Budden is real, he’s not an image sold to the masses. I actually expected this from him. All of this beefin is see through anyways.
Yo some dude just got 10 months for posting a youtube of himself doin graffiti. What’s that terri cloth dude who slapped Buddens boy gonna do? Prob end up snitchin on Ransom. You could tell he was a certified bitch. 5 dudes deep. Get real.
not saying he needed to read your site for inspiration info, but i think many of us commented on what the right thing should be. and he seemed to have thought in the same vein.
thanks joe for being the bigger man. success is always the ultimate revenge. and also thank u for supporting your girl. its refreshing and a rarity to hear a hip hop dude talk about/supporting their girl.
And we’re supposed to be impressed, relieved, enlightened, or generally care about this?? It’s just another asinine installment in an asinine bickering match between a almost has-been and a never-was. I almost feel bad taking these two minutes to comment.
“Faggot, Nigga, Bitch, Pussy” a million times. Soooo articulate – and a what mature guy!
He talks like an animal. Also “back a pussy into a corner” conjured a strange image.
I’ve seen the whole build up of this happening over the holiday season & i’ve been reading blogs on various sites and the general feedback is that joe’s a punk a p***y and so on & so forth but to put my 2 cents in if buddens is a punk for walking away from a situation that could get TOTALLY out of hand then joey i’m wit you im a punk to lol…..shout out to joe beezy you a REAL dude
I dont think you get it. He just check mated Ransom this isnt squashing anything if he is sitting there calling him a faggot and this and that. He basically just made it so that if Ransom replies now Joe can say he was the bigger man and win automatically on that account, and if Ransom dont reply, Joe wins because he was the last one to call him this and that.
Joe wins either way, this wasnt meant to squash anything he just out smarted him.
yea that was dope, If you watch the first video that set the whole thing off Joe was just saying he was lyrically better that dude. Every rapper is supposed to say that. Its not supposed to lead to bullshit like smacking strangers… thats a sucker move.
first off, love the site + check it every day for some healthy snacks ! Second , no doubt joe buddens is being mature about it but most likely they still gonna fight, it’s just a matter of when they bump into each other or when ransom AND peoples maybe his peoples try to put the smack down on joe ! sorry but its turning into some hood shit ! Never let anyone smack you even if you get jumped ! fuck it, that dude is regretting not doin anything !
to Quote Charlie Murphy “even when slapping was fashionable you had a duel, someone had a gun fight after that somebody had to go !!
A part of me thinks he’s covering his ass just in case this shit goes to court, but I hope they squash this shit.
I don’t know many dudes that get smacked in the face and don’t go looking for people with the hammer cocked though. I’m just saying this may be a bit too late……
But Info help me understand something….people like you and Eskay, say you hate this beef, video drama, diss songs, fighting, etc.etc. but yet you posted EVERY video and response and response to that response and diss song, and video reponse to the diss song.
You post this stuff for all to see on your site, if you hate beef so much and it irritates you why give it a voice on your site, if guys like you and Eskay and all “righteous” bloggers dont post beef videos then thats a few thousand people who wouldnt know about the beef, and maybe the beef dies or fizzles out
But when EVERY hip hop blog on the internets has a video up of _____ getting dissed, well guess what now he HAS to respond, and one up that guy because thats just hip hop, from the days of Busy Bee and Kool Mo Dee to Joe and Ransom and then it escalates.
THEN when sombody gets slapped or shot you start with the whole “this beef is dumb, Im irritated, with this beef, they should stop, this is fuckery” Your like the crack dealer who hates what crack is doing to his neighborhood.
But you supported it. You help raise this baby named Beef, fed it, nurtured it, gave it a warm place to stay and then when it gets out of control you all of a sudden hate it and want nothing more to do with it.
There are alot of credible sites that had NO MENTION of this beef between Buddens and Ransom, or any other beef videos, you think it was because they didnt know about it?
I think its because they REALLY dont support it. And I can respect THEM for it.
honestly Info,he should’nt have went to Ransom block and beat him up in the first place.thats the shit people do when you come to their spot and attack em.im a fan of Buddens music but they BOTH acted like some asses in this situation.
