Nearly two years after Prince’s death at the age of 57, Joey Bada$$ offers up a tribute to the Purple One on Triple J’s “Like a Version.”
Backed by a live band and backup singers, Jozif Badmon performed “When Thugs Cry,” a rousing take on Prince and the Revolution’s “When Doves Cry” from 1984’s Purple Rain.
“Maybe I’m just like my brother,” he sings on the remix. “He’s never satisfied / Why do we shoot at each other? / This is what it sounds like when thugs cry.”
