"I'm excited to attempt to make the best album I've ever made."
That's a serious statement, and Joe Budden isn't making it lightly. With latest EP Some Love Lost, Budden's nearing the end of the trio of albums he set out to make a few years ago that turned his sound and his expectations for his own art on their heads.
"The songs on some level are different because I'm different," he tells Fuse. "I've experienced so much in the past two years. Not all good, not all bad. It's been a very turbulent two years to say the least, so I documented that. This is very autobiographical. It's journalism in rap form."