Yeah smart move because this shit is getting out of hand,2 grown ass men doing this meatball shit?Both from the same neighborhood?like come on man im just like look at these idiots but i really have a tremendous amount of respect for the guy joe buddens.The growth to say the lease when his album coming out again on amalgam?Im fucking with good dude that was so live of him.
I know this is your blog (one of my favorites =)) & you have the right to post whatever you like, & we all know that you & Joe are cool beans.
That being said, it seems like you’re kinda putting a spin on this, like Budden is such a bigger dude(Ayo?), when he’s actually the one who started the “beef” & he’s the one responsible for homeboy getting smacked. Even this clip comes off as a parting shot from Joe, cause he still disses Ran in the midst of squashing the “beef”.
I dig Budden’s stuff & he’s one of my favorite MC’s/Hip-Hop personalities of the past few years, but this whole “bigger man” thing seems insincere. If Joe was really genuine about trying to settle things down, he woulda talked directly to the cat he has beef with & not release another vlog, which is pretty much what started the “beef” in the first place.
Real cats don’t beef via the internet, playing it up for the crowd, especially with someone who used to be a homie. There ain’t no money involved, so holler at that man, let him know it’s really dead on your part & leave it alone.
I hope this is over, but the way Joe ended it just leaves the door open for Ran to respond.
I’m glad this is over from Budden end because it was retarded and it was obvious what was going on. Budden created a little buzz with his vlog and like he said Ransom’s whole name is based off of this beef. Whenever there’s a Budden there’s gonna be a piggybacker like Ransom. Stuff like this shows he’s not going to respond to every hater, sometimes you gotta keep it moving. The best revenge is success.
I haven’t even watched the video with Ransom retaliating to Budden outside of Applebee’s because the whole premise was stupid. Putting hands on somebody innocent? That shit was beyond ignorant. It seemed like a caricature of the industry you’d see on The Boondocks. The whole thing from his end was turning into a joke. Some cats you just can’t respond to.
Glad this shit is over, even if Ransom responds just keep doing what you do. It’s new cats you’re picking up straight from your videos that don’t know who Ransom is, don’t even give him the time man.
The whole new movement and the records were parallels to shit that I was going through and that’s what put me down to Budden because the first album honestly isn’t one of my favorites. But records like Under The Sun and Dear Diary spoke to me. The vlogs showing him as a regular dude living just how regular cats live or want to live were dope. Then this stupid shit happened and it was almost two steps back. Glad this stupid shit is over because he was cocking the hammer ready to shoot himself in the foot by responding to a nobody.
Hip Hop Police would be at his door if he responded anyway else. The lines of Art and reality merged and now we have a real drama. This seems to be the correct route to solve this issue but in reality its a smoke screen to keep his team out of the microscopic eye of the law. Joe cant control the situation anymore, unless they WWF it and a clear winner comes out there will be resentment and retaliation. This is Co-intel’s residual effect on the community.
@ henry.. ransom is a punk for pulling a stunt like that when he knew clearly that dude who he didnt smack had nothing to do with it. Listen to ransom prev video’s about joey living in cross creek well if you know where he life why didnt he go there and confront joey why go to some random dudes house and show out for vlad tv… dude should of shot the porch up…
@ philly phil, I don’t know if you will read this but I don’t think info is being a hypocrite at all. The majority of her auidence and fans of her blog agree with sentiments about squashing beef and ending nonsense fueds. Its her Job to report it. Check other sites where they are bad mouthing Joe for attempting to end it, then read the comments on this site its a world of difference. Whether we watch the videos or not all of this still happens…Think about it.
Just like somebody wrote yesterday, me also being from Cali had no clue who this Ransom cat was so he made a profit off of Joe in the long run. Like 50 said when beefing with somebody that dude was local. Now all my boys asking about Ransom but i for one will not buy into the beef and want to know more about him. if your music doesnt reach me or move me then im cool on you gangsta. I feel Joe for doing that last VLOG, yea he keep the door open but if Ransom doesnt respond the door will close on its own. The way Joe did it was to let Ransom know it can go there if thats where he wants it to go. “I dont shoot in the air, I shoot at people”, statement lets er’body know what you really do because if you did shoot at people why tell them, word of mouf they will tell people and your “gangsta” image would be legit. Yo Joey Jump-off….. let that *ish ride and blaze the track man.
