Joey Bada$$ & Chuck Strangers

When people say Joey Bada$$ reminds them of New York’s Golden Age, they don’t just mean his delvery and content; they also mean his sound. Instrumental in the creation of that sonic layout, from the release of Joey’s 1999, mixtape until today, has been his Pro Era brethren Chuck Strangers. Grounded in boom-bap influences but sprinkling in current flavors, Chuck’s production lays the foundation for Joey’s rhymes.
