Joe Budden Confirms He Was Punched Following Rumors of Altercation, Denies Being Jumped


Hours after Robinson’s remarks about the alleged jumping, Budden hopped on Instagram Live to address the story.

“Never believe the internet rumor,” Budden shared, before admitting that he was in fact punched while enjoying a night out in New York City.

“N***a popped back and socked me one time,” he explained. “But that’s all you gon’ get. I keep telling y’all, I eat a punch well. Now we gotta go. Now we gotta get it on. I don’t like this internet stuff. Don’t believe none of that.”

He also posted a clip of Kobe Bryant talking about getting double-teamed during pick-up, boastfully saying they have to “send another one.”
