In My Sleep

Album: Padded Room (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Djbooth.net asked Budden which song on Padded Room, does he consider, best exemplifies his overall growth as an emcee since his debut set. The rapper replied that this tune about dreams and nightmares does, because creatively it's, "on a whole different level." He added: "I could name some other records where the rhyme schemes and the wordplay and the delivery and everything is more complex, but I think, for Joe Budden fans, and for Joe Budden, I like to focus on the creative side, and havin' a thought and bein' able to execute it in the booth. I think that song best displays me being able to do that."
