Here we go again…Joe Budden’s highly anticipated sophomore album “Padded Room” has been pushed back from October 28th, 2008 to February 24th, 2009. But, have no fear! Joey, always being loyal to his fans has decided to release “The Halfway House” a digital only album featuring 14 BRAND NEW songs. This was released yesterday, in place of “Padded Room”. This is the first ever digital-only hip hop release employing both traditional marketing methods (commerical radio, video, advertising campaigns, etc) and new media viral marketing initiatives. The album was released exclusively in digital format on AmalgamDigital.com and iTunes.
â€œThough Iâ€™m not happy about it being pushed so far back, I do understand the method behind the madness. We’ve got an album Iâ€™m extremely proud of and a lead single that Amalgam Digital and I are both very happy with, but for those of you who are just as anxious as I am, I apologize,â€ said Joe Budden.
Ya’ll go cop that album now! Joe stay bringing that heat!
