Joey Bada$$ followed through on his promise and delivered three new tracks today, including “Too Lit.” Produced by Statik Selektah, “Love Is Only A Feeling” is laid-back Joey at his finest: not too rushed, not too urgent, just confident and relaxed against an instrumental that feels just as cool as he sounds. He talks about “just trying to make his legacy last” and attempting to stay grounded through it all. For fans of his last album, this is prime.
For the latest we find Joey Bada$$ moving back to his creative, lyrically focused story-telling over smooth, bumping instrumentals that create an undeniable vibe. In “500 Benz” he reminisces driving through the city in his Benz stunting on the people, and the women that only noticed him when the money came. There’s no word yet whether he’s working on a full-length project to follow up but until then these new tracks will undoubtedly suffice.
