I’m very delighted to say that I’ve been fucking with a great artist for quite some time. I became a fan of Joey Bada$$ ( badassjoey ) in early January of 2013 when I heard his verse on 1 Train by A$AP Rocky, then I would see 95 Til Infinity surfacing all over the internet. So I played that shit and THAT BEAT THOOO, AND THAT WORDPLAY, AND THOSE DOUBLE ENTREDES… NIGGA! LMAO but from then on I started doing my research and downloaded all his music/mixtapes. 1999, Rejex, Summer Knights, his features/singles allat. I’d read his annotated lyrics on Rap Genius. I was really digging his flow, and every since then I’ve been HOOKED. It’s an amazing feeling to watch and hear one of your favorite artist grow through their music. B4.DA.$$ was an astounding work of art. I loved it, and with each listen it just grows on me more and more. I’ve seen a lot of controversy going around saying Joey is replicating the whole 90’s hip hop/sound. In which I strongly disagree on because the homie grew up listening to 90’s boombap/rap/hip hop so it's embedded him. It’s natural. I’m a strong believer that the music you listen to now or growing up has an effect on your style/how you act, think. I can listen to B4.DA.$$ from start to finish, literally. I can’t get enough of it. My top favs from the album change everyday. That’s how good it is! I’m going to be bumpin it 24/7 because you know… it’s the B4.DA.$$ SEASON!!!proera and the whole BEAST COAST movement is on the rise to success b!
Although I wish My Young Niggas, Big Poppa $wank, & Get Paid would of made the album. It’s still great. I hope he makes a project containing all of his throwaway tracks like he did for 1999. (Rejex)
IF YOU’RE A HIP HOP FAN, LOVER, FANATIC, ALLAT… WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELF I ADVICE YOU TO LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM. OPEN YOUR FUCKIN MINDS! (Meech Voice)
A new project was WAY OVERDUE, and this album made up for it. I’m proud of him, and he deserves all the love and feedback he gets from this masterpiece. :)
