Are all better. Is MM2 a great mixtape? Of course, but what's after that? A good tape (I enjoy it more than MM2, way more actually) in MM4, and then 2 tapes nobody ever brings up in 1 and 3. In fact, outside of the internet I've never heard anyone mention Joe Budden unless it was "man you still listen to Joe Buddens?" or they heard Pump it Up somewhere. There's not a more overrated series in hip hop than the Mood Muzik series imo. And outside of "Words of a Chameleon" "Cut From a Different Cloth" "Through My Eyes" and "All In My Head", ALQ is bad. As soon as I heard he was STILL talking about Tahiry on that tape, I knew it was going to suck. What a lame
So, you're basing your "Joe Budden(S)" sucks argument on what people outside of the internet say. As if people on the internet aren't human. I might be one to say, that anybody who's only heard "Pump It Up" from Joe's catalog can't really formulate an opinion. And MM2, 3, and 4 ARE some of the best mixtapes ever created. A LOT of people think so, but just because you disagree doesn't mean it's not valid. But, as said before, everyone has their own opinion and taste.
As far as Tahiry goes, if you can't relate to a relationship with a female... That's on you.
