Joey Bada$$ celebrates his personal accomplishments, as well as those of the NBA, in his new song “Victory,” made in partnership with Mountain Dew.
He told HipHopDX:
“Me and Mountain Dew, we’ve been doing deals over the years. We’ve been building up our chemistry and a solid rapport over the last couple years, so immediately when the All-Star Weekend conversation was brought up, they go to me right away and they decided to get me involved. That’s where I came in. I stepped in, I was challenged to make a song for basketball tied in with All-Star Weekend, tied in with a few NBA players such as Russell Westbrook and Kyrie Irving, but me as a solidified Hip Hop artist, it was a challenge for me to merge both worlds.”
He counts his blessings a few times over Kirk Knight & 1-900 produced instrumental bringing out the authentic Joey Bada$$ that we’ve known over the years. Along with bigging up himself, he also spits lines about the two All-Stars. He raps about Russell Westbrook: “A kid from West Brooklyn, came with the Thunder, every day had the triple double entendre” and about Kyrie Irving he goes on “At times I sit and wonder how we keep from going under, but I always beat the cut like Kyrie Irving at the buzzer.”
