After giving a lecture at NYU on remaining independent and navigating the music industry, young star Joey Bada$$ returns with a brand new single titled “Ready” produced by the all mighty Statik Selektah, dropping the song during Ebro’s Beats 1 Radio show. Joey spits aggressive rhymes reflecting on his haters and boasting about his successful journey so far (and where he is headed). He even addresses his recent paparazzi-punching incident at the Yeezy Season 3 event, rapping “Critics trying to box me/I feel like Rocky when it comes to paparazzi/Somebody stop me.”
The beefy raps also throw a shade at Troy Ave who he had beef with last year, addressing things like “My ni**a Kirk just outsold Troy Ave”. The pair went back and forth over record sales back in June after Joey called himself the “#1 independent hip-hop artist/brand in the world.” Troy tweeted that the B4.DA.$$ rapper was a “fake independent” and cited his big-name sponsorship deals. It sounds like Joey isn’t done with him just yet.
With staying focused on his sophomore album release, an appearance on Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Princes list under his belt and new music, it is a great way of starting 2016 off. Stream the track below
