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.
