Joe Budden Is Trending Online ... And You Won't Believe Why


Yesterday (August 5th), The Brew Podcast released their list of the top 50 rappers of all time -- and Twitter seemed to be surprised that Joe Budden ended up in the top 5! Jay Z came in at number one and Nas scored the number two spot. Joe Budden came in at number 3, Styles P came in at number four and Black Thought rounded out the top 5.

Other notables on the list include Biggie, who came in at number 8, Kendrick Lamar came in at number 10, Rakim made the number 12 spot, Tupac came in at 15, Andre 3000 scored the 17th spot, while J. Cole made it to number 19.

Drake made the list at number 23 and Eminem -- who many believe is one of the kings of hip-hop, came in at number 28. Snoop came in at 34 and Lil Wayne came in at number 37.

Meanwhile, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Big Pun, Rick Ross, 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes also made the list.


Of course social media had a lot to say about Joe Budden making top 3. Marc Lamont Hill tweeted, "This list is hot garbage. Only two people in the history of the universe are better than Joe Budden? Y'all got Sigel better than Andre? No KRS? know women rap, right? Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte, Jean Grae, Rapsody, Rah Digga, or Nicki Minaj aren't better than any of these dudes?"

IGZRap tweeted, "There is a 99.99999% chance that Joe Budden wrote this list." Meanwhile, someone tweeted, "Can anyone name 5 Joe Budden songs??" Black Dynamite wrote, "Aye nah fuck Joe Budden at 3... BIGGIE AT 8??? ANDRE AT 17?! EM AT 28!! LIL WAYNE AT 37?!?! Whoever made this list needs to be in prison effective immediately."


Joe responded to the hoopla, saying, " I ain't make that list but i ain't arguing against it lol 😂." He added, "& y'all gonna stop disrespecting the greatness of Pump It Up 🙄."
