I had the privilege of catching Joey Bada$$ and various other members of Pro.Era live back in November when he came through for the B4.Da.$$ tour. Joey’s set consisted of his best tracks from 1999, Summer Knights, and a couple of tracks from B4.Da.$$. Of course he did “Christ Conscious” and “Big Dusty” , but he also did a couple of unreleased songs as well, “No. 99” being one of them. I remember right after he finished it I thought “damn, he needs to release that track”. Alas, he finally has.
“No. 99” is produced by Statik Selektah, who has formed a very solid partnership with Joey now after working with him on Summer Knights and on “Carry On“. It’s another boom-bap heavy beat from Statik and hard-hitting lyrics from Joey. All 3 singles for this album are quality teasers for what’s to come and I honestly can’t wait anymore for this album.
B4.Da.$$ is set to drop on the 20th of January. Stream “No. 99” below.
