Rapper Joey Bada$$ is looking for the cash in 2014. The Pro Era leader drops a new track called ‘Get Paid’ to commemorate his new fall trek #B4DAMONEYTOUR.
On the get-money anthem, produced by DJ Relly Rell, the Brooklyn rhymer drops science and bold statements of how he and his crew are on a mission for the green.
Over crisp drums and haunting production, Bada$$ raps, “I can’t pretend this s— don’t bother me / Money for lottery, but can’t solve poverty / The streets is starving me, of all my good will and my sovereignty / I hope my people don’t dishonor me, but I’m just tryna get paid.”
In addition to the song, Bada$$ also delivered some good news — his long-awaited debut album is finished. There’s no word on when he will released the project, but he hopes in due time.
“At this point, the album is completed,” he recently told MTV News. “[I finished it] literally two days ago. It’s been pretty much completed for a while, but it’s like when you make ice cream, it’s that cherry on the top that really brings it all together. The whole time, I’ve been searching for sprinkles, and now I got it nicely decorated and everything, so it’s ready to go.”
Among the producers featured on the album include Statik Selektah, Hit-Boy, DJ Premier, Chuck Strangers, Kirk Knight and Zo Supreme. With all those talented studio wizards onboard, Joey Bada$$’s album should sound spectacular.
In meantime, you can check him out when his #B4DAMONEYTOUR resumes in October.
