Brooklyn spitter, Joey Bada$$ is clearly ready to kill it this year. No doubt due to his latest Statik Selektah produced single, Ready, which promises some great things to come.
The Pro Era trailblazer has been kicking back with tours and festivals since debutting the album B4.DA.$$ last year and dropping tracks like “Beautiful Life”.
This new single proves he’s back. And not just back. But back with a few shots at Troy Ave over their past tiff. He spits lines like:
60k first week for the Badass
200k to this day I know you niggas mad
With the 80/20 split my nigga do the math
My nigga Kirk just outsold Troy Ave
Ready was written by both Statik Selektah and Bada$$ and produced by the former. Mixing was assisted by Nastee. The song was dropped via Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 radio show. Ebro mentioned that the Brooklyn rapper has been working on another album likely to drop at the end of 2016.
Check out some more of the bada$$ lyrics:
Man it’s gon’ be a real long time I’mma be around
So make way through the crowd
Swimming through a sea of people hope I don’t drown
Just trying to make waves with the sound
