Joey Badass Performs Unreleased Song “Temptation” at Camp Flog Gnaw Festival 2016
Joey Bada$$ gave fans at Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Festival a preview of the highly anticipated A.A.B.A. album. The Pro Era member performed an unreleased track called "Temptation" during his set. It was not the first time the song's been performed though. Joey originally debuted the track at the 2016 Coachella Festival.
The Brooklyn rapper was part of a star-studded lineup for day two of the Camp Flog Gnaw Festival. Joey was among a group of performers that included Erykah Badu, Anderson .Paak, Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt.
"Temptation," much like the previously released single "Devastated," shows that Joey is taking a new direction with the sound for his next LP. The young rapper recently compared A.A.B.A. to vegetables in the midst of a hip-hop scene filled with candy.
“This new project is very powerful,” Joey told Wild 94.1. “That’s the best thing I can say about it: it’s very strong music. It’s like hella vegetables. It’s hella good for you, and it’s almost my hesitance with it: the fact that it’s so good for you, because these kids these days want candy. ‘Devastated’ is almost like the organic candy because the message is still good for you.”
Unfortunately, fans will not get to hear A.A.B.A. in 2016. Although the album is 90 percent done, Joey has delayed its release until early 2017. The project was originally scheduled to drop on Nov. 8, according to a recent tweet by the former XXL Freshman.
