Joey Bada$$, B4.Da.$$

Married to the sound of New York hip-hop’s so-called golden era, nowhere was this felt more than on Joey Bada$$’s debut studio album, B4.Da.$$, released this past January. With the help of boom-bap icons including DJ Premier, Statik Selektah, and the late J Dilla, the young ball of lyrical dynamite set fire to the mic with his contemporary spin on the sound of New York yesteryear. Not only did this album secure Joey Bada$$’s position as one of the most promising up-and-coming emcees of his generation, it also let us know that he’s gunning for the throne.
