Slaughterhouse's Joe Budden recently shared one of his rhyme-writing secrets and revealed the motivation behind his new book, Enter the Mind of Joe Budden.

According to Budden, he prefers to not force out raps when putting together records.

"[The book] was something I felt the fans deserved, sort of like a give back to them, the fans who do more than just listen to music and words and actually relate to all the special pieces in their hearts...I don't write if I'm not inspired," Budden revealed in an interview. "I don't force it at all. When the words start to come, as a writer, some of you guys know, when you get that sudden barrage of words and you get inspired, it's much easier to do that way than trying to force it..."
