After teasing the alliance at the beginning of the year, REVOLT TV announces this week that Joe Budden has officially signed a deal to join the network Diddy built.

The rapper-turned-personality will host, create, and executive produce a new talk show called “State of the Culture,” which will premiere this summer.

REVOLT describes the show as “raw, unfiltered, and informative debates and interviews” with celebrity guests.

“Finally, Joe Budden is officially part of the REVOLT family,” Diddy said. “Joe has an authentic approach and he’s never afraid to speak the truth. His many talents deserve a platform that pushes the culture forward and we are excited to produce next-level content with him.”

“It was important to partner with a company that recognizes the growing need for our voices and ideas to stream freely without interruption,” added Budden. “That was a much prettier way to say, we bout to be with the sh*ts. Thank you to my business partner Ian Schwartzman and REVOLT for the opportunity to highlight my brutal honesty, passion and integrity. I love REVOLTING!! Together, we will continue to take this thing to heights unseen.”

After a successful one-season run as co-host of “Everyday Struggle” at Complex, he left after he was unable to come to terms on a new contract.

In addition to his upcoming REVOLT show, he also hosts his own popular podcast, “The Joe Budden Podcast.”
