    I hate the fact that he’s realeasing it digitally. I one of those rare niggas that actually buys albums. I don’t even fuck with limewire(not as much as yall niggas do, anyway). But niggas gon pass this shit all around the internet, you aint the eagles Joey.

    • J Killer

      The album is being sold both physical cd and digital(I don’t mess wit limewire either like to keep my Zune organized). Also, if ya going to hate on Joe do it on ur on fucking time. The nigga went through a lot of shit at Def Jam n he’s been putting in work. If u are a true hip hop fan u should be glad that a lyricist is coming up. Stop hating on rappers n open ur mind n listen to what all rappers have to say.

        I aint hatin on Joe, I fucks with dude’s raps. I don’t see where you detected any hate in my statement. Just clarifying.

  • black

    can’t wait for it but he is not going to put any of the who songs on it come on joe all of them were fire I need those songs on the album

  • dutchess

    I cant wait for Joey to drop everybody should kno by now that hes the future. We’ll I hope he is anyway because its looking kind of hopeless right now.I used to be so excited about music and tuesdays going out not knowing what to buy first, now its the same old shit

  • Peru

    Budden is one of my favorite rappers because of his lyrics and delivery. Dude got content that I can relate to and his rhyming structure is smooth. His words are constructed to where the syllabus of the words fit in his patterns. He can actually flow to a beat. I will say he needs to hook up with better production, but his lyrics and flow make the bad beat selection tolerable. Cant wait til the album drops.

  • matrix

    Joe is bar none the hardest out right now… I even went as far as saying he’s the best ALL AROUND rapper of all time. There’s not one rapper that does EVERYTHING like JOE let alone at the level that he does everything at. Dude is an unparalleled artist for real… ‘One’

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    Buddens my nigga, but this shit might sell another what 700-1000 copies like the last mixtape, hopefully not,the touch and go shit is kinda old to the internet community but if he can push that shit on a television station(u know put some money in 106&park pockets)he might do fat joe’s #’s in any case shit aint really bright for good hip hop but I’ma still support that shit.

    • DA TRUTH

      i think its pretty good for a FREE mixtape to sell 700-1000 copies, and seeing his only retail album sold more than gold that pretty d*mn good.

  • HERM

    The Mood Muzik series are all hot albums. I’ll definitely cop. That Blood on the Wall joint is fire too.

    • J Killer

      Hell yeah he went hard on Prodigy. “Washed up 90′s nigga now a gangsta blogger.”

  • Cam Jones

    For all the people that say Budden sucks or is wack take a good hard listen to “Who Killed Hip Hop” he is talking exactly about you functioning retards.

  • jig

    He’s mediocre at best.
    He must not’ve gotten that Def Jam memo
    that his career is over.

    • chad bro chill

      wow ur a retard if budden is mediocre is lil wayne the best rapper alive

  • Q
