Hit-Boy Is Working On Joey Bada$$’s Album
Joey Bada$$ has one of the most highly anticipated albums coming out this year. Joey told XXL in April that fans will get to know him more and he goes more in-depth for his debut album B4.Da.$$. He has been recording in Premier’s studio, D&D.
As fans patiently wait for B4.Da.$$, the former XXL Freshman sheds some light on what producers are working on the album.
“Chuck Strangers, Kirk Knight, Lee Bannon, DJ Premier and Hit-Boy,” said the Brooklyn native last night (July 27) at EBC America Celebrity Basketball Challenge. “We got some good beats.”
B4.Da.$$ is set to drop in the fall. No release date has been announced but fans can expect to get the album sooner rather than later. “It’s coming real soon,” said Joey. “I still don’t want to give the date just yet. Let’s just say about a month into the fall. Matter fact, let’s say about as soon as the fall start.” Don’t expect too many features to be on Joey’s debut album.
Added Joey, “Just put it like this, Biggie only had Method Man on Ready To Die.”
The 19-year-old rhyme slinger is ready to leave his mark in hip-hop and isn’t nervous at all. “I’m super confident,” he said. “I know everything that I got is going hit you in the head. We’re going to be really rocking. I’m trying to put on for Brooklyn.”
