Yesterday Pro Era’s de facto leader Joey Badass stopped by Shade 45 to spit a freestyle for DJ Tony Touch’s Toca Tuesday. Needless to say, Joey spits a badass freestyle over Sean Price’s “Figure Four” and G-Unit’s “Smile”. Though fans are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Joey’s new album B4.DA.$$ they will get a kick out of his freestyle session. Check it out after the jump!
50 Cent and G-Unit looking a bit long in the tooth. Damn near sabre-toothed in Young Buck’s case, whose name seems like a total irony in comparison to his puffy jaw and labored preening in this number.

See hints of rejuvenation in “Watch Me” after the jump.
G-Unit sounds angry to be together but that has sparked some competitive fire in 50 and Yayo especially. Buck also has a gruff piercing bark on the last few Gorilla Unit remakes. Listen to them spit complaints about lack of loyalty after the jump.
