Joey Bada$$’ debut full length studio album B4.DA.$$ is officially out now and to celebrate the release (as well as his birthday) he is dropping a freebie with “Born Day (AquariUS).” The track finds Joey going off, sounding jubilant and uplifted. Produced by frequent collaborator Statik Selektah “Born Day (AquariUS)” will not be on B4.DA.$$ but it is certainly worthy of a listen. Check it out after the jump.

CJ Fly of the Pro Era clique decidedly took a different route for this O.T. Genasis “CoCo” remix/freestyle. While everyone essentially adds a mere verse over the monstrous beat, hardly changing anything at all CJ went ahead and changed it up completely. Instead of loving the cocaine, CJ Fly is professing his love for the Mary Jane. Listen to CJ Fly’s “CoCo” freestyle “Dope Smoke” after the jump.

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 doing their best Odd Future here. As in, Powers Pleasant might have something up his sleeve that separates them from their 90s factionalism. Joey sounds smooth over this, and the space between his voice and the keyboards is finally imaginative instead of strict. Check this EDM influenced track after the jump.

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.
