This is a pretty new sound to hear from someone like Joe Budden. The New Jersey rap-veteran has made a career of spitting bars about his depression and his lady problems over downbeat production.
However on “NBA,” Budden is doing some good ol’ fashioned swag rap over a relatively radio-friendly beat done by Vinylz and Boi-1da.
The track works well, especially when you add in the verses from the stoner and the Coke Boy, Wiz Khalifa and French Montana.
Check it out above and look out for No Love Lost, which drops on Tuesday.
