There have been some rumors floating around that Joe Budden got jumped at a strip club over the weekend, and he addressed them during a recent live stream. The personality finally cleared up at least some of the speculation surrounding the incident, revealing what actually took place. He said that while there was an altercation, he wasn't necessarily "jumped."

"N***a cocked back and socked me one good time," he explained, revealing his side of the story. "But then that's all you gonna get." He said that a man snuck up behind him and attacked him, but was only able to get one punch in. According to him, there wasn't even much power behind the punch, so it didn't do a great deal of damage. Budden went on to describe how they were slipping around on the floor because it was wet, and because he was wearing a pair of Uggs that didn't give him a lot of grip.
