Joey Bada$$ – “Unorthodox” (Prod. DJ Premier)

posted by: D Prep New Music Daily

I’ve been waiting for this one for a few days since the snippet dropped, and now we have the complete, CDQ version of Joey Bada$$’s “Unorthodox” produced by none other than the legend himself, DJ Premier.

I’m not going to say much about Premo’s beat–what is there to say, really? Perfection is perfection–but Joey’s flow here sounds like it could have come out of Brooklyn anytime in the past 25 years. He has the timeless BK, chilled out, off the dome flow that Notorious became so famous for. Now, that’s not to say that he’s on Notorious’ level so don’t freak out; but that tried and true , rap battle flow is what Joey is becoming famous for spitting.

It will be interesting to see what route Bada$$ takes in the near future. He just got a huge look on A$AP’s “1 Train” along Danny Brown, Kendrick, Yelawolf and Big Krit, among others, and as he explicitly lays out in “Unorthodox,” he won’t consider any offer less than 3 million, which is right about what Kendrick and A$AP first signed for.

Will Joey Bada$$ be that big? Is he worth that kind of investment?

If you ask me, absolutely. Only time will tell.
