Just hours after dropping the “Christ Conscious” audio from his forthcoming B4.Da.$$ project Joey and the Pro Era crew drop the official music video. That’s a quick turnaround! In the video Joey does what he usually does: chills around Brooklyn. However, while chilling up on a rooftop he is suddenly elevated up into space. Pretty crazy stuff for 19-year-old kid. Check out the video after the jump.
Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$ long-awaited B4.Da.$$ album will be coming later this year and as promised Joey drops a single from the album. “Christ Conscious”, produced by Basquiat, follows “Big Dusty” as singles from B4.Da.$$. Listen after the jump.
Though “Get Paid” is reportedly not going to appear on Joey Bada$$’s forthcoming B4.DA.$$ that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a listen. Any time Joey blesses the internet with new music hip-hop heads should pay attention. And this instance is no exception. After the jump.
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.$$ they will get a kick out of his freestyle session. Check it out after the jump!
The 90s nostalgia train picked up Freddie Gibbs for a jaunt. The new-gen boom bappers have a way of not dragging the warm instrumentals down with thick lines of poetry, instead Gibbs and Joey make light of time traveling for their flows. Check the street performer video after the jump.
B4.DA.$$ single preview. On “Big Dusty” Joey further commits to this nostalgia journey, going strictly to the New York well for some archival sounds. The eroding piano loops lets his lyrics scrape through dusty vinyl memories. Check the style after the jump.
Like a dad with weekend rights, he hasn’t left the kids for long. Joey Bada$$ provides some more hype for his upcoming album debut after two years of touring his mixtape. Tim Westwood lets him flex over this summer’s standout tracks. Video after the jump.
DJ Statik Selektah brings us another black-and-white video of the vintage-stamped crew of Joey Bad And Friends.
Cops like to arrest black men, especially if they can tag the adjective “rapper” to the suspects. Fortunately, neither of these artists was held in custody, although as Joey shows, this kind of treatment is so absurd it’s laughable.
The Summer Knights EP bonus tracks might be a preview of Joey’s evolving sound, but this one is certainly within their jurisdiction of piano-laced boom-bappery. Nice features, too. That drops today, by the by.
Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.
