His first studio album is called Joe Budden.

The third mixtape installment of Mood Muzik, having now taken the title of "The Growth", will be released soon, DJ Onpoint says. The now untitled second album from Joe is still in the making, according to fan meeting accounts and a comment from Def Jam president Jay-Z. “I don’t have Joe Budden’s album in my hand. I try to be diplomatic about it. You’re trying to make the best product. I’m an artist, I understand. I don’t have Joe Budden’s album. It doesn’t make sense, why would I not put it out if it’s ready?” It is scheduled to come out sometime after Mood Muzik 3, many anxious Hip-Hop fans anticipate its long delayed release.


Mood Muzik 3 (Prequel to The Growth)

As Joe Budden stated in an interview [2], he's currently reviewing his options on how to release the next installment in the series. A few songs have already leaked on the Internet including "Unforgiven," "Last Real Ni**a Left," and "Where Did It Go Wrong." Joe Budden now has a new song "I Can Picture (Can't Control It)" with Mike Gainous. The song has the same beat as an old song of Joe Budden named "Club Song" which was released in 2006. In a recent interview on October 11th, 2007, Joe Budden states that the highly anticipated mixtape will be released in December. [3]


Controversy and Beef

G-Unit

In 2004, a feud was started between Joe and the G-Unit camp. On a mixtape freestyle Budden did with The Game and Stack Bundles ("Crosscountry Connection"), Game (who was still affiliated with G-Unit at the time) took offense to Joe's line, "[the] G-Unit [music] video with all the gangsta actors". The Game claimed that he was unaware that Budden was even going to be on the track and accused him of attempting to embarrass him by dissing G-Unit on a song featuring a G-Unit member. Diss songs were exchanged, with Game releasing the notorious diss "Buddens" (which used the instrumental from "Colors" by Ice T). Budden replied with "Game Over" (a song that used the instrumental to "It's Funky Enough" by The D.O.C.), in which Budden would call Game just "a replacement until [Tony] Yayo gets home".. Budden would later release a diss aimed at the whole of G-Unit titled "Big Shot" (which samples "Big Shot" by Billy Joel). The beef would later be ended in August 2004, as both men wished to focus on their careers and upcoming albums. G-Unit is a rap group which consists of 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, (The) Game, R & B singer Olivia and, most recently, Spider Loc. ...

Jay-Z

Prior to his debut album, Budden was involved in less-publicized feuds with other rappers on the NY mixtape circuit, including Ali Vegas and Team Arliss member Trav. Also, Joe raised eyebrows on a remix of "Pump it Up" featuring Jay-Z where the rappers appeared to be dissing each other. [4] This has led to speculations of bad blood between the two being a factor in the constant delays his second album has suffered, since Jay Z is now the President of Joe's parent label - Def Jam. However, both men have denied this. [5] Jay-Z (aka the Jigga, HOV and Hova, born Shawn Carter on December 4, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York) is an African American rapper/hip hop artist and record label executive; one of the most popular and successful rappers of the late 1990s and early 2000s. ... The Growth is Joe Buddens long-awaited second album. ... Def Jam Recordings is an American based hip-hop record label that operates as a part of The Island Def Jam Music Group, which is owned by Universal Music Group. ...


Ransom

In October of 2007 a diss track entitled "Kid Brother" began circulating the internet. Ransom is known as a former member of the defunct rap group "A-Team" along with Joe Budden and Hitchcock. On "Kid Brother, Ransom uses Kanye West's "Big Brother" instrumental and chorus style to criticize Joe Budden of being a "snake" for leaving the group after the success of "Pump It Up".


In response Joe Budden recorded "Heart of the City" over the same instrumental used by Jay-Z . In the introduction of this song Joe Budden is heard whistling and states that "it isnt real beef when a nigga's whistling", in order to demonstrate his lack of intimidation from Ransom's threats.


Ransom's second diss track towards Joe Budden was "Die Tonight".


Joe Budden again replied with "Ransom Note". This time Joe Budden chose to record of the "Take Over" instrumental originally used by Jay-Z towards Nas during their infamous battle. Joe Budden uses several personal and candid insults towards Ransom including his working at Home Depot, going to school for culinary arts, and street credibility as a whole. Joe Budden also expresses that this controversy was out of desperation on Ransom's part because of lack of mainstream interest in his previous musical efforts.


Released From Def Jam

After months of speculation Joe Budden was released from Def Jam and made the following statement:


"I'm just happy we were finally able to cut all ties. I feel like I have all the talent in the world, but for some reason was never able to showcase it there,I'm looking forward to whatever God has in store for me, and Joe Budden fans should know - today is a beautiful day."
