A while ago, I posted a song by Joey Bada$$ – his first single from the album, ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$. The whole album came out last Friday and I have been bumping it ever since.
I haven’t always listened to Joey, as I kinda found the Boom-bap rap boring – but I have certaintly changed my view of Joey after this album. He really has some tracks on this where he spits his ass (pun intended) off, but at the same time I feel like the production is a step up from his previous work.
This song definitely stood out to me on the first listen, but that is almost guaranteed to happen with those features. Meechy from Flatbush Zombies, Kirk Knight who is one of my favorite New York artists and Nyck Caution who I have to admit that I haven’t heard of before.
The beat is gritty and dark. The lyrics hit hard and the chorus is almost nonexistent just as it has to be in a straight up rap song – it was instantly added to my playlist!
Give his whole album a listen if you like the song – the whole album is quality!
