In 2008, Budden told SOHH he had planned on replacing the series' deejay, DJ On Point.
"Me and him have agreed to disagree on certain things," he revealed. "We're in the early stages, like [choosing a DJ] is one of the furthest things from my mind. We still in to the recording process. I've already started it and then I kinda just stopped to do some other things like I finished Padded Room." (SOHH)
Budden began his popular mixtape run roughly six years ago.
The first Mood Muzik, Mood Muzik: The Worst Of Joe Budden, hit in 2004. The second, Mood Muzik 2: Can It Get Any Worse?, largely regarded as the best in the series, came out in 2006. Mood Muzik 3: The Album hit stores in February of 2008 after being released in 2007 as a mixtape titled is Mood Muzik 3: For Better or for Worse. (All Hip Hop)

The book, which is available for pre-order ahead of its August 10 release, will receive a limited pressing of 300 copies, each being sold for $30 and including an autograph from the emcee. The collection also features an introduction from MC, Senior Writer at The Source Magazine.
