Joe Budden, who is always a nice guy, was in the city last night celebrating the release of his much anticapated and blogged about sophomore album, Padded Room. Joe and some special guests (including wifey) took over the New Era flagship store for this low key event. (i.e. no sunglasses, retarded egos, or overzealous doormen)

King Magazine also had a reason to celebrate last night, and hosted their 50th issue release party in a private loft right off Canal Street. Unfortuntely, there were some sunglasses, retarded egos, and overzealous doormen in the building, but it was fun nevertheless. Peep the footage.
