“A journalist who works in Korea who covers underground hip hop artists said that all the famous idols got a pre-assigned time and could leave to go eat or go to the washroom and stuff while other people had to wait. Apparently other rappers got sick and lost their voices and when it was their turn they just couldn't do it and failed.”
some producers that helped in the production of B4.Da.$$ where Pro Era members Kirk Knight and Chuck Strangers, as well as Statik Selekta, DJ Premier, Hit-Boy, J Dilla, The Roots, Samiyam, Basquiat, Freddie Joachim, and Lee Bannon
This album, is every i expected from a east coast rapper. Joey Bada$$ mentions and gives props to his influence in rap. ( Wu-Tang, Biggie, Big Pun. Etc.) In "Belly Of The Beast” he says; “..its that brooklyn sound that profound that Biggie would be proud about..” and i have to agree with Joey Bada$$, Biggie would be proud of this east coast Brooklyn Rapper. Its that mellow, hip hop, soul vibe type of sound. Not that typical radio shit. Even when he does switches it up a bit in “Belly Of The Beast” (reggae type of beat representing his Jamaican roots) and in “Teach Me” he still kills it.
Favorite Tracks: Paper Trails, Belly Of The Beast, Like Me, Chirst Conscious, No.99, Run Up On Ya.
I highly recommend this album, i always had love for east coast rappers and Joey Bada$$ is on top. Ive been waiting for this album for so long. He has a few features in the album, but Joey knew he could do it mainly on his own.
