Today being Joe Budden’s 27th Birthday is a good enough reason for me to give dude some shine on the blog, since he hasn’t gotten much love yet. First of all, if you’re still thinking that this is just the Pump It Up dude, you’re sadly mistaken. Joe Budden, aka THAT DUDE, bka jumpoff, aka King of New Jerz has earned his stripes on the mic, even though many people don’t mention them in their top 5s or 10s. He has a very strong following on the internet, especially since he dropped Mood Muzik: The Worst of Joe Budden and Mood Muzik 2, which is what some may consider as the best mixtape ever put out.
The only constraint to the man’s career, or the only thing people have to say about dude, is the fact that his second album is taking forever to come out, and that Def Jam keeps jerking him. It was all good though, because as long as he would keep dropping tapes like that, no one minded. But now that he’s taking extra long to drop MM3, what he claims isn’t really that long, his fans are acting extra aggie and extra hateful, and every second sentence they say to dude is when he’s dropping more music.
Give him a break, it’s his born day. If you go peep his newly designed MySpace page, you can watch any video with him on it… music videos, interviews, behind the scenes, whatever. Normally I would post his best songs and convert you, but anyone that isn’t already familiar with dude’s work should off themselves. Plus, he has all of the Mood Muziks on his MySpace page.
