Joey Bada$$ Talks Putting Pressure On Rap Veterans Like JAY-Z (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Just days after JAY-Z released his 13th solo album 4:44, fellow Brooklyn-raised emcee Joey Bada$$ presented a theory about the project.

“I think I figured it out… 4:44 is the 4th Blueprint,” tweeted Joey.

In a new interview with Montreality, the Pro Era frontman offered another idea about 4:44.

“I know I was an inspiration to that album. There’s nothing nobody can tell me. I put certain pressure on these OGs in the rap game,” said Joey. “They know what they gotta talk about now, cause they got this young n-gga Joey Bada$$ coming out talking about this sh-t before they got the chance to talk about it. It is what it is.”

He added, “I love the album. It’s great. I’m glad he spoke about everything he spoke on, and I’m glad I could be inspiration.”

The conversation also includes the All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ LP creator discussing his favorite anime series, what Kendrick Lamar represents to the culture, conscious rap vs mumble rap, and more.
