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$$ – “Land Of The Free” (Live Performance) [Video]

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.)

‘Sneaker Shopping’ With Shoe & Microphone Fiend Joey Bada$$ (Video)

His dream shoe might be the All Day I Dream About… ya know. But you gotta dream about a possible dream collaboration between Joey Bad and ADIDAS. If you are into the shoe game heavy, that is.

Joey Bada$$ goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Alumni in Brooklyn, and talks growing up as a Jordan head and the mix of sneakers with politics.

Interesting. Joey comments on the former First Daughter from last administration rocking a Pro Era tee. Then he comments on Under Armour’s honcho stumping for the current President, Donald Trump. Kinda makes Joey Bada$$ a two-term political pundit. When it comes to apparel maybe. Maybe.

Ha! Watch and learn a bit Joey’s aspirations (non-political, basketball), choices in kicks (including a possible pick for his pops) and more.

Joey Bada$$ Breaks Down “Land Of The Free” (Video)

What’s really cool about these videos where artists break their lyrics down… we get to learn not only about their throught processes with the lyrics, but about their thought lyrics as a person. For this Joey Bada$$ break down for his “Land Of The Free” jawn, even more so. DOPE!

Joey Bada$$’s politically charged track “Land Of The Free” was released on his birthday—and the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. It’s a single from his forthcoming album AABA but serves as his personal statement on the current state of America and his ambition to create change for the future.
