Joe Budden

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.
