Cyn and Joe are proud parents
Joe Budden had a wild 2017. On top of his show Everyday Struggle launching, the provocative retired rapper and talk show host found himself at the center of several beefs and a wild moment at the BET Awards. The Budden animosity reached a point where rappers were wearing personal gear telling him to go jump in a lake and even shouting him out on songs like Migos’ “Ice Tray.”
Even so, that’s probably not what Budden is going to remember most from 2017 as his son was born in the late night and early morning hours of Dec. 14/15. Budden’s girlfriend Cyn Santana went into labor yesterday and they announced this morning that their baby boy had arrived.
“Bout to meet the love of my life with the love of my life!!!! You’re too dope God,” wrote Cyn on the way to the hospital. “Shout out to all the mommas…. god bless y’all for real.”
She followed that up with a black and white photo of her newborn son clutching her finger.
“Happy birthday baby boy. We love you so much,” she wrote.
Budden celebrated his son’s arrival with a series of photos. He posted his own father holding him in 1980, a photo of himself holding his first-born son in 2000 and then a photo of himself holding the latest addition to his family in 2017.
While it was all incredibly sweet, Joe Budden is still Joe Budden. He posted a live Instagram video from the delivery room playfully needling Santana because she was arguing with him about whether or not a carseat was ready in the car before the baby had arrived.
“I’m spending the night in the hospital trying to be supportive,” he said, laughing. “She talking bout a f**king car seat. What car seat?”
“You push,” he added. “You got s**t to worry about over there.”
While the internet was full of congratulations for the new parents, a few couldn’t help but get shots in (something Joe would no doubt appreciate). Several took the opportunity to point out Joe’s long-running beef with young rappers, a group he collectively calls “The Lils.”
“It’s gonna be so funny if Joe Budden newborn son grows up to be a mumble rapper that wears colorful dreads,” wrote Twitter user @Bdell1014
Others pointed out that the birth might actually make the notoriously cantankerous Budden crack a smile for once.
“Happy for Joe Budden I know this was first time in years his angry a** was filled with joy @JoeBudden,” wrote Twitter user @JacobG4711.

Will this new development push Joe toward a kinder, genter stance? It’s highly unlikely. He clowned Chance The Rapper’s soft turn since the birth of his daughter mercilessly on an episode of Everyday Struggle. The dragging was so severe that Chance himself felt the need to respond in an interview with Robyn Neal.
“There’s this idea that you have to make things for the culture and push the culture forward and it’s like, ni**a I am the culture. Whatever decisions I made, they’re made and I also f**k with Joe Budden, I know he has to do his thing. He has a talk show now but before he was an artist and he got to do whatever he wanted. Now he has to go to his job and clock in and clock out and provide his insight. Ni**as gotta do what they gotta do.”
