If you take away 'Pump It Up', Joe Budden would be fairly close to being a random rap fan who yells a lot on a podcast.
But 'Pump It Up' exists and was a pretty big hit for Joe in 2003.
Just Blaze produced the track, and during an appearance on Soul Collector, Blaze revealed a fun fact about the 'Pump It Up': It was originally about masturbation. [Jump to 2 minutes.]
"Do you know the original version of 'Pump It Up' was about masturbation?" Just Blaze explained. "You know how in the second verse he's like, 'My jump off doesn't care if I go out so much. My jump off...' Originally it was, 'My hand doesn't worry if I go out so much. My hand doesn't worry about... My hand...' That's a fun fact."
Lest you think he's kidding, Budden's Slaughterhouse bro Royce Da 5'9" has also confirmed this.
This niggas @JoeBudden just told me that "Pump it up" was originally written about Jerking off.. The jump off was his hand. 😂😂😂😭😭— Nickle (@Royceda59) August 17, 2013
