Joey Bada$$ – Brooklyn’s Own | New Music
Yesterday was the 19th anniversary of Biggie’s passing, unarguably one of rap’s greatest ever emcees. In honour of his hero, Joey Bada$$ has dropped a new track, riding a warm soulful beat from his trusted and go-to producer Statik Selektah. He isn’t hesitating in taking up Biggie’s left-behind mantle of “Brooklyn’s Own”, rather is actually growing into the role more and more, and here he speaks on the “lives that we’ve lost” through the “genocide going on outside“.
Bada$$ might only be at the fresh age of 21, but as his throwback style reflects, his body houses a much older soul, and he’s got a much wiser head on his shoulders than his age might suggest, urging us to “expand [y]our doctrinated minds“, and to stop “playing possum to the times“. Here’s to Biggie.
