Joey Bada$$ - Feather (prod. by Nujabes)
This was recorded three years ago when Joey Bada$$ first started making his own hip-hop at the age of 15. You can actually tell how much he improved in just a year by comparing this to the music he made at 16. The instrumental for Feather is also my second favorite Nujabes production. I’ve used it a couple times for my mashups, such as Tupac - Hold On To A Feather (Nujabes Mashup). I also enjoy that at 0:29 his voice clearly cracks, “keep my he-EAd to the sky”, further exemplifying just how young he is.
"Lil’ nigga came up, 15; I snatched the microphone.
Better than these dudes that got twice my testosterone.”
Here are some of my favorites that I’ve already reviewed.
