Afternoon Aural: Joe Budden
Joe Budden may not be the biggest player in hip-hop, but he’s sure got some powerful enemies. Not only did he inadvertently start a feud with The Game and G Unit with some improved lyrics – [the] G-Unit [music] video with all the gangsta actors” – but he’s also reportedly had a falling out with Jay-Z.

Perhaps that’s why Budden’s yet to release his second album through Def Jam, which Universal honcho Jay-Z operates. Oh well, we’ll always have his eponymous debut and its underrated single, “Pump It Up”.
