His debut album, Joe Budden
, spawned the Grammy-nominated smash "Pump it Up" and earned him music spots on soundtracks for hit movies like Mean Girls, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Cradle to the Grave
and You Got Served
. Nearly ten years since his introduction to the music world and Jersey City's front man still survives in the industry. With ten solo projects under his belt, Budden is now a member of the newly-formed rap group, Slaughterhouse
, who recently signed to Eminem's
Shady Records. Although part of a team, the New Jersey native still makes time to focus on himself and propel his solo career, working on soon-to-be released mixtapes and studio albums.
