Joey Badass has released yet another brand new track, entitled Brooklyn’s Own.
It happens to be the second single he has released recently that has been produced by DJ Statik Selektah. Joey only premiered Ready a few weeks ago on Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 Show, and now he has continued with some of that momentum that this collaboration has clearly brought him.
Brooklyn’s Own features Joey’s famed liquid flow on top of a dark and laid back beat that harkens back to his earlier mixtape-era releases. While the young rapper laments the world in which we all live in with a precision that exceeds his age. “There’s a genocide going on outside, homicide, suicide, choose a side, you decide who stays alive, who gets crucified.”
It was only last year that Joey released his debut studio album B4.DA.$$, which catapulted him into the public’s attention. The release coinciding with the rapper’s 20th birthday on January 20th. However, he first came into focus three years earlier when his debut mixtape 1999 garnered significant critical acclaim from music publications worldwide. The studio debut subsequently debuted at number five in the Billboard charts and marked him out as one to watch closely in the future.
Continuing with the hot streak, the rapper and university lecturer was also recently confirmed to star in season two of mega-hit Mr Robot. The show centres on a group of hackers who attempt to clear the world’s debts by attacking a large corporation. It will be the 21-year old’s first role as a television actor, set to star alongside Remi Malek and Christian Slater.
