Joey Bada$$ hints at a CDQ release of his "Mask Off" freestyle. After that, he'll "keep slaying industry n*ggas beats."
Ahead of his upcoming sophomore album, ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, Joey Bada$$ has taken part in a couple of impressive on-radio freestyle sessions. He started off by tackling Future's "Mask Off," produced by Metro Boomin, while on the LA Leakers' show on Power 106. Earlier today, he surveyed his Twitter followers to see if they would like him to release a CDQ recording of said freestyle. He also asked if they would like for him "to keep slaying industry n*ggas beats."
Of course, Joey's fans want both the CDQ of his take on "Mask Off" and for him to keep going hard with more freestyles. But the tweet has also blown up due to the Pro Era rapper's mentioning of "industry n*ggas," and his implication that Future belongs in that category, while he does not.
Earlier this week on The Cruz Show -- also on Power 106, Joey rapped over Miguel's 2010 J. Cole-featuring single "All I Want Is You." Are these guys also "industry n*ggas," in Joey's opinion? J. Cole happens to be one of the featured artists on ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, along with ScHoolboy Q, Styles P, Chronixx, and more.
Joey likely sees himself as less beholden to the industry than someone like Future due to their respective label situations. Joey's Pro Era operates under Cinematic Records, while Future's Freebandz sits under a "major label," Epic Records.
ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$ drops on April 7.
