Although super-group Slaughterhouse will be releasing their debut album on August 11, Slaughterhouse [click to read] member Joe Budden [click to read] will also be releasing a solo project that same day.

Entitled Escape Route, the digital-only album, is a prelude to Joe Budden’s next solo album The Great Escape.

“Escape Route is a precursor to what may very well be the best Joe Budden album ever… The Great Escape,”
said Joe Budden in a statement. “It’s filled with the lyricism and passion that Joe Budden fans have come to love me for….‘THE GREAT ESCAPE’ coming soon!”

Taking a turn from his early Just-Blaze produced solo tracks, Joe Budden’s album will include production from 9th Wonder, Streetrunner, Chad West, and J. Cardim.
