Editors’ Notes

Repping for Jersey City, Joe Budden has had an unusual career, marked by giant hit singles (specifically his breakout hit "Pump It Up"), major-label deals achieved and lost (he was originally on Def Jam before going indie), well-publicized mental illness/drug addiction issues, and an unlikely super-group with other once-signed, on-the-cusp-of-superstardom rappers Crooked I, Royce Da 5'9”, and Joell Ortiz. Through it all, he has maintained a fiercely loyal, extremely dedicated cult following who hang on his every verse and continue to buy and/or download anything he releases. Though he's only put out two actual studio solo albums, he's dropped three digital full-lengths, one group project with Slaughterhouse, and now this, the highly anticipated fourth installment in his ongoing Mood Muzik series. The crossover-ready single "Follow My Lead" fuses a melodic sung hook with contemplative rhymes about being over the money/fame/cars/groupies that come with being a celebrity, "Remember the Titans" teams him up with Lloyd Banks, Fabolous, and Royce, while "Sober Up" finds him going off alongside Crooked I over a super slick J. Cardim synth beat.

Without exageration, this is the best rap album I have heard in a decade

The fact that this man continues to remain relatively unknown (granted, his fame certainly has increased) is incredible. This album combines lyrical mastery, a smooth but rugged flow and the undeniably best aspect - Budden paints his emotional struggle that combines classic soul with the storytelling ability of a B.I.G. Yes, I said that.

Some might be better lyrically, battling, have a smoother flow but nobody puts it together so seamlessly as Budden.

Joey

One of the few artists of recent times that actually paint a picture with his rhymes! Also an emotional artist! Mm4 is classic!

Biography

Born: August 31, 1980 in New York, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The ridiculous success of 50 Cent in early 2003 opened the floodgates for other street-level, mixtape-bred rappers, one of whom was Joe Budden, a Jersey City rapper with a distinct loose-cannon style molded from years of freestyling. Born in Spanish Harlem and raised in Queens, Budden came of age across the Hudson River in Jersey City, which he proudly continued to rep in his rhymes despite its somewhat unsavory reputation relative to more traditional hip-hop breeding grounds like Harlem, Brooklyn,...
