Three years after the release of his mixtape “1999”, Brooklyn-based rapper Joey Bada$$ celebrates the release of “B4.DA.$$”, his long-awaited and first proper album. But that’s not the only thing to celebrate for Joey this week, as today marks also his birthday. On the occasion he shares a free download, another track produced by Statik Selektah.
“B4.DA.$$” is available on iTunes, Amazon or Spotify.
Ah, what can I say about the Madlib-produced Freddie Gibbs album. Released in March on Madlib’s Rappcats label, “Piñata” is still among my most regularly played albums of the year and my favourite hip-hop record in a long time. So, perhaps it’s needless to say I was pleasantly surprised to hear about a new single released, including the remix you can listen to above featuring guest verses by Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$. November 18th is the day when you can pick up the record on vinyl in all good record stores! If you’re in the U.S., also check out the tour dates for October and November.
