Joe Budden Says Jhene Aiko Has A Lack Of Growth In Her Music
But one person who isn’t a fan of Jhene Aiko’s recent music is outspoken personality, Joe Budden. He said during an episode of his podcast,
“Jhene needs to go to Great Adventures.”
He then referenced Jhene Aiko’s “Trigger Protection Mantra” that she released in September.
Joe Budden said,
“The last record before this, she just whispered thank you I need to be alone for seven minutes, or calm down for seven minutes.”
He said he actually was intrigued by the song at first. But that didn’t last long.
“I see an artist that I love, Jhene Aiko, I see a time length of seven minutes, that I love. I’m not going to listen to a snippet of that, I’m purchasing that. So the heartache that I felt to have to delete it off my phone, I don’t really delete s*** off my phone once I commit. So… I deleted that. When are we gonna have an honest conversation about what Jhene Aiko’s been dropping? And I’m not saying that because she has me blocked.”
“Triggered is the 30th one of those… I love n***as that keep the same content for a long time. And I love n***as that keep the same sound for a long time. You just have to be good at both… “
He said all of her songs about men she’s in love with but doesn’t want to be with at the time.
“I’m only speaking about all of the Jhene songs that have been released that I have purchased, and the lack of growth in the music. With every song that Jhene Aiko releases in my opinion, she falls lower and lower on the list of women that make that type of music.”