Since when do you squash beef by calling the dude you beefing with
stupider than me,
Im up here you down there,
bunch of faggot niggas,
I think hes pussy,
back a pussy in a corner,
get a bunch of pussies together,
I beat niggas up like you”
Im no expert but aint this the way you START a beef?
What happed to Im sorry, I respect you as a man, lets get along, lets squash this, lets shake hands
If you think this is sincere you fell for the okie doke
anyone who is bigging up Joe to the point where it looks like their sucking his dick, lets be clear on this.
Joe started it and i’m offended that so many people are dumb enough to take the simple minded approach on this matter.
The facts are joe has a big mouth.
He then shot his big mouth off.
For every action there is a reaction.
Now Someone got smacked because of his actions.
The dude that got smacked is now a viral super star.(infamous)
My guess is he’s probably head hunting right now. I can’t blame him either, but to heap praise on a dude who should now learn from this, and shut the fuck up and just make music smh ain’t my style.
All you budden fans walk away from souljah boy cause Joe did more harm to hip hop then a dance ever did oh and eat a dick
because you seem to enjoy them
This thing just feels fake from Joe Budden. He didn’t do this with the true intention of letting Ransom “win” the beef. He’s doing this to embarrass him. Ransom would be an idiot to shoot at a man waving a white flag. And if Ransom doesn’t reply, everyone will say Joe won the beef altogether.
This is a really smart move from Joe, but it just feels really calculated, knowing a bit of how he is through his videos. And if Ransom continues to diss Joe, Joe can just come back in and start dissing back on some “I tried to be nice, but you kept at it” shit.
I don’t really care for how bloggers sometimes report on these “beefs.” Your default position seems to be that the less popular, less critically acclaimed rappers are desperately unhappy because of their “spot” in “the game,” that they are all obsessed with their position on some imaginary list. Joe Budden revives his beef with Ransom by shooting his mouth off, which he does a lot, but now he gets to take credit for “being the bigger man,” but only after his words set in motion a chain of events that got some random dude slapped up. I guess I should be happy that it wasn’t worse than that. Jay-Z throws a shot a Jaz-O -without whom there would be no Jay-Z, by the way- and when Jaz-O responds, he is told that he is an angry, jealous, “hater” that is trying to revive his career. Now, I can admit that Ransom comes across as irredeemably ignorant. However, just because a rapper ain’t mainstream hot doesn’t mean he isn’t allowed to stand up for himself. Why should he have to take that from a popular rapper? The popular rapper’s audience is bigger and therefore the insult is magnified because for whatever reason he is not satisfied with that and wants to go ahead and pick on a lesser-known. Should said lesser-known let it go at this point? Should he not say anything and let somebody popular shit on him in front of the entire world? That doesn’t seem fair. How come nobody talks about how rappers get big and then become really fuckin’ petty? 50 Cent was the most popular person literally on Earth and couldn’t stop talking about everybody. Jay-Z loves to throw little jabs all day. Now Wayne wants to go at 50, but when 50 was taking shots at him last year, he was quiet. Why didn’t he man the fuck up and fight for his spot on some 8 Mile/Ether shit? Somebody ask him that…Anyway, like I was saying, you don’t have to like them, but stop shittin’ on the underdogs.
I actually agree with you…but I have to qualify a few things. 1) Joe Budden is not the mainstream hot rapper. So in many ways, he and Ransom are are similar turf. This doesnt feel like a david vs goliath situation. (In those situations, I usually favor david…also because david is usually more clever) I think Joe is guilty of many things, feeding into things, and shooting his mouth off definitely. Maybe he didnt know the power of the web when it comes to taking words and raising them into actions. But I think smacking someone unrelated is a different level of wrong. And walking away with a “loss” is a different level of reason.
So I stand by my reaction.
As for Jay-Z and Jaz-O. I don’t feel like I totally understand the nature of their falling out. And I’m pretty confident that Jay-Z wasn’t the best most considerate or appreciative friend that any guy could ever have. That’s just an assumption that I make from other unrelated actions that I’ve heard about or seen.
