Joe Budden, a veteran American rapper and media personality, has claimed that Afrobeats superstar Burna Boy is the world’s largest artist.
Budden acknowledged Burna Boy’s prominence as a global music celebrity but disagreed with his choice to transfer ownership of Byron Messia’s popular song ‘Talibans’ to himself after being featured in the remix.
He recalled how he felt the same way when Kanye West did something similar a few years ago. Budden stated that he did not approve of those who committed such things.
This was stated by the veteran in a recent episode of his podcast, Joe Budden Network.
He claims that,
” 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
Boyl. 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 Kanye [West], I wad vehemently against it.”
