Veteran American rapper and media personality, Joe Budden has dubbed Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy as the “biggest artiste in the world.”
He said he recognises Burna Boy’s status as a global music force but doesn’t appreciate him transferring the ownership of Jamaica-based artist, Byron Messia’s hit song ‘Talibans’ to himself after he was featured in the remix.
Joe Budden said even when Kenye West did something similar some years back, he was “vehemently against it.”
He stated this in a recent episode of his podcast, Joe Budden Network.
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.”
