    You can tell from a distance he is "hard to work with"

    Those types of renegades are simply not gonna prosper in the "political" ass industry

    He just didnt want to play the game. For what its worth it did better for him creatively, buisness and legacy wise

    I remember him having beef with Jay and Jay was running DefJam at the time so his second album was in purgatory because of it.

    I liked his first album for what it's worth...its also the only Budden album I've ever listened to

    I still listen to walk with me

    Def Jam gave him a chance to drop The Growth back in 2005 when Jay was running things. Jay let everyone drop an album that year (bleek, young gunz, beanie, Kanye, Juelz, etc). Joe had "Gangsta Party" with Nate Dogg. Even though it was a flop they were still gonna let him drop his album, but Joe refused saying he wasn't ready and that he wanted more than the 11-12 songs limit for the album. After that too much time had passed and they stopped spending money on him and pretty much shelved him.
