Joey Bada$$’s “All-Amerikkan Bada$$” is out now and to promote the album, Joey stopped by Ebro in the Morning to discuss the album, early ’90s music comparisons, Troy Ave beef and the state of New York radio.
Joey described the album as a response/commentary to today’s world. The physiological trauma of being a black male in America, Donald Trump and more are on the forefront of this album Joey describes it as a “timely and timeless masterpiece.”
When it comes to the ’90s comparisons Joey faced when his debut album came out, Joey said he just made the music he wanted to see properly represent the east coast, he was the change he wanted to see in New York City music.
Joey also talked about his beef with Troy Ave, looking to gangs to change the community and of course, the New York City radio critiques that have been circulating on social media.
