Joe Budden's got issues. And, as usual, his new disc, Mood Muzik 3: For Better Or For Worse, does little to hide them. On perhaps the most anticipated mixtape ever, Budden delves into strained relationships, breakups with women, and music industry pitfalls, churning out the project that's topped hip-hoppers' wish lists since Kwanzaa ‘06. Packaged with a behind-the-scenes DVD, MM3's chocked full of enough lyricism to combat a year's worth of "Ay Bay Bay” spins, and enough misery to remind you that your life isn't nearly as bad as Joey's. -John Kennedy
