Joe Budden is officially team REVOLT.
As announced today (May 14) on Billboard, Joe Budden has inked a deal with Sean "Diddy Combs" and REVOLT for a new venture, which includes his own series State of the Culture.
"Finally, Joe Budden is officially part of the REVOLT family," said REVOLT Chairman Sean "Diddy" Combs today. "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."
Due this summer, the new show will find hip-hop's most talked about pundit delivering his signature raw, unfiltered, and informative debates and interviews where he digs deeps with prominent artists, celebrities, and personalities.
"We are excited to launch a new era of REVOLT content with Joe Budden," said REVOLT CEO Roma Khanna. "This is just the beginning of more great things to come as REVOLT leads from the center of hip-hop culture."
The announcement comes after months of hints at a possible partnership. During Diddy's recent New Year's Eve bash, the mogul and Budden stirred up plenty of buzz about a union in a video clip posted on REVOLT's Instagram page. "Are you ready to get money with me?," Diddy told Budden in the said clip. "Are you ready to put this Black excellence on a whole other platform?" Joe Budden comes to REVOLT after hosting the network's 2017 year-end special entitled This Year Was Dope/Trash, with co-host Charlamagne tha God.
"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 Budden. "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."
In addition to his deal with REVOLT, Budden also currently hosts his own groundbreaking podcast, The Joe Budden Podcast, alongside Rory & Mal.
