Joe Budden was born in Spanish Harlem, Harlem, New York, and was raised in Queens. At the age of 11, Budden moved to New Jersey, and as he came of age across the Hudson River in Jersey City, he proudly reps New Jersey in his rhymes, despite its somewhat unsavory reputation compared to more traditional hip-hop breeding grounds like Harlem, Brooklyn, the South Bronx, and Queensbridge. Budden experienced troubled teenage years that included been addicted to Angel Dust (Phencyclidine), a drug battle which almost killed him. He won his fight against drugs, cleaned himself up, and firmly set his sights only on hip hop. The middle child of 3 boys, Joe heard music in his home, (his dad is a multi instrumentalist), and on the streets. He absorbed the songs of old school legends like Rakim, Kool G Rap, KRS-One, and Queen’s natives Run DMC and LL Cool J and by the time he turned 16, Joe had decided to take his love of hip hop and his burgeoning skills to another level. « hide
