For years, Joe Budden has been a highly-discussed figure in hip hop, whether the people loved or hated him. In the midst of all the hate, and album delays, Joe Budden went into the studio and came out with his Mood Muzik series. Joe Budden transformed himself into being one of the hottest mixtape rappers in the game, as he fought to release his sophomore album.
Joe Budden soon teamed up with Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, and Royce da 5’9. In many ways, the four rappers’ careers mirrored each other. Joell Ortiz had been signed to Aftermath and released his debut album under Koch Records. The wait on his Aftermath debut was enough to make him leave the label. Crooked I had deals with both Death Row and Murder Inc., but both labels were on the decline when he was added.
The four rappers joined together and became Slaughterhouse, one of the most-popular underground rap crews in the game. Joe Budden has been the front man, of sorts, for the crew, as they released their debut album under Koch Records and were then signed by Eminem to Shady Records. Two years since their deal, fans are waiting on their Shady debut, welcome to: OUR HOUSE. After yesterday’s appearance on ESPN, Joe Budden sat down for an interview with Jenny Boom Boom for Hot 93.7 and they spoke on a number of topics.
During the interview, Joe Budden said the June 12 release date for welcome to: OUR HOUSE is tentative. A frequent visitor during “1st & 10,” Joe Budden also spoke on his trips to ESPN. As the hip hop media has gotten to know Joe Budden, they have discovered he is not wild, the way many tried to portray him. Leading a very quiet life, Joe Budden explained why he is the way he is and he also spoke on having a co-sign from one of the biggest rappers ever, Eminem. However, the question on most Joe Budden fans’ minds was when he was going to release his next studio album, to which Joe Budden revealed his next album was due for a September 2012 release.
