As 2 Chainz prepares to release his highly anticipated album T.R.U. Realigion, he's finally getting the recognition he deserves. Continuing a takeover that's seen his national profile raised considerably, & his songs on constant rotation in every club we hit, we couldn't help but wonder, what took y'all so long? Since the first D.T.P. album, we've been checking for the ex Alabama State basketball player, formerly known as Tity Boi.
D.T.P. ft. Tity Boi, I-20, & Ludacris - Smoking Dro
Check him out on the first verse.
Playaz Circle - Play Pen To The State Pen
"Even with this wife beater on, I still got something up my sleeve"
Ludacris ft. Shareefa, Lil Fate, Playaz Circle, Norfclk, Field Mob and I-20 - Family Affair
You couldn't tell us then, or now, that 2 Chainz & Dolla Boy didn't steal the show on that one.
Joe Budden stopped by Silver Spring, Maryland on Monday night to be a guest judge for the Redbull Emsee: DC event at the Fillmore. Before judging the freestyle competition with Devin the Dude and Big K.R.I.T, he sat down with Drank and Dank to discuss a few things including his Mood Muzik series and his signing with Shady Records.
How did you come up with the concept of the Mood Muzik series?
Joe: Well with Mood Muzik it stemmed from such an unhappy place. I mean it’s really as simple as I was shelved on my major label and I didn’t have an outlet. Everybody was force-feeding me how these records that contained emotion… nobody gave a fuck about. I just begged to differ. So everybody at the time, mixtapes were really big, and everybody was doing “Best of…” mixtapes and I just thought I would do a “worst of…”. It was kind of to mock people that thought these songs had no place in hip-hop. I was so fucked up at the time during Mood Muzik 1 that it was just a bunch of old songs but Mood Muzik 2 I guess really caught everyone’s attention and kind of became a cult classic.
