The second the Internet caught wind of footage of Joe Budden sprinting through traffic to catch some teenagers in a car who had been harassing him, it knew it had struck meme gold.

Budden is now capitalizing on his recent memehood with merchandise commemorating the incident. For $30, fans can buy a hat or t-shirt with the Runnin’ Budden logo on it from the store on the rapper’s official website.
Though Budden considered the situation with the teens to be dangerous, he has mostly laughed it off.
These are some of the greatest memes ever, but I truly hope u kids don’t make running up to ppl’s homes a thing. It’s dangerous.
