New Music: Joey Bada$$ - 'King of the Jungle'
Is Brooklyn in the house? Without a doubt.
In the late hours of March 9th, the anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.’s death, Joey Bada$$ unleashed his Biggie-inspired track “King of the Jungle.”
Over Salaam Remi’s boom-bap drums, Jozif Badmon unleashes a flurry of bars and flows, reflecting on his schooling in hip-hop university.
“I bought tracks with the late, great Christopher Wallace / I’m a hip-hop scholar, graduated with the young God honors / And the wisdom and the knowledge from all of my forefathers.”
Elsewhere, the BK MC boasts about how hip-hop has allowed him to carve out a better life for himself. “I was raised in them neighborhoods so impoverished,” he recalls. “Now I get a little taller when I stand on my wallet.”
