Joe Budden Preps Sophomore Album For Spring Release

With his latest mixtape Mood Muzik 3 still scheduled for a retail release on February 26, New Jersey rapper Joe Budden has announced that he is partnering up with Boston-based indie label Amalgam Digital to release his official sophomore album Padded Room. Billboard.com has confirmed that Padded Room, Budden’s first album since his 2003 self-titled debut, will be released some time this spring. “It’s complete,” Budden told Billboard. “It basically will be in the same vein as Mood Muzik, just a little more structure and the mood will probably be a little lighter. I’m definitely pleased with the direction that it’s going.”

        • DevilintheFlesh

          i think u may be judging someone that you have never really much listened to but if ur a true rap head (and i dont think u are because u just named the most pop ass group of people that came to ur head) check out these tracks and tell me im wrong:

          calm down
          walk with me- classic
          last dayz (freestyle on Green Lantern)
          and… send him our love

          Get back after u hear em

        • BIG O

          whats funny is that you told me to check out walk with me in which he used a jay z line(im akward i box lefty)when he just tried to diss.like i said he is weak all around.hes like joell ortiz who is a beast lyrically but couldnt but together a song to save his life.i know phonte could murder him easy.and your right im not a rap head im a true hip hop head.cuz that list is some out the best out right now no question

        • DevilintheFlesh

          like what he said about that nigga J on last dayz? that bill parcells shit! with beanz and freeway in the room nonetheless.

    Finally! Too many niggas was sleepin on my dude. Def Jam is retarded.

    • BIZZLE

      I’M STILL SLEEPIN ON THIS LAME NIGGA..ZZZZZ

  • Scottie Pimpin

    Oh my god, why is this loser still around?

    The guy cannot rap, he’s probably broke, and was never that good anyway. Notice how it was always the beats that made him – “pump it up” had a nice beat from the now washed up Just Blaze.

    Since then Joe Budden has been exposed as a former male private dancer and ex-crack addict.

    The guy has the most annoying voice ever, and I bet the powers that be at Def Jam couldn’t wait to drop his lame ass.

    No one cares about this loser any more, he should go back to smoking crack – we would all be happier if he did that.

    I’m not even gonna bother downloading his new album – it’s hot garbage as far as I am concerned.

  • Kenneth L.

    This guy does nothing but whine about people doing him wrong he should have been went indie. I have given this guy an honest chance and I’m pretty sure this album will go copper just like his last joint. Just like Big O at the top ***in Riley from Boondocks voice*** BOO NIGGA YOU GAY!!

  • moresickaMC

    his debut was a$$…hope this ones better

  • MJ23

    Joe Budden is a nobody. He just a Internet Rapper. Cassidy will murk this lame

  • dub

    “man i love the east coast, but fuck joe buddenz” r.i.p. Billboard
    *get my pool in the background*

  • Fresh.

    I like Buddens. I think he’s the shit. Better than all of these Lil wayne wannabees, but Def Jam putting out his album wouldn’t have been a good move for them. They never would have recouped their investment. The reason why his buzz is this strong, is in part because he’s a hot rapper but also because he left Def Jam. One couldn’t have happened without the other.

    That album will be a classic I’m telling you! Joe Budden is definitely one of the best rappers out there right now. I’ll admit that I didnt like him when he came out with pump it up and fire. But I heard mood muzik 2 and realized that joe is nice as hell. I went back and listened to his debut and that album goes hard as well.

  • fireforreal

    Maddolies your a certified heater and your a jim jones fan huh ? If joe buddens was overrated it’s by the streets not the critics because dude is not a commercial success at all.It took his one and only album over a year and a half to go gold and even though his second album was delayed from 2004-2007 he still was spitten fire on every mixtape and hands down brought out the best mixtapes(moood muzik 2 and 3)That anyone has ever brought out.He’s just now gettin his props and I bet you can’t name another artist who as far as the streets has brought out better mixtapes and underground shit in the last 2 years.

  • fireforreal

    I just thought about it.You must be that haten ass,wack ass nigga Ransom. Hey how you doin nigga, I think that was clever how you started beef with your mentor because nobody ever gave a fuck about you now your online dissin your mentor.

  • Maddolies

    Actually Im a NaS & Jay Fan.
    And Why U Cumin At Me Being A (Homo)Internet Thug All Of a Sudden? Did I Come at You and Call U A Weak Ass Nigga? No Son.

    damn…i never thot the (current) best rapper alive had this many haters

  • Ado

    Most of buddens shit has been good in my opinion, I know it may make some of you have to think which leads to you thinking Lil wayne is better. But blaze and just listen to the lyrics. For dude trying to talk shit about Budden using a line from Jay, who cares? Have you ever listened to all the recycled lines Jay has used?

  • Maddolies

    Suck My Bat Bitch!! Lol

  • http://www.myspace.com/rcvthamc RCV tha MC

    I can’t wait till his Sophomore release. I’m a huge fan. Joey is already a legend in my mind. The Mood Muzik series is always something to look forward to. MM2 was my favorite one.
