(GEMS RADIO)– Joe Budden has criticized Megan Thee Stallion, saying she can’t sell albums and she is not a superstar. Budden was speaking in a recent episode of his “The Joe Budden Podcast,” where he spoke his mind about the female rapper.

“You can not be… I am telling you, You’re not a superstar if you can’t sell an album, what the f**k are we talking about right now?” said Joe. “What stops her from being a superstar if we’re taking out sales? She ain’t sold sh*t. Got every brand deal in the world, but also has all the backing from mad different people. She’s got a lot going on. That’s the game today.”

Endorsement Deals Is Not Stardom

Budden noted how modern artists keep getting endorsement deals and brand partnerships than back in the day.  According to the former rapper, this shouldn’t determine whether they should be regarded as superstars.

He continued, “Griselda has a lot going on. There’s mad artists that have a lot going on, your management team as got to be a whole fucking team of people. You got to have a team of know-it-all people.”

The podcaster further claimed that Megan Thee Stallion’s music does not get much attention as Adelle’s.

“You still got to know how to sell a f**king album. When Adele come out, you gotta move. When ni**as come out, you gotta move. When a superstar comes out, you rest of you, mortal me minion ni**as have to move. Nobody does that for Lil Nas X, nobody does that for the seven Meg Thee Stallion releases that dropped over the past two years. What are we saying?

Megan Thee Stallion Wins

Despite the harsh criticism by Joe Budden, Megan continues to see massive success in her music. Over the past two years, she has seen her star rise with two No.1s on Hot 100 Billboard Singles with “WAP,” which she collaborated with Cardi B, and “Savage” ft Beyonce.
