Joe Budden Calls Out ‘No Jumper’ Host Adam22 Over ‘Disgusting’ Kevin Samuels Content Amid His Passing [VIDEO]

Joe Budden recently had a candid conversation with Adam22 on how he handled Kevin Samuel’s untimely death.

As previously reported, controversial influencer and relationship guru Kevin Samuels died of hypertension, which is a severe condition that stems from a higher-than-normal amount of blood pressure against the artery walls. The YouTube star took his final breath on May 5, 2022. He was 57 at the time of his death.

Amid his passing, moments of his Livestreams and interviews were reportedly reshared, causing Kevin Samuels’ content to go viral. Months after his passing, the dating guru appears to continue to be a controversial topic even in his afterlife.

While on his show “The Joe Budden Podcast,”Joe Budden called out Adam22, the creator and host of pop culture-oriented podcast “No Jumper.” Adam22, real name Adam Grandmaison, allegedly used the relationship expert’s passing as an opportunity to share moments from his interview with Samuels, and it was a move that Joe Budden didn’t find appropriate.

During the new episode, the famed host mentioned Samuels, to which Adam said,

“Rest in peace.”

Budden, 41, quickly confronted the podcaster and responded,

“I don’t like what you did after he died.”

The former rapper went on and repeatedly deemed Adam’s actions as


Budden continued,

“The nastiest performance I’ve ever seen.”

Adam, 38, fiercely defended himself and said,

“It’s an insane position for somebody in media to hold.”

He added,

“What is your job as a content creator? Your job is to make content and get that content out to the people that want to see it.”


Budden disagreed, but Adam continued,

“Somebody dies, there’s a huge demand for that content, you re-upload it, people see it on their subscription feed, they click on it because this is a very talked-about thing.”

According to reports, Budden did not side with Adam’s remarks once again and continued to call his viewpoint “disgusting.” The “Pump It Up” rapper shared,

“He didn’t slander his name, he just re-uploaded everything on Kevin Samuels in the moment that he died.”

In Adam’s defense, he explained that almost immediately after Samuels’ death was confirmed, he began releasing clips of the image consultant because people wanted to see that content. Budden disagreed with that and added,

“It was nasty, Adam.”

In addition, Budden criticized the “No Jumper” star for capitalizing on a tragedy prior to Samuels’ loved ones being properly notified. When Adam questioned how he was capitalizing if it is the content that people want, Budden told him to turn off monetization. That reportedly launched another debate regarding having a moral compass as a media professional.
