The Best of Underground Hip-Hop

Joey Bada$$ - 20 Miles

Back in the day Joey went by the name “JayOhVee” and was planning on releasing his first mixtape at 16. He recorded some one take songs for it including 20 Miles, but since the mixtape was never released the songs stayed trapped on Joey’s computer, until now. He released 20 Miles a couple days ago, and it represents some of his earliest recording. I find it amusing yet sad that at 16 his lyrics are doper than 99% of all the other rappers out there. I still affirm though that the music Earl Sweatshirt released while he was 16 is still the greatest work to be released by any hip-hop artist at 16, or that early in their career. Joey Bada$$ has obviously refined his style since this was recorded, and I hope to see this trend continue. In a few years I can see him having one of the sharpest flows in hip-hop history, which is very appropriate since he’s from New York. If you weren’t aware, New York is home to the sharpest flowing rappers in history, such as Big LWu-Tang ClanNas, and Biggie, just to name a few. Joey just needs to stay on his A game. I’ve already posted some of my other favorite songs by Joey Bada$$, such as Unorthodox (prod. by DJ Premier)Righteous Minds, and Indubitable, which you check out if you haven’t already
