Joey Bada$$ & Logic Go Bar For Bar In A Cypher Strictly For The Love Of Hip-Hop (Full Video)
While much attention has been focused on the unspoken competition between Kendrick Lamar and Drake in the quest for 2017’s biggest album, both Logic and Joey Bada$$ released 2 of the finest LPs of the year. Each featured heady concepts, strong lyricism and beats made for the body and the mind. Fittingly, the two like-minded MCs decided to take their shows on the road together.
This week, both Logic and Joey enjoyed a moment that was not for the critics, sales or fans, but strictly for themselves. While both are about the art and the business, at their core, they still do it for the love. That was on full display, as they sat on their tour bus after the show and sparked up an impromptu freestyle cypher.
Both MCs went off the top, vibing off one another, often picking up where the other left off. It was not a competition, but rather a freestyle fellowship, in which each artist celebrated the craft of the other and the brotherhood they share as leaders of the new school. At the end, Logic acknowledged the levity of the situation, by declaring “Hey man. I’m f*cking lit.” It was a true Hip-Hop moment.
A shorter Instagram clip surfaced earlier, but this is the full video.
