Artist: Joey Badass
Producer: Statik Selektah
Joey Bada$$ has had quite the week. Not long after the release of new single ‘Ready’ and the as yet unconfirmed announcement that he will be dropping an album this year, he became involved in an unfortunate beef with fellow New York emcee Troy Ave. The conflict soon reached boiling point when shots were fired below the belt, and it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
The beef doesn’t take away from Joey’s new track though, as he rides the Statik Selektah-produced instrumental with slick lyricism that has become his trademark.
Listen to the cut that started it all, ‘Ready’, above.
