Awaiting Joey Bada$$’s long-awaited album A.A.B.A, who is set to release in early 2017, the young New Yorker blesses us with the glorious “Victory”.
Following the consciously serious “Land of the Free”, Joey gives us something a little more fun – a track part of the NBA’s Courtside Project, in collaboration with Mountain Dew. This one comes as an appetizer to the swarm of impatient Joey Bada$$ fans worldwide awaiting the album.
The production is kept in-house, with Pro Era member Kirk Knight blessing us yet again, in collaboration with 1-900. This follows the release of his debut instrumental album Black Noise:
Joey Bada$$ seems to easily provide us with an old school vibe, keeping the culture relevant while still keeping it fresh.
The hook sounds like “Mos Def meets 50 Cent”, and Joey was definitely not joking around with the pen, with quotable lyrics such as “The kid from West Brooklyn, came with the Thunder, every day another triple-double entendre”. Clever.
Take a listen below, and make sure to check out A.A.B.A, set to release very soon. For all things hip hop keep reading at True Too.
