Joe Budden - 4 Walls
Eager to release an album for the first time since his ‘03 debut, rapper Joe Budden has decided to give his fans a little appetizer before his sophomore album Padded Room drops this May. From his December-released Mood Muzik 3 mixtape, Jump Off Joey axed three songs (and two skits), added two new songs and re-packaged the disc for the Amalgam Digital release of Mood Muzik 3.5. One of the two new songs, 4 Walls, is everything you’d come to expect from Joe Budden mixtape work; strong lyricism, complex analogies to support his points, and a deep, soulful beat to accent the mood. MM3.5 and a DJBooth exclusive interview with Budden will both be available on February 26.
