Joey Bada$$ is heading back to his roots, come Friday.
Not only is Joey Bada$$ one of the game's more down-to-Earth and hilarious personalities, but he's also one of the most slept on lyricists out there. Last Spring, the rapper dropped off his politically-fueled All Amerikkkan Bada$$, which alienated some listeners due to the socially-charged subject matter. And while it was an important release for Joey, and clearly a personal one, there's something about Badmon going in over bangers that was sorely missed. It seems as if Joey is keen on starting 2018 off on a different note; last Friday, he posted up a snippet of an unreleased track, which sounded undeniably hard.
For better or worse, rappers posting snippets has become standard practice, and Joey has been no stranger to the custom - we're still waiting for this collaboration with London On Da Track to surface. Luckily, it seems as if Joey has decided to follow-through on his preview, taking to Instagram to announce his upcoming drop. "Fuck it I'm dropping the joint from that snippet this Friday," writes Joey. "My bday Saturday why not? Flood #KingToAGod" in my comments if you're ready for that."
It would appear that Joey is referring to this track, which you can check out below. In it, Badmon raps "now put your hands where my eyes can see, like it's a stick-up, make one false move you're gettin' lit up." Ultimately, it's cool to see Joey back on his gangsta tip, and "King To A God" sounds like it's going to be a gritty, dark banger.
