Months after Joe Budden announced that he’d be releasing a mixtape featuring a who’s who of Hip Hop artists including Phonte and Yelawolf, the Jersey rapper has revealed that he no longer has plans on releasing the project which was to be titled Feature Presentation.
Joe Budden broke the news during an interview with AllHipHop.com when he was asked for an update on Feature Presentation.
“I’ll be honest with you… I’m not sure if I’m gonna put that project out,” Joe Budden explained to AllHipHop.com. “It was a project that I originally wanted to do for the fans because I was extremely passionate and I wanted to reach out to all of these great artists and work with them because I don’t typically have too many features at all.”
Ironically, when asked why he chose to cancel the project Joe Budden explained that the biggest problem was the hassle that came with securing featured verses for the mixtape.
“So once I started to do it I remembered why I don’t have too many features. I don’t really have the time with Slaughterhouse and everything happening to chase people for verses or be consistent in trying to get verses from people,” said Joe Budden. “So if it’s not I call you, tell you what I’m doing, and you’re [willing to oblige] and just do a verse and send it. I can’t really chase too many people…A few people actually did send in verses for songs. Z’ro sent in two or three of them. Blu, Elzhi, Phonte, Yela, Emilio Rojas but I am gonna still do these songs and release them. I’m just not certain what project that will be.”
