    "Sometimes you gotta show the kids you really ran with the Roc"

    Note to Jay Z, THIS is a triple entendre:

    1- Joe "ran with the ROC"... Joe Budden's love/hate relationship with Rocafella and Jay Z
    2- Joe "ran with the rock"... Budden chasing those Drake stans down the street with giant rocks in his hands
    3- Joe "ran with the rock"... implying that Joe moved weight on the street corner back in the day

    Fire lyrics.

    3 is a reach.

    I aint the biggest Budden fan, but I've never heard him claim to be a crack dealer.

    He said he did for a while in his podcast, but its Joe so there's a 20% chance its true. He denies doing crack but for whatever reason prefers to be called a dusthead.

    Everybody sold crack in the 90s his past as a dust head makes him a prime canindate to know where the crack is at

    When actually you think about how long Joe Budden been in the game it's sad how underwhelming his career is. I remember when dude first came out on clue mixtapes- that shit had to be more than 15 yrs ago. *feels old*. Skill wise, he had potential to be at least what Fab was. Not sure if it was his work ethic or him just not choosing to go commercial.

    He was black balled...

    This n he fell in a weird space..his true fans loved that " mood musik" but the label wanted club hits(which he could actually make) n he eventually just stuck to making musik for his core fans IMO

    He was too vocal about his gripes with def jam, but def jam fucked up a lot of good projects before and after him. Damn shame when there's enough food for everyone
