Joey Bada$$ dropped by Hot 97 to chop it up with Funk Flex. As the Brooklynite talked music and memories with Flex, he also hopped on the mic to spit a freestyle for the DJ- and he did not hold back.


Over a bounce beat, he went in on those who doubted him when he was growing up in BK:


“Remember my school teachers never had faith neither. Now I’m at the Ivy Leagues as a big time speaker.”


That line comes on the heels of his recent Facebook post, in which he shared how the split of his parents had a major impact on him as a child.
