    so i just checked out artbyshake, lmao

    look at the jadakiss and camron covers, looks like a 11 year old colouring in session at school.

  • Jesus

    It really is amazing how much more enjoyable Joe Budden’s music is when it has some good production

  • @hayabusa

    say word, son

    if that happens… i’m on my men in blue… straight coppin’ it fast

  • THEONE

    him and j cardim need to make a whole album

    I wasnt a believer a couple of years ago..but i sure as hell am now.

  • nysrilla

    this is random but 2dopeboyz comments are the only people i see that appreciates the music rather than judging ppl.. props for that lol.

  • Curtis Hampton

    LMAO THIS NIGGA AINT BEEN SHIT SINCE PUMP IT UP I WAS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HAHA WHATS UP WITH ALL THE SPORTS REFERNCES DOES HE WRITE SONG WITH SPORTCENTER IN THE BACKGROUND…NEED TO BE MORE CREATIVE WITH HIS BARS

  • love the intro… and rip teddy… i guess i gotta let it go

    another love t.k.o

  • Joey doesn’t dissapoint.

  • belz

    definetly shots fired at hov. i like that last line, the whole verse is fire.

    sometimes joe just goes nutty on tracks. lately with cardim its been all flames. that cardim joint on his escape route tape was great too (world keeps spinnin? or some shit)

  • Jordan

    Best part about his punchline at Benzino is Benzino won’t even understand it.

  • Duuuuude

    Padded Room was insane.

  • Curtis Hampton

    jordan you sound so lame
    benzino won’t understand but your ass will STFU like u got some insights…..

  • i’m on my j.cole, jay elec, blu, grafh ****

    what does that line mean?

  • yaowa

    i’m on my j.cole, jay elec, blu, grafh ****

    what does that line mean?

    means hes dope. cuz all he listed are dope.

  • that would be a dope tandem

    j. cole, blu, jay elec, & grafh

    but dreams are dreams and this it real… well done joey

  • i love how joe always includes some up to date shit in his rhymes. really shows he’s on top of his game, writing and recording non stop. good stuff.

  • ^sportscenter joey… always up to date

  • Unxpekted

    FAIL

    trash bin music pummp pummp it up

  • yaowa

    unxpekted scared to listen cuz he knows it’ll stop his blind hate.

  • Chrisl

    Joey is on point – especially of late. And so is Cardim on the boards as always. Its a shame that a lot of people love to hate on dude because he can lyrically ether most out right now.

  • guy

    comin back for my old spot call me jay leno

    Joey spittin fire of late.

  • Nas is awesome

    Old spot? He hasn’t had anything to do with being the best. I like his music top 5 for me but hes more of a local rapper than anyone with real credibility.

  • belz

    i like the “j cole jay elec blu grafh” line EXCEPT….Grafh?

    not really that good. listen to a grafh mixtape it makes you wanna jump off a bridge. he has nowhere near the talent of the other three. i dunno, maybe its me. i know he has mad street ties in jamaica queens and he ran with people 50 came up with. anyway.

  • Ren401

    whats the pants on the ground shit about?

  • yaowa

    belz, Idk man.. listen to Dreams and My Soul. he got quite a few gems that arent all about gunplay.

  • We need something realer!

    Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground!

  • Ren401

    i know it means tht but i didnt know if it was directed towards something specific

  • S

    He said its not a shot

  • Ren401

    ight good looks, this shit is dope! and wtf yall talkin bout hes “spittin fire of late” he spit fire on Mood Muzik 2 and 3, Halfway House, Padded Room, and Escape Route, along witht he Slaughterhouse album, WHERE YALL BEEN?!

  • When I saw that Joe wasn’t as present on the web as he always is, I knew that he was going in, doing something crazy in the studio.

  • “if you real” is a song for anyone questioning joey’s past hotness

    that’s where it started

    find that track and find the essence of joey… true story

  • Archipelago

    Budden has some dope lines – I’ll give him that – but he’s very easy not to like. This track has better production that the majority of Joey tracks, but it will be forgotten tomorrow.

    Budden can’t touch Jay E, Blu, J. Cole, or Freddie Gibbs IMO.

    ‘I seen artists fail thinking they will blow up’.

