Joe Budden recently announced that he’ll be giving away a free EP this fall, but he’s remaining mum on anything else on the solo front. Speaking with emtheories.com, Jumpoff Joey explained that he has an album coming out on E1 Music but isn’t sure if he’ll be supporting the project.
“All throughout my career, whenever there’s been something up in the air in limbo, I’ve always managed to give the people music,” he said. “There’s never been a dry spell. As far as my next studio album, I’m not really quite sure just yet. I have an album coming out on E1. I don’t even know the name of it, I don’t even know if I’m going to support it. But I have one coming out. As far as after that, I can’t tell you.”
Right now, he’s focusing on his duties as part of Slaughterhouse, which is recording its Shady Records debut. “I think all four of us are diverting all attention into just that. We put our solo careers to the side for the bettering of the group,” he continued. “I’ve always said that as long as Slaughterhouse is in the right situation, which we happen to be in, then Joe Budden can come second. I never intended on being signed to a record deal. I was just rapping because it helped me. That’s still what I do now. It’s just that people happen to like it.”
