JOEY BADA$$ – B4.DA.$$

b4dassOn this, his 20th birthday, Joey Bada$$ releases his debut LP ‘B4.DA.$$’ [pronounced ‘Before Da Money’].  We’ve already heard plenty of singles from the album [the likes of ‘Big Dusty‘, ”Christ Conscious‘, ‘No. 99‘, ‘Curry Chicken‘, ‘Teach Me‘ ‘Run Up On Ya‘ have been released steadily since last Summer], but at nineteen tracks long there’s still plenty to get stuck into.  Despite Joey’s age and the fact that this is his first studio album, this is a seriously accomplished effort.  He’s been in the game four years now, and working with experienced producers like DJ Premier and Hit-Boy clearly suits him.  Those who wrote the talented Brooklyn MC and his Pro Era associates off as ‘throwback rap’ will surely be eating their words – ‘B4.DA.$$’ is brilliant.
