Joe Budden - Black Cloud

Posted about 6 years ago
Producer:
Zalezy & Megaman
Album:
Mood Muzik 4

Joe Budden’s Mood Muzik mixtape series has always been a personal favorite of mine. From the tortured genius of its second volume, to the raw emotion of the third, the Mood Muzik franchise has shown that hip hop listeners can’t resist hearing Budden’s burdens on wax. Now, with the highly anticipated fourth installment rearing its ugly head, it seems like Joey has taken a leaflet out of Kanye’s “Book of Emo Rap” and started a weekly song series, Mood Muizk Mondays, and the first record off that new series is the aptly-titled Black Cloud. Producers Zalezy and Megaman create a storming beat that perfectly paints the song’s message in dark, brooding, moody and angry colors. Double that with Budden’s lyrical angst (“I’m a different person / with nothing to overcome and I miss the burden”), along with the occasional Jason Williams joke, and you’ll end up drenched in the musical downpour that is Black Cloud. With excellently depressing joints like this, I am sure that fans will ironically be happy to see Mood Muzik 4 finally drop on October 26, digitally and November 9, in stores.
