On Thursday (December 16), Joe Budden will stop by “RapFix Live” to chat with MTV News’ Sway and the MC isn’t holding anything back.
The New Jersey native recently released the latest installment of his mixtape series, Mood Muzik 4 and you can ask the JoeBudden.TV host whatever you like. “RapFix Live” will air right here on RapFix.mtv.com at 4 p.m. ET.
“For those that are not familiar, I like to call it one of the best mixtape series ever,” Budden said from his New Jersey ‘hood. “One came out in maybe 2005, and it was all conceived from information I got from labels basically saying that B-sides were less important than singles, and I just disagreed with that.”
And from there, the Mood Muzik phenomenon was born.
“It was something that started there and kind of took on a life of its own,” Joe recalled. “Calling it a mixtape when it’s really an album with all original production, all brand-new lyrics, nothing ever heard before. It just got a really great reception from fans and something that we kept going, so it’s something we do every two or three years. It’s not just something that comes around. People put mixtapes out every few months, every year. They come often. Not Mood Muzik. It’s a totally different type of monster. And when you hear it, you should be able to understand why.”
