ENTERTAINMENT ONE MUSIC TO RELEASE JOE BUDDEN’S NEW MIXTAPE, MOOD MUZIK 4: A TURN 4 THE WORST, ON NOVEMBER 9TH, 2010
(New York, NY) — E1 Music is set to release the highly anticipated fourth installment of the “Mood Muzik” mixtape series by New Jersey’s own Joe Budden. Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst will be released on November 9th, 2010 and features appearances by all 3 fellow members of hip-hop supergroup Slaughterhouse as well as other big-name artists Fabolous and Lloyd Banks.
In 2003, Joe Budden released the first installment of what would become one of the premiere selling mix-tapes series of all time entitled Mood Muzik: Worst of Joe Budden. With massive street notoriety, Joe Budden signed to Def Jam Records in that same year and released major hits from his self-titled album, such as the timeless 2003 Grammy- nominated hit “Pump It Up” in the category of Best Male Rap Solo.
Winner of the 2003 Vibe Next Award, Joe went on to consecutively release the legendary and still unrivaled Mood Muzik 2: Can It Get Any Worse? (2005), the critically acclaimed Mood Muzik 3: For Better or For Worse (2007) and Mood Muzik 3: The Album (2008). The resurgent Budden once widely considered a casualty of the kind of major −label machinations that have derailed so many promising rap careers, has proven irrepressible, bursting back into public prominence with a landslide of vivid new verses. Since 2007, in addition to his mixtapes, he has released two CDs (Escape Route and the narrative−heavy "Padded Room"), the internet−only LP ("Halfway House"), and a spirited collaboration with hip−hop supergroup Slaughterhouse.
Joe Budden will do a national promo tour October 20th thru October 30th and will be making his way to Europe and Canada in the coming months.
One of the most consistent artists to date, his matchless lyrical artistry continues to garner him worldwide respect and success in such places as Europe, Africa and Asia.
The tracklist can be viewed below:
1. Intro (Pray For Them) 2. Come Along 3. Remember The Titans (Ft. Fabolous, Lloyd Banks, & Royce Da 5’9”) 4. Short Summer 5. Role Reversal 6. Mop Salad Skit (performed by Karon “Kdotonthebeat,” Performed by parks Vallely) 7. No Idea 8. Black Cloud 9. Follow My Lead (Ft. Joell Ortiz) 10. Weekend Warrior Skit (performed by Karon “Kdotonthebeat”) 11. Sober Up (Ft. Crooked I) 12. Hello Expectations 13. Something To Ride To 14. Stuck In The Moment (ft. Emanny, Performed by parks Vallely)

If you’re longtime readers of this site you already know who brokeMC and Dyalekt are (picture L to R w/ singer Ihsan in-between). They’ve been featured here individually, and as members of the MINDSpray crew. Recently, they decided to team up for a project they’re calling Deathrow Tull. A funky hip-hop ride that manages to be both fun and timely, Deathrow Tull is already becoming well known throughout Brooklyn for their live performances, one of which even included an MTA piñata to help them express how they felt about the potential fare hikes. This week I took a swing at finding out more about Deathrow Tull, including how it will affect brokeMC and Dyalekt’s solo careers, the intricacies of working with a live band, and what they can’t stand about each other.
