Since his transition from artist to media personality and podcast host, Joe Budden has been regularly in the headlines.

After sharing a snippet online, many listeners were stumped since Vic praised Joe Budden and his Mood Muzik 3 mixtape in a tweet on New Year’s Eve. Hear the full freestyle below.
