Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ team up for “Beautiful Life” — listen

on June 09, 2015, 7:25pm

Boston producer Statik Selektah has been a staple in East Coast hip-hop for nearly a decade, establishing himself as a brilliant collaborator as well as putting out six LPs of his own. His upcoming tape, the aptly titled Lucky 7, is set to feature a murderer’s row of hip-hop talent like Mick Jenkins, Big K.R.I.T., Your Old Droog, and Talib Kweli, among many others. “Beautiful Life”, the first single off the LP, is an East Coast summer banger with Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ along for the ride.

Over a smooth bass line and some tasty guitar licks, Action goes on about the extravagance of his new life but remarks about having the same phone number, so at least something is keeping him grounded. Joey raps about his “Cadillac dreams” and not worrying about beef but feeling like a cash cow, which is some moo-ving wordplay (sorry). This is the second team up of the two rappers over a Selektah beat this year. Listen to “Beautiful Life” below.

Lucky 7 is due out July 7th. The tracklist is below.
