Sometimes, or a lot of the times, rappers don’t play nice and that’s exactly what Joey Bada$$ is doing with fellow New York rapper Troy Ave.
Appearing on Sway in the Morning yesterday (March 29) the Brooklyn emcee delivered a Five Finger of Death freestyle in response to the BSB rapper’s shots at both Joey and his deceased friend and former Pro Era member Capital STEEZ.
“The drama won’t let up, you reap what you sow,” he rapped during the freestyle. “Men lie, women lie, numbers sure don’t / Got the whole beast coast coming for your skull / The karma gon catch up up, your album sales won’t / Just one up, my collar gon show / Holler back when you getting 60 stacks for the show / Y’all worried bout the club, I’m worried bout the love / By the looks of it, y’all brothers getting none / Brothers getting sonned / They could use a hug / I throw direct shots, never subs.”
In defense of STEEZ, Joey called Ave “Big Dusty” and questioned his longevity in the rap game. Sales has often been a big target of Troy Ave, who bolsters about his luxurious lifestyle and fantastic popularity, but doing little in the way of selling records. Many consider his debut album Major Without A Deal a flop, as it only sold 4,000 copies in its first week.
Did Joey Bada$$ come with a proper retaliation and finally put this beef away for good? Let us know and check out the freestyle below.
