With the arrival of his long-awaited Padded Room LP and the stellar debut full-length from lyrical supergroup Slaughterhouse, 2009 was a big year for Joe Budden, and fans will undoubtedly be disappointed not to see him do even more impressive things in 2010. That’s a lot of pressure; is he up to the challenge? On his latest feature, released as a teaser for the latest installment of his Mood Muzik series, he leaves no doubt about the answer to that question, “Hello Expectations, you know I had to greet you / It don’t matter where you at, I always come and meet you.” Not going to take him at his word? The hard-hitting, intricately-rhymed blend of trash talk and allusive braggadocio he delivers over Beewirks’ street-ready boardwork should go a long way toward allaying your doubts. Time to ask the obvious question: does this track meet your expectations, or does it exceed them? Either way, you’ll want to keep your browsers locked to DJBooth.net for all the latest news and tunes leading up to the summer release of Budden’s Mood Muzik 4 mixtape.
