Joe Budden - R.I.P.

Tags: Joe Budden
Producer:
J. Cardim
Album:
Unreleased

Joe Budden’s never been a pacifist, but even for him he’s been on a particular rampage lately. The latest addition to Budden’s enormous “tracks where rappers get served hard” catalog is R.I.P., a net-only banger that was the product of a late-night studio session. Produced by regular production partner J. Cardim, who puts together a beat that at first sounds like a montage from a ‘80s sports movie before turning on the juice, R.I.P. appropriately kills any wack rappers that dare stand in its path. In typical fashion Budden drops a notebook’s worth of material on the track, but my favorite line is “I refuse to ball my fist when the heart of New Jersey’s in my hand.” That, my friends, is the definition of dope lyricism. R.I.P. won’t be included on Budden’s upcoming album The Great Escape, which currently has no release date, but in the meantime I think we can all rest assured this is far from the last we’ve heard from Joey.
