Today is Joey Bada$$’ birthday as well as the day that his album B4.Da.$$ is released (which you can cop here). For his fans, the Pro Era emcee decided to drop off this appropriately titled track produced by Statik Selektah to celebrate his “Born Day.”
Before Joey Bada$$ drops his new album on January 20, the Pro Era emcee cuts loose one more track from B4.Da.$$ that features Action Bronson and Elle Varner with Statik Selektah handling the production.
Joey Bada$$ hit BBC1 radio to premiere a brand new song from his B4.Da.$$ album. It’s a little radio friendly jam that you cannot even be mad at.
Joey Bada$$ releases a new track off of his upcoming album with the assistance of producer Freddie Joachim and featuring guest vocalists Maverick Sabre and Dyemond Lewis.

Joey Bada$$ unleashes some new music off of his upcoming LP B4.DA.$$ with some assistance behind the boards from Statik Selektah.
Joey Bada$$, Akomplice Clothing and The J Dilla Foundation have joined forces to donate $10,000 worth of musical equipment to Edward R. Murrow High School in NYC. The school is the one Joey Bada$$ attended and it is pretty awesome to see hip hop giving back. Check out the release below and the video above.
The fruits of the collaborative effort between Joey Bada$$, Akomplice Clothing and The J Dilla Foundation manifested in the form of $10,000 worth of musical production equipment donated to Joey’s alma mater, The Edward R. Murrow High School. The three teamed up for a capsule collection and an unreleased track “Two Lips”, of which 100% of the profits were to be donated to youth music programs in Joey and Dilla’s respective hometowns, Brooklyn and Detroit. In the accompanying video, we see Joey and his Pro Era crew return to a hero’s welcome at Murrow, which includes a visit to the hallowed ground on which Pro Era was founded. Watch as Joey walks the halls and reminisces on his high school years. In honor of J Dilla’s legacy, the collaborators set out to give kids a chance to learn how to make the type of music that J Dilla created, innovating the classroom. Akomplice’s dedication to hip-hop culture runs deep, so it’s only fitting they spearheaded a collaboration that bridged two era’s of hip-hop. In the video, we see that the donation will be put to good use through a freshly minted music production program at the school. Detroit will be next to receive their donation. Also, be on the lookout for Joey Bada$$’s upcoming album B4.DA.$$, set to drop January 20th, 2015.
