West Coast rapper Game recently acknowledged one-time rap rival Joe Budden‘s new venture into VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” reality series, applauding both of their efforts to add a few extra dollars to their name.
Asked about his upcoming reality series and Budden’s by a Twitter user, Game assessed their focus on paper-chasing.
“RT @goodmoosic: So I hear Joe Budden on Love & HipHop & @thegame is doin a show too, whats goin on with these bruddas – we gettin $$$ bum,” Game tweeted October 12th. (Game’s Twitter)
Prior to accepting a new offer, Budden recently revealed turning down a shot at appearing in VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” season one.
In an interview with Jenny Boom Boom from Hot 93.7/Hartford Budden confirmed he will be appearing on the new season of Love and Hip-Hop New York this winter. Before his announcement, there have been persistent rumors that he would turn up on a show like Love & Hip-Hop New York, and in fact he was asked back during season one. “They called me for season one,” he recalled. “I turned that opportunity down.” But love can change anyone’s tune, and recent rumors that his ex Tahiry will be joining the Love cast for the new season make all the difference for Budden. “If Tahiry is on there, I’d expect to get a call,” he stated. “Tahiry is somebody I love, so I would do that.” (CBS Local)

In September, the former G-Unit member admitted money played a key role in doing reality television.
“We got a good lil’ deal, we got d*mn near a mil, so that’s what really made me do it, it’s that wifey kept complaining about, you know, she’s a school teacher, she makes a good six figures but she wanted some more money, man, so she talked me into doing it and she got her money and didn’t really care about my end. She kept most of the money and left me with about $100 grand. She got about $900 [thousand]. So yeah, that’s how it happened.” (“Jenny Boom Boom TV”)
