This is a gift for my man Gonzo, who has been in Joe Budden's corner since '07 died. Budden has been in musical purgatory ever since his rivalry with Sean Carter (AKA Jay-Z AKA Then-Def Jam exec.). While Budden's been waiting for his chance to shine, he's been giving what every fan loves, free music. At heart, we are all cheap. It doesn't matter how much money you've got in your wallet.
After his Mood Muzic 3 dropped, critics (Read: Gonzo) fell in love with the man who was once only known for having a track appear in Madden 04. Mood Muzic, which everyone could easily get for free, sold 10,000 copies despite not having a label backing or promotion.
If you are a Mood Muzic maniac, this will excite you. Here is his newest Budden album, Halfway House. It serves as a prequel to Padded Room, which will not be found here when it drops in 09. That is an album you're going to have to support. In the meantime, enjoy free Budden.
Tracklist: 01. Intro 02. On My Grind 03. Overkill (Feat. Heartbreak) 04. Check Me Out 05. Sidetracked 06. Slaughterhouse (Feat. Joell Ortiz, Nino Bless, Crooked I & Royce Da 5′9″) 07. Under The Sun 08. The Soul 09. Anything Goes 10. Go To Hell 11. Just To Be Different 12. Touch & Go
