Touted as one of the game’s best emcees, Dirty Jerz native Joe Budden is not one to speak ill of without suffering the repercussions, so it goes without saying that he is no stranger to controversy. Following his much publicized departure from Def Jam, Joe not only kept his name relevant through highly publicized disputes with Jay-Z, The Game, Ransom and most recently Saigon, but more importantly through the release of his highly praised Mood Muzik series of mixtapes. On February 24th, J-O-E-Y will release his much anticipated sophomore LP, The Padded Room via independent label Amalgam Digital. I recently caught up with Joe Budden on the telephone in hopes of finding out what is the Padded Room amongst other questions.
