Joe Budden’s brainchild, State of the Culture, has flourished since its inception last September. With Diddy’s co-sign and a strong bevy of hosts in tow, State of the Culture has been in high-demand and because of that, REVOLT has ordered 10 more episodes for the hit series.
The show’s hosts Budden, Remy Ma, Scottie Beam and Brandon “Jinx” Jenkins will not only provide an additional episode on Monday (Nov. 19), but they will also dish out a special end-of-the-year episode recapping 2018 on Dec. 3. The remaining episodes will take place in 2019.
Budden, who also serves as the show’s executive producer, gushed about the series’ early success in a statement to Billboard. “We had a lot of fun during the first 10 episodes and the response has been nothing short of amazing,” said Budden. “I look forward to improving on what’s already been built. Thank you Puff, REVOLT and most importantly the fans. See you soon.”
Diddy echoed Budden’s excitement and shared his thoughts on extending SOTC with Billboard, as well. “Joe and I worked tirelessly for months to create a one-of-a-kind show that the culture would love, and the response to State of the Culture has been overwhelmingly positive,” he said. “The culture has a point of view and I want to deliver it. I’m all about giving the people what they want, so more raw and uncensored content through the lens of hip-hop is coming your way.” [Read More Billboard News]
