As the Joe Budden drama simmers down, he can focus on preparing his next album Rage & the Machine. To mark the occasion, he decided to jump out of a plane. It didn’t start off so well. Budden was sick and mad at his manager for not showing up at 6 a.m. Nonetheless, the New Jersey rapper took the leap and afterwards revealed his plans to release the project on October 21. In the skydiving video, a preview of Budden’s latest track “By Law,” can be heard in the background. Rage & the Machine is available for pre-order on iTunes.
