His flow and subject matter, coupled with killer beats crafted by some of Hip Hop’s most revered producers – J Dilla, DJ Premier, and Alchemist to name a few – are a heady combination. A year on from his launch and the now seminal “1999” mixtape, Joey Bada$$’s first official offering to the UK market comes in the form of ‘”My Yout”, which sees him explore Caribbean roots teaming up with Reggae artist Collie Buddz.

Lyrically “My Yout” sees Bada$$ reflecting on his sudden rise with a sense of balanced gravitas that far exceeds his years, an engaging trait that runs throughout his rhymes. Musically, it packs the rolling swagger of a golden era Hip Hop beat and the laid-back flair of a jam straight from Jamaica. Already on a steady rise to notoriety “My Yout” is set to accelerate Joey Bada$$’s assent and firmly establish him in the UK.
