Joe Budden – I Gotta Ask
Listen to Joe Budden’s “I Gotta Ask,” from his forthcoming album Rage & The Machine.
Joe Budden will release his Rage & The Machine album this Friday, October 21st. Everything he’s put out from the album to date has sounded rock solid. Sunday, he released what might be the album’s most potent song to date: “I Gotta Ask.” Budden laments the state of the rap game, asking rhetorical questions like “Why are you all dressed like Metro Boomin?” over an araabMuzik beat that evokes a similar vibe to Jay Z’s “Hard Knock Life.”
“The beat immediately brought me to a very nostalgic place, it just felt good” Joe told BET. “Hopefully, it’ll have that same effect when others hear it; I’d like for that to resonate.”
