Joey Bada$$

The space-rap production legend J Dilla died almost eight years ago, and it’s crazy that there are still unused Dilla beats floating around out there in the ether. Well, there are, and the young Brooklyn ’90s-rap enthusiast Joey Bada$$ got ahold of one of them, huskily riding it and turning it into a new song called “Two Lips.” Joey sounds fine on it, but the murky, bottom-heavy beat is itself the main reason to listen. And you can do that below.

The “Two Lips” 7″ is out now on Akomplice, the label founded by Dilla’s mother, and it benefits the music-education nonprofit J Dilla Foundation.

  1. This is great. I liked Joey on it. Don’t even need to say anything about the beat because it’s J fuckin Dilla.
