After unveiling the release date for his new album a few days ago by sky-diving with Complex Joe Budden releases the second single, “By Law,” from his forthcoming new album Rage & The Machine.
Joe Budden decides that the best way to announce his 6th studio album titled Rage & The Machine is by skydiving with Complex. That’s new.
Here’s the tracklist:
Serious f. Joell Ortiz
By Law f. Jazzy
Flex f. Tory Lanez & Fabolous
I Gotta Ask
Time For Work f. Emanny
I Wanna Know f. Stacy Barthe
Joe Budden takes a break from battle rapping to ease on out with Fabolous and Tory Lanez around some beautiful women in the video for “Flex.”
Joe Budden takes Fabolous’ “Breathe” for a ride during an appearance on Freestyles With Flex and does the damn thing justice.
Once upon a time, Joe Budden had a little feud with the entire Wu Tang Clan over his seeding on a Vibe emcee tournament bracket. The feud culminated at the 2009 Rock The Bells festival where a member of Raekwon’s entourage punched Budden in the face. Meanwhile, Mickey Factz happened to be in the dressing room but skipped out before it got real. Fast forward to 2016 and Budden being in the midst of a never ending barrage of Drake disses. Factz has voiced his opinion on social media and Budden didn’t take too kindly to it. So now, Factz fires his own diss at Budden titled “Eye Witness” produced by Nottz. Will Budden respond?
Since Drake hasn’t really responded with anything worth talking about, Joe Budden gives him another jab just to see if he’s paying attention with “Just Because.”
Joe Budden appeared on The Brilliant Idiots podcast with Andrew Schultz and Charlamagne Tha God to discuss his rationale for going at Drake, not once, not twice, but thrice. Listen to Joey give his side of the story.
Maybe it wasn’t such a great idea for Drake to open his mouth on “No Shopping” because all it did was cause Joe Budden to go all in with yet another diss track on “Afraid.”
Joe Budden takes a break from aiming his verbal vitriol at Drake to drop this much needed “Freedom” freestyle that harnesses the anger of the community in the numerous deaths of African Americans at the hand of police. A matching of equally troubling visuals comes as a fresh reminder how much despair there is in the community.
“I was told there was once a world where slaves communicated with each other via music, and tho I wasn’t present for that, the HipHop I fell in love with always encouraged me to do the same (Thank you Public Enemy)…. Let this act as an unfortunate reminder that times change and they don’t. #BlackLivesMatter #YallLivesMatter #OurLivesMatter … I’m afraid to wonder what happens when we as a ppl decide to stop saying it. Some deem us threatening now by sheer design. We are not. We are loving, passionate, cultured and proud, even during unrest. However, with every life viciously and maliciously taken by costumed evil, we grow more and more afraid. What will occur when too many of us are afraid? #IfYouDontValueMyLifeEYEWill #GodHelpUsAll #TheMissionIsGreat” – Joe Budden
If Joe Budden didn’t get Drake’s attention with “Making A Murderer Pt 1,” he wants to make certain that the Toronto rapper hears him loud and clear with his second salvo “Wake.” Produced by araabMUZIK, Budden picks up where he left off and tackles everything about Drake that he didn’t get to the first time around.
