Radio host, author, and media personality Rude Jude made his Stern Show debut this morning.
WE KNOW HIM FROM HIS INTERVIEW WITH CHET HAZE
You might remember him from a few months back - Howard played clips of his now-infamous interview with Tom Hanks' rapper son 'Chet Haze'.
While Chet is a wealthy white kid, he tries to sound very black. Jude is white and sounds black too, but at least he grew up in Detroit.
Monday at 8am Jude Angelini x Howard Stern. Can't wait! I been working towards this for 17 years! https://t.co/aVEEsVYa5w

BIRTH OF 'RUDE JUDE'
He got his nickname 'Rude Jude' when he was hired to appear on the Jenny Jones Show, insulting the guests and audience members. His persona clicked with the show's audience and he was asked back many times.
HOOKING UP WITH EMINEM
One fateful night, a promoter recognized Jude from the show and offered to let him introduce Eminem onstage.
He wound up in the lyrics to Eminem's 'Drug Ballad' and hot-footed it to Los Angeles to make it in show business.

After pitching a few radio show ideas to Eminem's manager, 'The All Out Show' on SiriusXM Shade 45 was born.
Jude made an impact at the company, becoming one of the most popular DJs here - with audiences and SiriusXM staff.
