The Best of Underground Hip-Hop

Joey Bada$$ - Righteous Minds

I’ve been listening to Joey Bada$$'s mixtape 1999 a decent amount ever since it came out. It’s the kind of stripped down, lyrically potent hip-hop that puts me in a laid-back mood and a smile on my face.  When I’m cleaning or something I’ll just keep it on repeat. Every song on the mixtape is consistently good, but none of them are mind-blowingly amazing. Regardless, I’m sure Joey will eventually get some hip-hop classics under his belt. I mean, he’s only 17, so he has years and years to hone his craft. If Joey Bada$$ is the face of the new generation of hip-hop artists, hip-hop has a bright future. He grew up idealizing the golden era of hip-hop (Big L, Wu-Tang Clan, etc), and consequently he’s made it his career to help real hip-hop fight back.

This is my favorite song off of 1999. You should download the mixtape if you haven’t already.
