Green Label Sound delivers again, this time releasing a new single from Joey Bada$$ with production by DJ Premier. Ever since the dissipation of the “golden age” of hip-hop, there’s a lot of talk about the true artform of rapping being traded for style trends and pop crossover, but the reality is that there are still plenty of rappers trying to recapture that classic feel. The problem is that a lot of those artists just sound outdated.
Enter Joey Bada$$. He’s got the NYC sound that wouldn’t have sounded out of place over a decade ago, but he’s also young, creative, and exciting enough for people to rally behind. To bring it all together and let it all make sense, this one is produced by the legendary DJ Premier. Listen to/download “Unorthodox” below.
