Last night on a very cold night in NYC , Love and Hip-Hop NYC’s new star Joe Budden held his listening session for his new album “No Love Lost” at the legendary Chung King Studios. Bloggers and socialites packed the studio and warmed up with complimentary cocktails provided by Ketel One vodka and Red Bull while smoking on hookah from the Sahara Smoke Company. Accompanied by his boo the lovely Kaylin Garcia Joe quickly got the session started and urged the crowd to carefully listen to the album and not just be there to be there. I completely understood why Joe even said that after he played the first track ”Top of The World” Feat. Kirko Bangz. You can just tell Joe took his time with this album , the track placement, beat selection, production, features and most importantly lyrics are on all point. It’s rare now and days you can honestly sit down and listen to album from front to back without skipping a few tracks but “No Love Lost” you can easily let play through. Joe caters to every type of hip-hop fan on the album whether you’re a hardcore hip-hop fan , into club bangers and into the smooth hip-hop R&B collaborations “No Love Lost” has it all.The album features production from Cardiak, T-Minus,Boi1da,Vinylz,Dark Knight, 8 Bars, Frequency, Beewirks, Mizfitz Soundz, A6 and SLV. Features include Lil Wayne, Tank, Kirko Bangz, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Slaughterhouse, Kobe, Juicy J, Lloyd Banks, Emanny, SLV, Omarion, Fabolous and Twista.
