After his much-publicized split from both Complex and his show Everyday Struggle, rumors surrounding a multi-million dollar deal between Joe Budden and Diddy‘s REVOLT network began to surface. Those whispers got louder when Joe joined The Breakfast Club‘s Charlamagne Tha God for REVOLT’s year-end special, “This Year Was Dope/Trash.”
During REVOLT’s New Year’s Eve celebration Joe and Diddy both appeared to form an alliance. Today (May 14th) that alliance was made official, as REVOLT revealed that Joe has inked a deal with his network. “Finally, Joe Budden is officially part of the REVOLT family,” said Diddy. “Joe has an authentic approach and he’s never afraid to speak the truth. His many talents deserve a platform that pushes the culture forward and we are excited to produce next-level content with him.”
“It was important to partner with a company that recognizes the growing need for our voices and ideas to stream freely without interruption. That was a much prettier way to say, we bout to be with the shits,” said Joe. “Thank you to my business partner Ian Schwartzman and REVOLT for the opportunity to highlight my brutal honesty, passion and integrity. I love REVOLTING!! Together, we will continue to take this thing to heights unseen.”
The first project to come from this union will be Budden’s first talk show, titled State of the Culture. The show is described as something that will “deliver raw, unfiltered, and informative debates and interviews where Budden digs deep with prominent celebrities, artists and personalities.”
State of the Culture is slated to arrive sometime this summer.
