Rubi Rose Shocks Joe Budden, “I Don’t Write My Own Songs”

Rubi Rose made waves on the Joe Budden Podcast with a candid conversation that left fans buzzing. Known for her start as a video girl, Rose cleared up the online frenzy over her age during the “Bad and Boujee” video. But the real bombshell was about her songwriting process. Despite being labeled a rapper and songwriter, Rose admitted she doesn’t actually write most of her lyrics.

In a blunt exchange, Budden probed into Rose’s involvement in her music ahead of her debut album set for release in 2024. When asked if she wrote her songs, Rose simply replied, “No,” sparking a mix of awkward laughter and applause from the panel. The moment took a humorous turn when Rose flipped the question back to Budden, who confirmed that he does write his own songs.

The topic of ghostwriting in hip-hop has been a hot-button issue, especially with controversies surrounding artists like Drake. Female rappers, in particular, have faced intense scrutiny. In 2022, Coi Leray defended her pen game on Instagram Live after similar accusations.

Rubi Rose’s forthrightness extended beyond her music. She also addressed rumors about gang affiliation after being seen with gang signs and wearing red in 2022. “I’m not actually a gang member,” she clarified on the Big Facts podcast. “I just like throwing their gang signs up because it’s cute. I love the color red. I’m in no way a gang member, though.”

Whether or not Rose’s career has longevity remains to be seen, but her unfiltered honesty is making her a standout in the industry.

Foxy Brown Ignites Feud with Lil Kim by Messaging Her Ex

Foxy Brown Ignites Feud with Lil Kim by Messaging Her Ex

Foxy Brown might not dominate the music charts like she did in the 1990s, but her fiery persona hasn’t dimmed. The rapper, known for her combative spirit and fierce rivalries, has rekindled her long-standing feud with Lil Kim. The latest drama? A provocative Instagram message to Lil Kim’s ex and baby daddy, Mr. Papers.

On June 14, Foxy Brown stirred the pot by wishing Mr. Papers a happy birthday via her Instagram Story. “Happy birthday,” she wrote, adding, “Block spinna 20 years later haaaa.” Mr. Papers responded warmly with, “Daddy love you mama,” setting off a wave of speculation and drama. The fact that Mr. Papers is the father of Lil Kim’s daughter, Royal Reign, makes this exchange even more contentious. Despite their separation, Lil Kim and Mr. Papers co-parent their daughter, a fact Foxy Brown knows all too well and seemingly exploits to irk her rival.

Adding another layer to the drama, Mr. Papers has a history with Foxy Brown. In 2020, he revealed during a stream with Gillie da Kid that he and Foxy Brown had been involved before he got together with Lil Kim. “Before Kim, I used to f*ck with Foxy Brown and all that,” he disclosed, noting that he was only 17 at the time, around 2005.

This isn’t the first instance of public friendliness between Foxy Brown and Mr. Papers. In 2022, Mr. Papers wished Foxy’s daughter, C’yani, a happy birthday on Instagram, saying, “Happy birthday to baby C. Did good @FoxyBrown.” Their ongoing amicability contrasts sharply with the venom between Foxy Brown and Lil Kim, who exchanged barbs as recently as 2023. When Lil Kim claimed her autobiography, The Queen Bee, would outsell the Bible, Foxy Brown couldn’t resist mocking her with a laughing emoji and the phrase “The Bible” on her IG Story.

As the saga continues, it’s clear that Foxy Brown and Lil Kim’s decades-long rivalry is far from over, with social media serving as their latest battleground.
