Joey Bada$$ – “Catharsis”

Some consider Joey Bada$$ to be the new face of Brooklyn hip hop/rap. His latest release, “Catharis” may state their case. With this track not appearing on his solo project 1999, Bada$$ blessed The Smoker’s Club and their upcoming project, Good Talk Vol. 10 with it. According to Bada$$, this track was recorded 9 months ago. Either way, stream and download. Shout out to Vice/Noisey for sending the track through! If you’re in the New York area, check out their spotlight show featuring Bada$$ and the Pro-Era Crew at New York’s Knotting Factory.
