Joey Bada$$ was one of the artists chosen to perform at Spotify's SXSW showcase this year in Austin, Texas. The Spotify Sessions playlist above features performances from March 20th, 2015.
At just 14 minutes, the playlist includes three tracks off his 2015 album B4.DA.$$, as well as his 2013 song, "95 Til Infinity," and "Waves" from his 1999 mixtape that first brought Joey acclaim back in 2012.
Backed by DJ Statik Selektah, the Brooklyn MC took the crowd back to the 1990s with his old school style and stage presence. He's probably the only rapper of this generation that tells the crowd, "Say HO! Say HO HO!" We have to admit, it's pretty refreshing to hear young rappers embrace the music that preceded them.
From "Paper Trail$" to "Christ Conscious," Joey was able to maintain his energy and intensity as he delivered his rhymes to a very receptive crowd. He is definitely a rapper that stands out in this day and age in hip hop.
