MICK JENKINS – WHAT AM I TO DO

JOEY BADA$$ – DEVASTATED

Joey Bada$$ gave an official release to ‘Devastated’ this weekend, a track he performed live on stage at this year’s Coachella.  The Adam Pallin, Kirk Knight and Powers Pleasant-produced track is something of a departure from the Pro Era MC’s usual Boom Bap-influenced output.  We’re all for people switching up their style; but aren’t 100% on…

JOEY BADA$$ – BIG DUSTY

Kirk Knight handles the hazy production on Joey Bada$$’ latest track, ‘Big Dusty’.
