This album is pure flames. WTF is wrong with some of you? This IS Joe Budden. You can't expect anything DIFFERENT THEN WHAT HAS BEEN GIVIN...its all real talk. You dudes must live in this fantasy life where its up to YOUR expectations. If you don't like it, delete it.

This album is really hott. With all his classic songs he has dropped since his last album there's no way he's not going to disappoint you with this album. .it's impossible because he set the bar so high. But I feel like this album is very refreshing. It's crazy to hear this and to think that this is going to be in stores, it's so against the grain to what's coming out now days. I would prolly give it like a 4.5. I'm only upset about the family reunion bullsh*t. But besides that I was very happy with this album. The replay value is incredible. If this album isn't top 5 of the year, then 09 is a special year in hip hop.

But I guess my big complaint has gotta be the fact that I feel like he wasted some of his best tracks on MM2 MM3 and halfway house. Imagine if he dropped a double album with the best tracks from all 4 of the last projects he came out with. Can we say an easy classic?

I mean he had 4-5 songs on halfway house that could match up with almost any song on his album. that's very disappointing. Not to mention the numerous classics he had on his MM mixtapes.

Still a great listen non the less but damn Joey don't be so stupid next time. You just missed out on putting together one of the best albums in hip hop history because you wasted 20 classic songs on mixtapes.

The Family Reunion remix is actually not on it....there are pics of the actual CD case floating around which confirms that....

It WAS depressing...wtf were u listening to? lol...most of the songs fit the theme PERFECTLY....

Exxxes
Do Tell
Angel in my life
Pray for me
Blood on the wall
In my sleep
happy holidays (it sounds happy but its actually a depressing song, listen to the lyrics)


I never said it wasn't depressing, I think he could have went deeper. I only had the album for a few hours though, but I plan on giving it a thorough listen tomorrow and I might write a review.

I will definitely cop the album when it comes out to show Joe Budden support.

The album was somewhat disappointing when i first heard it because it was definitely NOT what i expected. Joey pushed the envelope on this one though and after a few listens, this sh*t bumps. There are a few songs that leave u with the "what the fu*k" look but in general it was a good effort. His artistry has taken a nu turn. Let us not forget that this is a concept album; every single song follows a particular concept and therefore it may seem left field than what most expect.

All in all, he came through though. Production was great; actually surprised at how well most of the production came out. He chose beats that suit his style, except one or two. Lyrix; Joe always come through w/ the lyrix so great. Concepts; the best part of this.

As a huge Joe Budden fan, i can say that i enjoyed this album but am still kinda disappointed. It cant stand next to MM3... Its still an above average album but Joe should've come through to prove the doubters wrong instead of bringing them something that may be a bit too much for them to grasp/understand.

3.75/5

i am not a joe budden fan i think hes kinda wack and boring but i decided to DL this album and check it out. huge mistake! this album is just terrible. whats with all the pop sounding radio friendly tracks? and the street tracks are just hot garbage. i'm not sure how joey lost more by letting saigon sh*t on him or dropping this weed plate. its funny the joe buden fans on this site just like the saigon battle wont admit for a second that joey lost today. I'm a big wu-tang fan but even i knew 8 Diagrams was wack.
Either u just dont like Buddens or... U didnt listen to the album. I say that because there really isn't any track that is supposed to be "radio friendly". The closest to that is Future... And even that is not so "radio friendly" The rest are concept songs, none are generic w/ autotune and sh*t. And from what everybody knows as "street tracks" there aren't any of those on this... There is the occasional mention of street sh*t but "street tracks".. None..

On another note, u didn't listen to the album. U just jumped in this thread to say some sh*t trying to be interesting... :disdain2:

25 people voting 5 mics = the reason why the review section means nothing... All hating aside, this sh*t is FAR from a classic. I mean lets be logical for a minute, classic albums are never forgotten - this weedplate will be completely forgotten within a few months..

judging by your review i can tell you actually really hate this album except for a handful of tracks but being a budden fanboy you have tried your hardest to big the album up. the album is trash and when i say radio friendly i mean sh*tty sounding beats that you can instantly tell they were trying to go more mainstream with it. it doesnt necessarily have to have autotune for it to be considered radio friendly. the album is just wack and yeah i only listened once but i've been listening to hip hop long enough to be able to determine if beats are sh*tty to me or not. so if your gonna call me a hater then your completely on the opposite side of things which would make you a d*ckrider. alls i'm saying is YOU go and pay money for this i'm gonna save mine. and i love how budden groupies are all trying to justify this weedplate by saying its because its a concept album. fu*k outta here with that. excuses are like a**holes and everybody got one. just be real for the buzz this album had it completely blows.
nope.. It only means that am able to tell the difference between complete garbage *ahem*TOS*ahem* and material that is decent. There IS a difference u know that. Not ONLY black and white are colors. Unless, that's ur view; which would actually explain ur lack of understanding anything artistic.. Simply put; u're "color" blind... Think about that... And think of color as being more than just red, blue, green etc, if u can...

I gave it a 4/5. Production was kinda bland and I wish it was a few songs longer.

Note: How come no one mentions "Don't Make Me" I love this sh*t. The beat and that sample are dope.
