AceShowbiz - People might have different opinions when it comes to listing the best rappers of all time, but one thing for sure, a now-viral list made by The Brew Podcast is not one that they all can approve. The list has caused an uproar among social media users as Joe Budden is named the third greatest rapper of all time, just behind Jay-Z and Nas.
While Budden has nothing to argue over the list, others surely have a lot to say, especially because the reality TV star ranks higher than some big names in the industry like Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Wayne. "Whoever made this to 50 rap artists of all time list and put Joe Budden as number 3 deserves to get smacked!!" one writes.
"Joe budden third greatest rapper of all time?? Loooool what kind of foolishness," another writes, while someone else makes use of Soulja Boy's viral reaction to Drake by saying, "JOE BUDDEN...3???" One other comments, "There's a lot of eyebrow raisers on here but JOE BUDDEN AT #3 DID JOE BUDDEN'S MOMMA WRITE THIS?"
There was also someone who says, "I'm really going to sleep knowing someone out there put Joe Budden above Lil Wayne. This is crazy." On the other hand, one individual notes, "How on earth is Joe Budden number 3? He shouldn't even be on the list.. ok maybe 3rd from the bottom." Many others believe that Joe is the one who writes the list.
Budden himself has responded to controversy, and he's clearly not happy with people's reaction. "The internet only unifies at my expense lol," he says, before adding in a separate tweet, "& y'all gonna stop disrespecting the greatness of Pump it Up." The "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star is referring to his hit single "Pump It Up", which was featured in "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "You Got Served".
