If Joey Bada$$ is sitting on 80 unreleased tracks, we want parts.
Joey Bada$$ recently sat down with DJ Enuff’s “Heavy Hitters” Shade 45 show and shared some pretty dope news. Bada$$ admitted that he’s sitting on well over two albums worth of unreleased material and if they sound anything like this month’s singles “Ready” and “Brooklyn’s Own,” then we’re very interested. Apparently these two tracks were just the warm up.
“I am sitting on about 80 tracks,” Joey said. “I may just drop an album this summer. I may drop another in December.”
The Brooklyn emcee says he’s been in the studio with Wyclef Jean and Jerry Wonder and he’s even hoping to get some studio time in with Dr.Dre on his visit to Los Angeles next month. “I heard we were supposed to be working with Dre soon, so I don’t want to f***up the shits…I’ma put it out there just so it could be stronger.” he said. The Pro Era member says he’s getting stronger and better everyday and discusses his growth as an artist as well as his ability to better maneuver within the music industry.
“I feel like as an artist I’ve established myself in the game, but I feel like over the years I haven’t given my fans enough. I am literally getting better everyday. I am growing and getting stronger.”
Listen to the full interview to hear Joey discuss other topics like his beef with Troy Ave as well as him spitting a freestyle over A Tribe Called Quest’s “Award Tour.”
