Video: Joey Bada$$ feat. Big K.R.I.T. and Smoke DZA – “Underground Airplay”
After spending some time in the lab with DJ Premier, Joey Bada$$ is back to working with rappers his own age. The title track to a new mixtape being put out by fashion juggernaut Marc Ecko, “Underground Airplay” finds Joey, Big K.R.I.T., and Smoke DZA take turns spitting lightning-quick vitriol over a vintage beat of turntable scratches and skittish bass samples. Here’s one of my favorite bars from Joey: “Insane in the membrane from the Empire State/But I keep my mind in the pen state/They wanna know how I keep my pen straight/Damn right, how they gonna bite off my template”.
Check out the track and its grimy Coodie and Chike-directed video below.