    Joey summed up his own ‘career’.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    Pants on the Ground is some original song a 62 year old geyser auditioning for American Idol sang..a lot of ppl think its funny, I thought it was pathetic

  • @Archipelago

    i’m with you 100%, except for everything you’ve said

  • This is pure hot garbage. What a horrible track from the biggest women rapper around. Sorry but Pump it up will be your only hit buttons

  • I’m happy that he mentioned Grafh. Because that’s my dude and he’s been hard for the longest.

  • guy

    it’s pretty hard to deny that dude’s got lyrics. he can spaz out on a track like its nothing. also what people before said, he’s got the up to date refrences, shows how often he’s writing and making songs. i mean you gotta respect dude’s talent and work ethic… even if you don’t like his songs or just him as a person.

  • yaowa

    did some1 say Freddie Gibbs? LMAO. off yaself

  • james

    Robbie if I ever met you in real life I’d beat the shit out of you. You’re so fucking annoying.

    with that said, glad it’s a leftover and I’m glad I got it.

  • randomdude

    his punchlines dont wow me and dunno if its just me but his flow bores me

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    I just want to announce to my fellow contributors of the 2dopeboyz.com comment section that……I love the feeling of the fully erect male reproductive organ being thrust into my anus and colliding with my prostate.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    oh and LUPE OR DIE!!!!

  • banks30

    song is dope. I remember one of my homeboys try to put me Joey three years ago and I was like the nigga that made pump it up you can’t be serious. But once slaughterhouse took off I started to listen to him more and go back to his older sh!t and dude is real nice mic.

  • This guy!

    The production is fucking ill. Joey went in. Regardless of what anyone says, he’ll still be in my top. What’s so ironic is that me and my girl talk about how all these folks are on that Moscato tip because of Drake when she’s been on it for the longest and he says it! Lol! I thought we were the only one’s who noticed that.

    I like Joey because dude is relatable.

  • dope track…

  • kidadonis

    Lol, Joey just always has a real view on the Hip-hop world. Always real.

  • Unxpekted

    FAIL

    I did listen to it… it sucks unless you like an artist that spits the same shit everyone else has heard 100 times metaphors on a hip hop beat. Grow up as an artist and start doing something different. Im not a “thug nigger” so I cant really relate to someone who I find ignorant like Joe Budden. I prefer obscure, abstract, or instrumented, musicians who can cover different genres, while still maintaining the hip hop essence, being innovative and doing something different. Unfortunately every song Joe releases is the same song on a different beat. Its the same voice, same rhyme scheme, same topics, different metaphors, different lyrics, but same boring stuff. Im just being honest. Sorry. keep it moving

  • unexpeked = fag

    anyone who ever doubted/hated on joey = clown

  • Dangerous Vortex

    Song is definitely dope. I like Money’s On Me as well. Not into Budden like that but definitely the 2 tracks I just mentioned got me waiting for his album if it has shit like this.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    Yea unxpected seemed kinda racist for a second there…and I think we all know the 1 that posts as my name except with homosexual comments is my stan/stalker by now

  • Unexpected is a white male from the suburbs majoring in liberal arts. He wears his hear jet black dyed, parted to the side.. on that Rihanna look.

  • Yeah

    Unxpekted basically summed up Joe Budden perfectly.

  • Unxpekted

    P’cola actually im not but that doesnt take away from what I said. I can say you are a tranny with Cassies haircut, sooo your point?

    fulltimeboos = your a fagget? you should keep those things to yourself

    Again dont take it out of context and dont get emotion over someone own opinion:

  • So name these artists which branch into all of the other genres. If you mention Jay-Z’s washed up ass, Kanye West’s possibly homosexual ass or Kid Cudi then you have lost all credibility, not that anyone is taking you serious right now.

    Joe Budden is hip-hop, it’s that simple.

  • Jesus

    I dont understand the whole Kanye West homosexuality thing, considering he has a girlfriend.

  • Jesus

    And anyway what does being gay have to do with making good music anyway?

  • Unxpekted

    Joe Budden is not hip hop.. a “nigga” who doesnt do anything knew or uplift his people musically isnt hip hop. I never even mentioned Jay-Z, Kanye, or Kid Kudi so your just talking out your ass.

    Your a complete noob and it shows you know nothing about this music, all you mentioned were hip hop names. And everything you said was completely irrelovant to the subject I was speaking of.

    You did nothing to refute what I said but mention random comercial artists that have nothing to do with Budden or anything in geenral

    You can like what you want but saying Budden is hip hop means absolute nothing. Its ultimately your own opinion. Keep it moving

  • Unxpekted

    PS. Those arent genres buddy. Thats called pop.

