(AllHipHop Rumors) Joe Budden is the man with the golden voice! He's used to get getting paid to use it - whether it is via rapping or podcasting! Kudos to him! However, being in the limelight also has a down side. People hang on to your every word and they fact check like a MF! This is the issue that Joe Budden faces right now.
Joe Budden suggested on one of his many podcasts than Kawhi Leonard's father was in jail for murder. "Guess who's a killer? Kawhi's dad...it's a fact," Buddy Budden said. Well, he's not in jail. He's dead. Oddly, it was his co-host Rory that corrected him and caused the storm. "That's false information, Joe, His father, Mark, was shot and killed January 18, 2008, at the Compton carwash he owned. He may have been involved in something, but he is now passed away," Rory said. This resulted in the sudden swell of drama yesterday that is now trending on social media now.
And people are ready to cancelled Joe. We know that won't and can't truly happen. The attention alone is priceless.
Now there is a reason that people are so mad with Joe Budden. Kawhi Leonard is a good dude that has lead the Toronto Raptors to the NBA Finals. He has good will out in these streets, but Joe continued to suggest that his dad had bad will. Budden talked about Leonard’s father "getting busy" in the streets. Kawhi Leonard’s father was murdered before he even graduated from high school. Seems pretty insensitive to me.
And yet, Joe doubled down on his statement. "I read before he left (died), he was getting busy (in the streets). And to my knowledge, I think the uncle's gettin' busy," Joey said.
