Talking Points: Joe Budden On His Place In The Rap Game (Pg. 5)

On Coming To Terms With His Place In The Rap Game:

“I think earlier in my career, you could have said this Joe Budden guy is really annoyed, bitter, and fed-up with the industry. But I want to say in the past three or four years, I’ve become okay with everything. I’m very passive aggressive as far as how the industry goes and my place in hip-hop. My problem was that I was always so passionate about hip-hop as a fan.  I’ve come a long a way, but I got a long way to go. No, I’m not content. And I don’t want to say I don’t give a fuck about people, but that’s really what it is. If it doesn’t concern my family or loved ones then I don’t care. That’s comes across extremely self-centered, but it’s the truth.”
