Joe Budden: Professional Life, Career

Joe Budden started to take music more seriously and in 2001 he released his first mixtape. Budden and his local producer friend Dub-B started creating demos, one of which landed in the hands of Hot 97 radio host and Desert Storm Records label head DJ Clue, who invited Budden to rap on some of his mixtapes, working with Fabolous and his brother Paul Cain early on.

His freestyle over the instrumental to Grindin’ by Clipse and his original song Focus attracted attention and led to further mixtapes appearances by the likes of DJ Kayslay and Cutmaster C. Following two years on the mixtape circuit, Budden secured a deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2003, after which he began working on his major-label debut.

Budden made a number of guest appearances before the release of his debut album after signing his major deal, working early on his contract with Kelly Rowland and the 3rd Store. On June 10, 2003, Budden released his eponymous debut album, Joe Budden, by Def Jam Recordings. It debuted at number 8 on the US Billboard 200, in its first week selling 95,000 units and in the United States selling 420,000 + copies. It also entered the UK Albums Chart at number 55.

Following the respectable success of his first release, Budden wanted his second release, titled The Growth, to take a less commercial direction. This decision was met with higher-up Def Jam disagreement that wanted The Growth to follow his first release’s commercial style. The album remains unreleased, and ongoing disagreements between Budden and Def Jam eventually led both sides to part ways.

While on Def Jam, he managed to release the first and second installments of his Mood Muzik mixtape series, and the series received critical acclaim.

In May 2016, together with Rory Farrell and Marisa Mendez, Budden started to release a weekly podcast, then known as “I’ll Name This Podcast Later.” Mendez left and was replaced for episode 77 by Jamil “Mal” Clay, after which it was most commonly referred to as “The Joe Budden Podcast.”

During the summer of 2018, The Joe Budden Podcast started touring with live performances throughout the U.S. In August 2018, Budden signed an agreement to bring his podcast to Spotify and expand the show with new episodes every Wednesday and Saturday to a bi-weekly schedule.
