“I’m grown, I ain’t watching the throne, I’m sabotaging it” – Joe Budden, Shady 2.0 Freestyle 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards
Prolific tweeter and part time super emcee, Joe Budden released a new track via his favorite online medium today. Complete with references to Joe Paterno’s death, Drake and Common’s beef, Love and Hip-Hop and the San Francisco 49ers’ unfortunate kick returner, Budden’s “No Church In The Wild” is obviously fresh from the studio. While the verse does have a Skillz “Rap Up”-kind of quality to it, from all of the references dropped, the topicality is still surrounded by substance. With lines like “I’m not a role model/I’m a piece of shit/A product of never being given a piece of shit” the self-proclaimed Slaughterhouse founder is able to elevate the track from just a gimmick to something a bit more gut-wrenching.