So I dont think Jaz-O is wrong is feeling resentment or bitterness or anger or sadness at all. I think there’s alot of people who maybe should feel the same way…but they don’t because of the power that Jay-Z wields. Which is understandable too.
But I feel like in some of the videos there is a sense of entitlement that is unbecoming. Birthday cakes and video attacks don’t do justice to what most fans with context (myself included) already know…that Jaz was the Originator, and Jay-Z was the “feature” on their collaboration. Nobody can take that away, but the present war of words sullies it. And Jaz getting mad at folks who have an opinion about the current debate isn’t a good look either. If you put it on the web, shouldnt you accept dissenting reactions?
Do you ever have an opinion of something you don’t approve of? This blog is for my opinions. If I only post things I love then this would be a very very boring place.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but I think there’s a big difference between posting stuff for the sake of fanning the flames, and posting stuff for the sake of denouncing it and allowing dialogue.
If you really don’t notice the editorial content then I’m sorry its not obvious enough and thank you for stopping by.
Info ya boy got his card pulled. I like Joe’s music in all but he says alot of slick shit all the time and then try to blame it on the other party for interpreting it wrong. If you remember he said some slick shit about Saigon same time last year that died down. I don’t care much for Ransom, but you gotta look at it from his angle. He just a regular street dude being called out by a nigga thats not much famous than him. He still lives in the hood and still be in the street. He has to go around niggas dat seen or heard Budden playing the shit out of him. A street nigga only has one thing when you strip away money and bitches and its his reputation, so when Joe was talking all dat shit in front of Applebee’s he should have expected something was going to happen. Im not saying I condone homie getting smacked. If anytrhing he should have made an public apology to homie for getting caught up in the crossfire. this goes to show you how thin the line is between rap beef and street warfare. Chuk is the only that said everything me and niggas was talkin about. big up to him. So Joe Budden being the bigger man give a fuckin break.
this is some real shit but i dont respect joe budden for it cause of the fact that hes the one that started the beef and hes making it seem like its ransoms fault…joe said some shit about him…then he said some shit about joe….he went to ransoms crib…ransom went to his homies crib (cause of course he doesnt know where joe lives)…
I see no problem with Miss Info providing information and opinions, regardless if she like sit or not. Isn’t that the point of having a blog site? And just because Joe Buddens is being the bigger man, doesn’t make him a pussy.
“Walking away doesn’t mean that you’re a quitter, it means that you are intelligent enough to know when to quit.”
Joe Budden gave Ransom the GOLDEN opportunity to make a name for himself by easily challenging Budden to a BATTLE. A lyrical battle…cause all Joe said was that he is on a different level LYRICALLY. It’s like Kobe Bryant saying Lebron don’t compare to him one on one in a game of b-ball. All he had to do was ask for a battle and he would’ve gotten one….but square minded people don’t look at the opportunities.
What is the point of bringing to everyone’s attention that such and such is “Miss Info’s homie?” What does it matter? Is it any less fair because Joe is Info’s homie and Ran isn’t? You think he gets preferential treatment? If you had to report news on your homie what would you do? Report the so-called unbiased news, which btw this ain’t even a news site anyway, it’s Info’s blog it ain’t Channel f’n 5 which is a joke anyway.
Only in the backwards world of hip hop does a statement like this end up on the progressive side of things. And I say that agreeing that Joe’s statement represents a kind of progress and maturity. But its also a reflection of how backwards and immature hip hop is.
We’ve got a long way to go before we arrive at real maturity.
RANSOME IS A PUSSY.IF A NIGGA COME TO YA HOOD.TRY AND DUFF YOU OUT.U GO UPSTAIRS TO YA ROACH INFESTED APARTMENT AND FIRE OFF A LIL 22.AND NIGGA’S DON’T RUN.THEN YOU GET MAD AND GO TO THE HOUSE OF THE NIGGA THAT WAS WITH HIM.AND YA MAN SLAP HIM ONE TIME.AND YA MAN SLAP LIKE A OLD GRANDMA…
