The music industry is forever evolving and the question comes up, what makes a superstar and who are the superstars today? Joe Budden gets in a heated discussion on his podcast and debates this exact question.
With social media being prevalent in how artists are viewed and how they gain popularity, the former rapper says, “you’re not a superstar if you can’t sell an album” referring to Megan Thee Stallion. The discussion started when he talked about a tweet by Punch when he asked who are the superstars in rap besides, J.Cole, Kanye, Kendrick Lamar etc.
They all arguably consider the stats and facts to the game and name artists like Cardi B, Travis Scott and more. But when Meg was brought up the “Pump It Up” rapper drew the line. “She ain’t sold s**t.”