  • Unxpekted

    Grow up musically theres more to hip hop than a “nigga” telling you how many bitches he gets, how many emcees he eats, and how much money hes gettng

  • I’m waiting for you to point me to these rap artists who branch out how you’re describing. As of right now you on some talkin out yo ass shit. You know you feelin this track. Bitch you have ears.

  • Casanova

    Joey is too nice. Point blank. He’s on top of his ish, as you can tell by his references.

    “They old and washed up, Larry Holmes, so I Usher in the New Year screamin’ Daddy’s Home.” How can you hear that and say he ain’t nice? SMH @ the haters.

  • B Tank

    Shit is Dope!
    Joe Budden + J.Cardim= DOPE

  • yaowa

    Unxpekted. Joe is doing these throw-away songs for the fans. this isnt an album cut moron. he said he’s just rapping BARS. showing his skill. thats it. he’s not trying to make a perfect concept/storytelling song. stop hating.

  • Unxpekted

    Again thats an unintelligent irrelovant reply. You said nothing to refute what I spoke of.

    “Im waiting for you to point me to these rap artists who branch out”

    Well, if you dont know them, you dont know them. Since you seem to like commercial pop emcees, Ill give you a commercially known group who have matured and grown musically “The Roots”

    If you think this “bAnGin” Joe button track is going to be considered classic 20 years from now and your going to telling your kids that this was a classic song. If you dont think this shut your mouth and keep it moving, you like it good, I dont its my opinion. My opinion is theres very few musicians who can make classic music anymore.

    “bitch you have ears”

    Im not feeling it, and obviously you dont have ears if you think this is “music” its your opinion but to me you have pretty low standards if your going around telling people this is a great track.

  • Jesus

    Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, B.o.B., P.O.S., just to name a few

  • Unxpekted

    Thats cool if you like it good, I just said this:

    I did listen to it… it sucks unless you like an artist that spits the same shit everyone else has heard 100 times metaphors on a hip hop beat.

Im just being honest. Sorry. keep it moving

    Maybe im completely wrong, if so thats okay you need indifference for balance, maybe he will release something I will love next, until then Im waiting.

    Good effort though I hope he keeps doing his thing, he obviously has a big internet/blogger fan base here, and here only

  • Unxpekted

    Case closed

  • Irrelevant.

    How you speak on intelligence and riddle your posts with misspelled words. You’re a child, you know nothing of Hip-Hop. Calm down, you know joey nice.

  • Dangerous Vortex

    I’m sorry to jump in this but Unxpekted, you’re making an ass out of yourself telling someone that they have pretty low standards in something THEY like. Something that’s catching THEIR ears. If YOU like something and call it great then you’re pretty much telling yourself the same thing which is a double standard.

  • james

    Unxpekted, you’re an elitist. Shut the fuck up and jerk off to whatever odd standards you set for yourself. The fact you typed “thug nigger” as a reference to Budden’s music proves you’re probably some fucking racist who hasn’t listened to Budden’s music.

    You’re an idiot. Music isn’t supposed just to uplift people. There’s many purposed and pleasures to it. Get the fuck out of here. Another dumbass poster on 2dopeboyz…it’s become the norm.

  • Jesus

    Because someone states an opinion thats opposite of the one you hold, it makes him a “dumbass poster”. That makes sense…

  • james

    He’s a dumbass poster because:

    a. he’s telling everyone what is and isn’t hip-hop
    b. he used the phrase “thug nigger” as a reference to Budden & his music

    Jesus, you’re a dumbass for not getting the picture.

  • No because he fills his post questioning other people’s intelligence while misspelling words and having no basis to his opinion. What I gathered through is post is that… the ROOTs are the only hip hop act that makes good music. Couple that with the fact that he spews racist bull shit, and he’s a dumbass poster.

  • Jesus

    I understand taking offense to the racism, because that’s uncalled for, but thats his opinion about what he thinks is hip-hop, you obviously don’t hold the same opinion, so why attack him for it, its not like he can force you to hate Joe Budden. And you talk about him having no basis for his opinion when he clearly states “I prefer obscure, abstract, or instrumented, musicians who can cover different genres, while still maintaining the hip hop essence, being innovative and doing something different. Unfortunately every song Joe releases is the same song on a different beat. Its the same voice, same rhyme scheme, same topics, different metaphors, different lyrics, but same boring stuff.”
    Where as all you say is:
    “You’re a child, you know nothing of Hip-Hop. Calm down, you know joey nice.”
    and
    “So name these artists which branch into all of the other genres. If you mention Jay-Z’s washed up ass, Kanye West’s possibly homosexual ass or Kid Cudi then you have lost all credibility, not that anyone is taking you serious right now.
    Joe Budden is hip-hop, it’s that simple.”

