Joe Budden ft. Crooked I - Sober Up

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
J. Cardim
Album:
Mood Muzik 4

When I was assigned to write about this record today it came with the warning, “I don’t mean to make your Monday more depressing, but….” I laughed, but it proved to be true. Even though Joe Budden is releasing some emotionally charged records for his Mood Musik Mondays series, the latest to drop, Sober Up, has hints of sunshine underneath the drug and alcohol, death and Machiavelli references; that sunshine could be a hellish fire though. Following up to last Monday’s release of Black Cloud, Budden keeps the mood consistently dark and miserable with a side of J. Cardim, whose production gives the beat some bass with a little bit of apocalyptic future. Crooked I, who headlined the DJ Booth showcase at A3C this past weekend, joins in on the funeral of feelings as the featured artist on the track. Honestly, I’m scared of what’s to come next Monday, and even more scared for Mood Muzik 4 to drop on October 26, coincidentally just before Halloween. Is there a Cymbalta-advocacy group that I can share this mixtape with? Crank this one while you’re wandering through that haunted house…that should brighten anyone’s day.
