Joe Budden says a legendary rapper charged him $250K just to be featured on a remix to his hit song “Pump It Up”.
Joe Budden did an interview on the “Flip The Script” podcast with Queenzflip and DJ G Money.
During the interview, Joe talked about Jay-Z charging him $250K to do a verse on the remix to his hit “Pump It Up:
”I don’t think it was a big number I think that was his number, that’s my number to rap on this new artist remix, it was just big in my world but it wasn’t a big number.”
Later in the interview, Jow was questioned on whether Jay-Z could have helped Joe more while he was the president of Def Jam Records.
“Today I understand his disposition,” Joe said.
“What other black rapper became the President of a label anywhere and was still an artist, he had to manage his own shit,” he added.
Budden concluded by saying at the time, he was being “self-centered”.
“That was self-centered or more ignorance just not knowing, only looking at it from my perspective and my eyes, yeah that’s wrong.”
MoneyBagg Yo Shares How Much It Costs For A Verse
Last year on Twitter, Moneybagg shared an old conversation from one of his team members that revealed a feature was just $750.
Though, a guest verse from the “Time Today” star will run you $100,000 and not a penny less.
