After spending a couple of years gestating in the mixtape underground, the young Brooklyn boom-bap revivalist Joey Bada$$ is finally about to release B4.DA.$$, his first proper album. And after sharing the purposeful early single “No. 99,” Bada$$ has gone into reflective mode on “Curry Chicken,” the latest album track he’s made public. The song pays tribute to Bada$$’s mother and to his Caribbean roots, and fellow retro formalist Statik Selektah supplied the DJ Premier-esque beat. Listen to the song below.
