For the last 15 years, Joe Budden has made a name for himself by creating music that reflects every part of his personality and mood.
After finding love with Love & Hip Hop co-star Cyn Santana, it seems that Joe is wanting to reflect a little more of his softer side, with his new video for “I Wanna Know” featuring Stacey Barthe off of his project Rage & The Machine.
In the video, Joe is talking to the sample, detailing failed relationships, wisdom and perspective from growing older and most importantly the joys of fatherhood as he talks to his actual son Trey. The 36-year-old MC has entered a new, happier space in his life and it shows throughout, but his new outlook on life is never more apparent than when he talks about his son.
“My child has inspired so much,” Joe told Uproxx in an interview. “He’s inspired this music, this new peace of mind. This new state of mind. He’s just brought so much solace. I don’t even think he knows how much he’s responsible for in me.”
Rage & The Machine is entirely produced by araabMUZIK and features appearances Fabolous, Torey Lanez, Joell Ortiz & Stacey Barthe and is now available via Mood Muzik/Empire Records.
