As announced last Wednesday, Joey Badass shared via Twitter that he was releasing new music this week. This Wednesday (June 5), Badmon unleased three brand new songs produced by his frequent collaborator, Statik Selektah.
The first of those songs is the boastful “500 Benz.” Presumed by the title, the track is about fast cars, but also about his way with women.“Honeys falling in my lap like many blessings,” rhymes Joey. “Every night 'fore I take the chance, I ask questions / Somethin' like, can you meet me at the Westin? / And after I fuck you, girl can I fuck your best friend?”
From there, Badmon continues to be boastful on “Too Lit,” on which he rhymes about his abilities on the mic over a smooth sample. “I’m Mr. Fantastic,” he raps. “Everything I drop, another classic / They only mad ’cause I got it mastered / Anything that I imagined, I made it happen / Turned the pen into a wand, I made magic / I’m good with the words but I’m better with the actions / Putting in the work, I’m never relaxing.”
Lastly, Joey softens up as he gets romantic on “Love Is Only A Feeling.” It features a sample of a Homeshake song of the same name.“I love her curves,” he raps. “But what’s more preferred is the way that she articulates words.”
