Joe Budden may splash his personal business all over the internet, but this is something he probably hoped would be kept quiet. A warrant has been issued for the New Jersey resident’s arrest for failing to pay almost $13,000 in child support payments. Hudson County officials are currently looking for the deadbeat dad around the Jersey City area.

According to, Budden balked on $12,983 and failed to appear at a hearing for the case. Hudson County officials are looking for the rapper during their annual sweep for deadbeat dads, acting on a warrant that was issued earlier this May. This isn’t the first time that the “Pump It Up” emcee has been in trouble for dodging child support payments, having been previously arrested for holding out on child support payments back in August 2009.

Though his personal life may be in turmoil, Budden is currently prepping the release of his upcoming street LP ‘Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst.’ The offering, which features guest appearances from Styles P, Pusha T, Fabolous, Lloyd Banks and more, is set for release October 26.
