‘The Therapist’ Talks To Joey Bada$$ (Video)

All is love…

But sometimes we are just too far down to feel its warmth. We need help sometimes. Sometimes, we need help to learn that we need help in that way.

I like the way the doc inches into the depths with Joey at the start. Joey being allowed to talk. Talking to somebody, esp. a professional, is a good thing… that can bring us back to better things (like full wellness and good mental/emotional health).

Joey Bada$$ grapples with the suicide of friend and fellow rapper, Capital Steez.

Kasai – “Pretty Boys” feat. Joey Bada$$ (Video)

Ha! Thinking Joey stole grub off A$AP Rocky’s plate this go ’round… Isn’t Rocky the one that calls himself the ‘pretty m***erf*cker’ though? Dope alt-pop sound from Kasai accented by the Bada$$ bars peppered on there.

Pretty Boys is the first release from London singer/songwriter Kasai. Starting out writing music in her bedroom just over a year ago, things have come together quickly for the young artist. The song was written in response to her female friends’ experiences on the dating scene. Her long-standing friend Joey Bada$$ heard of the track online and was quick to request a featuring moment.

Joey Bada$$ Gives Props To Kendrick Lamar For His Role In Resuscitating Hip-Hop (Video)

Before we had [Kendrick Lamar], we was in a real critical condition.

Real talk and real respect from one of Hip-Hop’s best… all words from Joey Bada$$… about K. Dot and himself. Young star speaks the truth though. Kendrick has done a lot to keep the craft ‘alive’ and to keep a spot in the mainstream for some real Hip-Hop… AND Joey is one of the best emcees in the game today. #Facts

(Catch a clip above. The whole sit-down is embedded after the jump.)

Joey Bada$$ Says New York Hip-Hop Is Stale And New York Radio Is Not Helping (Video)

Respect to Joey Bada$$. We listen to him on that mic because when he touches mics, he continually earns that respect. Take in what he is saying about the stagnation in Hip-Hop. What he is saying about how things must and do change, including Hip-Hop. Caution: It’s gonna sting a bit of you are a boom-bap-over-trap or new-stuff-is-not-real-rap proponent. There must be a righteous middle ground though. Joey calling old heads on holding the youth in the game back… saying that to ‘Old Man Ebro‘… that’s some live and direct sh!t. But as an early 20-something who’s pretty much a vet, we have to let him say it.

Maybe we should really try to give space on the established (read: old) channels for new artists out here.

Now, of course, there is much more to this interview. But that part packs a punch.

(Okay, Joey. Message received. But we reserved the right to trash trash music.)
