The American rapper had playfully taken to his Twitter page on Monday, 12th August 2019, saying: “If nobody told you by now, that Burna Boy album is ridiculous.”
If nobody told you by now, that Burna Boy album is ridiculous
Joe Budden’s submission expectedly drew the ire of music fans in Nigeria who slammed the American rapper on social media.
A Nigerian music fan Oshomah @JohnNetworQ who was the first among many to fire a salvo at Joe Budden wrote thus:
“Ridiculous enough for you to mention right ? No offense but ur entire career is ridiculous G. This is bitterness of the highest level. @burnaboy has gotten more recognition in ur home soil than u can ever wish for. Stop the HATE joe. And yeah, he richer too.
Joe Budden calmly replied @JohnNetworQ when he wrote thus on Twitter; saying: “Ridiculous meant amazing. Enjoy your day.
Ridiculous meant amazing, enjoy your day.

Reacting to Joe Budden’s reply to @JohnNewtworQ another Twitter user @NwanneAnaedo wrote thus; “Stop confusing us with grammar Joe”.
Joe Budden said the meaning of 'ridiculous' which he has used to qualify Burna Boy's album, African giant means 'amazing'.
I'm still flipping through dictionaries online because this ridiculous meaning is not ridiculing very well. ?

However, another Twitter user @Barishadness1 who got the drift of the rapper’s comment to mean Burna Boy’s album was hot wrote saying:
“Simple English…folks is getting it twisted….finish High school and stop bulshitin…Ridiculous in different meanings….Google or find a dictionary to know more about it….Salute Joe..
Meanwhile, some Nigerians who still don’t understand the gist has continued to bash the American rapper.
If a nigga hating call him JoE BuddeN (PUSSY)!!. Burna Boy is AN AfricaN GIANT and also a Young Rich Nigerian. By the end of this year, he'll probably worth more than your entire Career. You're always hating and I'm happy because MiGoS fucked you up.

If Joe Budden had continued his statement, we would have understood the context. How can you say “Burna boy’s album is ridiculous “ and expect people to be able to decipher it means amazing

Or she is currently on hallucinogens. Context matters. If Joe Budden (his problematic nature aside) wished to bash Burna Boy's album, there are numerous words he WOULD have used instead of "ridiculous". This wasn't an exam, it wasn't a US congressman or an English professor /2

Joe Budden has nothing to gain from bringing up Burna Boy, just to diss his album lol!
If he says he didn’t mean to diss him, then he didn’t mean to diss him.
They don’t fish in the same pond.

So all it took was for Joe Budden to hail Burna Boy’s album for y’all to change his status to "legendary" ??? We dick ride soooo hard in this country ???
Where was that energy in 2012???

Daddy K, apparently you guys didnt get the joke. Ridiculously was said "tongue in cheek". I apologize if TY feels bad . Check out Joe Budden's tweet on BurnaBoy's album to understand the joke.
— Feyipitan Ojomo Esq. (@FeyitheLaw) August 13, 2019
That tweet was too short to know if it was negative or positive.. he literally just said “burna boys album is ridiculous”… and it’s Joe Budden!!! Let’s not forget he’s literally the king of shade and dissing people… I think it was expected it’d be seen as negative

Honestly I ain’t gon front I didnt know what Joe Budden meant by ridiculous. I wasn’t about to jump into conclusions but man is known for hating soo ??♂️??♂️??♂️. Joe Budden could’ve easily said Burna Boy’s album wack if that were his opinion and it wouldn’t change any real thing.
— Yella_ (@YngKln) August 12, 2019
Joe budden wasn't hating on burna boy as far as I'm concerned… First time I read the tweet I saw it as "good" ridiculous , then Joe came out and even clarified his position
— ❤ Ours is the triumph ❤ (@M3tAt3M) August 12, 2019
Joe Budden tweets Burna Boys album is ridiculous.. You carry your Naija mentality to insult him…. only for Joe to reply that ridiculous meant Amazing in US Music industry Parlance.
You are still forming bad guy…instead of carrying your L jeje

Anyone who read a negative meaning into that Joe Budden’s tweet about Burna Boy, needs to stay out of the internet.
