Joey Bada$$ – B4.DA.$$ Review

This is a nineties project created in the modern day and it is very close to the mark for what it is aiming for. However it may not appeal to all Hip Hop lovers as it is moving back instead of forwards.

The production is accurate to the thee of the album and, when seen through the right lenses, is great to listen to. However as it is trying to move back to a time when great songs were already made, some may not take kindly to that. However when listened to all the way through it does very well to combine with Joey’s flow and make some great tracks.

The lyricism is good and is scattered throughout all the tracks. On the other hand, with Joey’s fairly rapid flow and his tone against the backing beat, it can be difficult to hear that lyricism and accept it. A lot of it is simply lost to the sounds instead of heralded as great to the listener.

The features are all good and all bring a new dimension to the project. They help to show how Joey can work with others, which is extremely well, as well as showcasing their own skills, which is also done well.

Overall, this would be a great project if made in the nineties, but as it is made in this year, it is a good project with ties to a brighter era in Hip Hop. If moved more into the modern age, not ultra modern but forward, Joey may have more success.
