A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Jersey City rapper Joe Budden on charges he’s in arrears nearly $13,000 in child support and Hudson County officials are on the lookout for him during the yearly sweep of “deadbeat dads,” officials said.

Reports claim he was previously arrested last summer on a child support charge.
It’s not the first time Budden has been in trouble for failure to pay child support. He was arrested on the charge on Aug. 5, 2009, Bartucci said.
