Joe Budden has a new album to promote, and what better way to garner attention than literally jumping out of a plane? The rapper went skydiving with Complex magazine and discussed his upcoming project, Rage & The Machine. The dive went off without a hitch and afterwards, Budden talked about the people and ideas currently shaping the direction of his music.
“My kid is inspiring me. My 15-year-old kid who’s about to be a sophomore in high school is inspiring me,” he confessed.”I wanna hear hip hop for adults.”
Producer AraabMuzik praised Budden’s style and investment in making those goals happen.
“Working with Joe on Rage & The Machine was like being in a documentary movie,” said the producer. “He literally poured his heart and soul into this project and used me as an instrument to help paint the canvas.”
