Best of Joe Budden v.2 Recap


It’s taken over six months—that’s a long time, I know—but we’ve finally reached the final stretch of the list. The top three best Joe Budden songs are left, and if you remember the previous list, you can figure out the three songs. You would just have to guess the ranking order.

The list was more work than I expected. I thought I’d be finished by the end of March but I failed. Life got in the way, work got in the way, etc. The list was hard to come up with but I was able to create one that I was satisfied with.

Since I came up with the list, Budden dropped another project, an EP, Some Love Lost. I did hear some songs that could make the list. I guess we’ll have to wait until the third edition.

For those who are lazy, or just don’t want to go through the entire list, I decided to relist the songs here. Plus, I added a brief summary about what the song is about on some songs.

Hopefully this list holds you off until the final three are revealed.
