EDITORS’ NOTES

On his second album, the Brooklyn rapper’s heart still lies with hip-hop’s golden age. While trading verses with ScHoolboy Q and Styles P on “ROCKABYE BABY” and “SUPER PREDATOR,” his deft lyricism is as evocative of East Coast rap’s early-'90s glory days as his buttery boom-bap. His thoughts, however, focus firmly on contemporary America, and he riffs on government, racism, and freedom with absorbing frankness. “DEVASTATED” is entirely forward-facing, saluting his personal triumph over hard times on top of sparkling trap beats.

So kids don't like political hip hop>

Oceans22,

One of the top review says, "I hope it's not political, people don't want to hear that"???? Really? So if you listened to Public Enemy or KRS1 you'd hate it? Wow so i was wrong, nothing happened to hip hop. It's listeners just got simple minded & all they care about is molly & booty!

Phenomenal

Comefghgdfg,

This album showcases the evolution of Joeys music and shows his growth as a human. Going from the chill teenage rapper to a grown up man looking out for his fellow Americans. His words provoke political activism and change in a very compelling way. Love it

About Joey Bada$$

A mix of indie and street, rapper Joey Bada$$ rose to fame by releasing mixtapes and joining the hip-hop collective Pro Era with fellow MC Capital Steez. Born Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, Joey began performing under the name JayOhVee, but changed it to Joey Bada$$ before the Pro Era crew signed to the Cinematic Music label in 2012. It was the same year Joey made his solo debut with the mixtape 1999, which was followed in 2013 by the mixtape Summer Knights. Later that year he made his official debut when the Summer Knights EP landed, featuring four tracks from the mixtape of the same name. A Pro Era mixtape followed in early 2014, The Secc$ Tap.e, Vol. 2.

The full-length B4.DA.$$ appeared in January 2015, filled with productions from the likes of Statik Selektah and DJ Premier alongside Pro Era's Kirk Knight and Chuck Strangers. Even more impressive, the album included a track where the Roots helped complete a lost beat from the late, great J. Dilla. In the years that followed, Joey collaborated with Korean hip-hop artist Tablo and British band Glass Animals. He also secured a recurring role in the second season of television thriller Mr. Robot. His sophomore long-player arrived in 2017. All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ featured guest spots by ScHoolboy Q, Styles P, J.Cole, and others, on a politically charged set that included singles "Land of the Free" and "Rockabye Baby." ~ David Jeffries & Neil Z. Yeung
