This past weekend Total Slaughter had their Battle Rap PPV going down with Joe Budden vs. Hollow Da Don main event. During his battle, Joe Budden was boo’d by a few of Hollow’s fans which made him put the mic down during his round. Everyone feels that may have costed him the battle in general. Here’s Budden reason for putting his mic down:
It didn’t get to me mentally at all, which is the thing,” he said. “In my profession, you don’t rap over boos. It’s like Rapper 101 to know that if you at a show and n***as is booing, ‘Ya’ll, go ahead and boo. I got paid already.’ I’m either gonna wait for ya’ll to stop or I’m getting the f**k outta here. But in battle rap it’s very different. You gotta deal with it. You gotta rap over it. You can’t let it look like it is affecting you. It wasn’t that I was mad they was booing. I don’t give a f**k about boos. But my thing in my head was, ‘My mic is already bad and I really do have some shit in this third if I could just get it out.’ I can’t fight a bad mic and a million people booing. But once you threaten people that are booing, they’re just gonna boo more. That’s exactly what happened.
What do you guys think? Is this a plausible reason for him to put his mic down and surrendering the third round? Leave us thoughts below.
