Joey Bada$$ Recruits Some All-Star Collaborators For His New Album
More than two years ago, when Joey Bada$$ released his album debut B4.Da.$$, the Brooklyn, New Yorker did so largely free of major guests. Peers such as Raury, Maverick Sabre, and BJ The Chicago filled out the MC’s debut. Even his Pro Era cohorts, who were instrumental to acclaimed mixtapes, sat out the Sony Red-distributed LP. While vocalists were not high profile (by many standards), production, ranging from DJ Premier to The Roots to Statik Selektah to Hit-Boy was. As a sum of its parts, the LP went to #5 on the charts and proved that the 2010s mixtape dazzler could convert his talent to commercial success.
Gearing up for April 7’s All Amerikkan Bada$$, Joey is trying a different formula. The MC who has worked with A$AP Rocky, PRhyme, and Action Bronson opened up his studio doors. J. Cole, ScHoolboy Q, and Styles P, and are among guests. Meechi Darko of Flatbush Zombies also appears on the 12-track effort. Jamaican Reggae artist Chronixx is the lone returning vocal artist from the debut. The track names and guests were confirmed by “Bad Mon” on Instagram today (March 13):
