(AllHipHop News) One of the most popular podcasts on the web is making a big move. Joe Budden, along with co-hosts Rory and Mal, inked a deal to exclusively broadcast The Joe Budden Podcast on Spotify.
Beginning on September 12, the Hip Hop-based show will debut twice a week. New episodes will drop every Wednesday and Saturday.
"As we continue to expand and diversify our content slate, teaming up with The Joe Budden Podcast is an exciting move for Spotify,” says Courtney Holt, Head of Spotify Studios. “We can’t wait to bring Joe’s loyal fans more of what they already love, and offer the opportunity for new hip-hop fans to discover him and listen.”
In addition, Budden's full back-catalog is now streaming on Spotify. The old podcasts will also continue to be available on all previous platforms.
"I’d like to thank Spotify for this tremendous opportunity to take The Joe Budden Podcast and podcasting in general to heights never before seen. Our partnership is extremely humbling for me and adds yet another chapter to a career full of plot twists," says Budden. "This highlights a new way of thinking & a corporate 'head nod' to the shift taking place before our very eyes. I’m even more thrilled to embark on this journey with some of my closest friends & ppl i love."
The retired emcee continues, "The podcast has been a great amplifier for my voice but fast growing into a platform for more & more artists to share their own personal feelings/stories/experiences. I’m anxious to get started & optimistic about what’s to come. While companies are spending endless amounts of dollars and research to find out what consumers want, how they want it & who they want it from, we’re in an space where all you have to do is listen to the ppl. Again, thank you Spotify for listening."