    How is that a basis for an opinion?

  • Yea Joey & J.Cardim have been killing it with the collabos this past month or so! Joey went in on this 1 like the other 1s so far!

  • Oh ps – Mystikal just got released from prison & Snoop signed Cypress Hill

  • james

    It’s one thing to state a preference, it’s another to apply it as a fact to a certain artist.

    Anyways, I’m off this shit. One of the reasons I’m not a teacher. You can’t change someone unless they want to and if you stuck on stupid, you’ll still be stuck on stupid no matter what anyone says. So, I’m off this bullshit.

  • Shut the fuck up you’re an idiot. He is yet to name ANYONE in hip hop who does everything he wants besides a group with legendary status. Get off his dick faggot.

  • Jesus

    ^^^^^^^^
    Nice job making yourself look like the dumbass. I state something, never once attack you, but instead of trying to have an intelligent debate you immediately turn to personally attacking me. I don’t even know why I’m arguing with someone as ignorant as you.

  • Because you’re a faggot.

  • Beast New York

    Joe Budden + J. Cardim = Crack

  • Jesus

    You mad? From you’re posts its obvious you’re some homophobic 12 year old who gets on his parents computer to talk shit from behind his keyboard. If thats the case, I think you should go to bed seeing as its getting late, and maybe tomorrow when you wake up you won’t be so cranky.

  • Jesus

    Oh, and don’t forget to say your prayers before you fall asleep.

  • har har har, how clever. resorting to the omg he’s being mean online he must be 12. shut the fuck up faggot.

  • Jesus

    Like I said, 12 year old homophobe.

  • kill yourself faggot.

    Tbh I dunno why you’re arguing over something that subjective though. You either like it or you don’t. How can somebody be less “Hip Hop” than you because they have a different opinion? Everyone has different tastes so just leave it at that.

  • As much as I love Joe, Im going to have to agree with unexpected on SOME points….he has talent and potential but he needs direction.

  • Ren401

    You guys are rediculous, how can you say that budden has no concepts?! have you ever listened to an album?!!! “Pray For Me” , “I I Die Tomorrow”, “Walk With Me”, “Exxxes” and theres many more “3 Sides To a Story” ?!!!!!

Im just being honest. Sorry. keep it moving

    You guys are the same stans spewing the same shit I heard when Wayne was “the best rapper alive”. Im sorry but most hip hop artists wouldnt consider Joe Budden in the top 1,000 and thats truth be told. He is another block rapper. I am not trying to say he is not talented, or talented. I am just saying he is nothign more than a “thug nigga” wannabe rapper who got punched in the face and used Royce to back him up for all his beefs he couldnt handle. Period. Hate if you want. Truth is hard to handle for some.

    Again if you think in 20 years they are going to refer to these tracks as classic and your going to tell your kids one day this is classic music than keep fighting for someone who isnt giving youa penny or a damn about who you are.

    shut the fuck up enexpekted nobody gives a fuck what u think

  • Diesel

    good one

  • E.N.D.

    Hey Diesel, you spelled your name wrong. Clown.

    And this track won’t be rememered after the first listen. If making a couple MTV & American Idol references – mixed with bein salty about people who made it – is what people like, then this track is for you. Now Budden ‘Thuggin’? Budden made a Grafh drop? You mofo’s ever heard Grafh? GTFOH.

    More of the same. ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz.

  • Ya’ll some fuckin fools. I’ve come to the conclusion that every poster on 2dbz is a troll doing it for the lulz. As such no opinions will ever be taken seriously again.

  • E.N.D.

    Aaaaaah. P’Cola, the resident ho. U mad? Catchin feelins on Budden?

    People have differing opinions on a wack ass track, and you gonna qualify it for the masses huh? Nah, ain’t happenin.

  • Ice Water

    Yall niggas need to chill with the praises. I mean Budden can rap and all, but this song is lame. Whats so hard about this beat? Weakest hook I heard in a while.

    He can rap but he can´t good music. And thats the tripple truth. Budden stans are the most annoying thing on internet.
