Joe Budden, a veteran American rapper and media figure, has named Grammy-winning Nigerian musician Burna Boy the “biggest artiste in the world.”
However, after being included in the remix, Budden did not hold back in voicing his anger with Burna’s choice to gain the rights to the well-known song .
He acknowledges Burna Boy’s position as a worldwide music powerhouse but objects to his transferring ownership of Jamaica-based musician Byron Messia’s popular song ‘Talibans’ to himself after being featured in the remix.
Even when Kanye West did something similar a few years ago, Joe Budden was “vehemently against it.”
In a recent episode of his podcast, Joe Budden Network, he revealed this.
He said, “I’m never a fan of people transferring ownership of already existing songs to themselves after being featured in the remix.
“To the biggest artiste in the world [Burna Boy]. Yeah, I’m not a fan of when that happens. If you made the hit, go work it. If Burna Boy is on it, that should be yours now. But I don’t know the business he Byron Messia and Burna Boy did.
“I never remember that going right for somebody. Designer and Kenye [West], I was vehemently against it.”
