What makes a legend? It’s positively a thought-provoking phrase that causes division throughout the group. People like Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. are thought-about legends as a result of they have been related even twenty years following their deaths. However, there are a handful individuals which are nonetheless alive that we will comfortably name legends. Rappers like Jay-Z, Nas, Kanye West, and others.

Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Drake had been all talked about. Remy Ma believes that they every have a shot at reaching a legendary title however in relation to Drake, he’ll must “work just a little more durable.”
Some would argue that it appears like Drake has been on cruise management for the previous couple of years. He is aware of methods to craft a success and he is sticking to that method. Depending on who you are asking, it could be mentioned that he isn’t notably making an attempt anymore. Remy Ma believes that he’ll must step it up on the hassle facet to turn into a legend. She mentioned, “Drake – wonderful music, however I really feel like so far as legendary, he is gonna should work just a little bit more durable to get it. Even although I feel he is a dope rapper, all his albums have been nice and he makes nice music. People are gonna give him just a little bit a more durable time.”
As far as music goes, Joe Budden believes that Drake will at all times be thought-about a legend on account of his accomplishments and influence. He argued that Cole and Kendrick have the chance to be legends exterior music, however Drake has already achieved that standing for his artwork.
What do you assume? It’s positively an attention-grabbing subject to debate. Let us know within the feedback. Their dialogue on legends begins at across the 17-minute mark.
Remy Ma dedicated a faux-pas within the eyes the Twitterverse for plausibly denyingR. Kelly’s sexual assault allegations. She made her emotions recognized on a latest episode the REVOLT collection State the Culture, co-hosted by Joe Budden, and hers actually.
Remy’s line questioning revolved across the notion consent. Her argument: “Rapists are solely there for his or her pleasure and don’t eat a** to present the girl pleasure, subsequently, the act between R Kelly and people ladies wasn’t rape however consensual intercourse.”
Remy Ma has no “private perception” into any these situations, not to mention a psychological understanding the ladies implicated in R. Kelly’s affairs (ten instances underage or on the margin acceptability. Remy’s argument hinges on the concept “pleasure” and “consent” are mutually unique, which we all know is definitely an oversimplification interpersonal relationships, throughout the context “communication.”
Understandably, Twitter had a area day with Remy Ma’s operating commentary. This is presumably the second time in as many weeks Remy Ma might have been higher served placing her foot in her mouth, so to talk. The final time “Twitter” deemed her “out line” was her invitation for Non-White individuals to make use of the N-Word at their very own discretion.

The release Eminem’s Kamikaze stirred up a lot conversation. Not only did the album come out the blue but Em came out swinging at several his critics including Joe Budden. Budden has since responded to Eminem on his podcast but it doesn’t look like he has any bars in the stash for Em because he’s “retired.” But if you ask Remy Ma, Joe Budden is just “mad pussy” and “scared to death” what Eminem would hit him back with if Budden were to respond.
REVOLT’s “State Of The Culture” with Joe Budden, Remy Ma and Scottie Beam will be airing later on today but before then, Scottie Beam shared a clip what to expect. In the short teaser, Remy Ma asks Joe why he won’t respond to Eminem’s diss (which Joe refers to as bullshit) while hilariously dragging him through the dirt.
“Is that because he dissed you and you have yet to respond ’cause you mad pussy and you scared to death and he will flame you if you even try, is that why?” Remy asked Joe.
“No Rem, that’s not why,” Joe said in response. “No, no, I like rap where people are saying things, that’s all. And Machine Gun Kelly, regardless what you think about his actual skill set, he had a lot to say.”
Remy Ma seemed to interpreted Joe’s response as a way dodging the question and she continued to press Joe about why he won’t respond to Em.
Peep the clip below. “State Of The Culture” debuts at 5 p.m. on Revolt.
Joe Budden has been a busy man. Shortly after stopping by The Breakfast Club for an insightful interview, Budden ficially announced the release date for his upcoming REVOLT series “State Of The Culture,” all set to premiere on September 10th, airing at 5PM on all subsequent Mondays. For television watchers, the series will air on the following day, Tuesday, featuring exclusive bonus content.
Moreover, Budden’s co-hosts have also been revealed as Remy Ma and Scottie Beam, who will add their voices to discourse on hip-hop, politics, pop culture, and more. It’s certainly an interesting trifecta, and one has to wonder if they’ll reach the chemistry Joe and Akademiks or Joe, Rory, and Mal. In any case, Joe seems to be on a roll lately, and while this marks Remy’s first foray into broadcasting, her insight will no doubt prove appreciated. As for Beam, she has made a name for herself as a television and radio personality, no stranger to the REVOLT family.
In the REVOLT announcement, Joe broke it down as follows. “We’ve all worked extremely hard to get to this point and feel really good about what we’ve built,” said Budden. “Shooting in my hometown Jersey City, NJ helps to cement this as one my proudest moments.” Should you be interested, you can watch the digital premiere when it airs right here.
Sometimes it very much feels like we’re witnessing a cataclysmic duel between Joe Budden and the rest the planet. In this instance, he may have been right to show his displeasure. Budden didn’t exactly take to the way Pete Rosenberg reported on XXXTentacion death soon after his passing, and voiced his displeasure on his podcast. Interestingly enough, he also took fence when DJ Akademiks made similar comments within the same time frame. Akademiks seemingly placed the blame on XXX or rather his antics, on the cause his death. Budden also participated in a brief Twitter joust with Rosenberg, deeming it necessary to tell his fellow media personality to show a little bedside manner when reporting on death.
Rosenberg filed his most scathing response on air with Ebro in the Morning, issuing a gaslighting warning over Budden’s emotional volatility. The Hot 97 host felt Budden was quick to jump on his tail, and would feel differently had he listened to full 20 minute segment where he spoke on XXXTentacion’s passing. “You could have watched the 20 minute clip but instead you tried to play me to your audience just to get a little pop for your podcast,” said Rosenberg.
Rosenberg saved his best for last, sarcastically referring to Budden as a “pro podcaster” and describing his emotional maturity with the following sentence: “Budden’s got a Buddenhive, their emojis would be a cigarette, some timbalands and a syringe.” Ebro sat in silence until it was his turn to speak, choosing to air on the side caution.
“With the XXX story right, Joe has had issues with drugs, Joe also has been jumped and he also had accusations beating women, so maybe in this story he’s sensitive to all that because he also has had issues in the public before,” said Ebro as he tried to balance the discussion before it really turned ugly. Rosenberg had basically reduced Budden’s career to one hot song and his career in journalism a misstep: “You’re finished, just like your career, one song 15 years ago.”
