When Joey Bada$$ released 1999, he turned heads with his authentic imagining of 90s-era hip-hop, and we’ve all been waiting for his big break, and the first single from his debut LP just might be it. “Big Dusty” rides a refreshingly retro beat from producer Kirk Knight that compliments Joey’s boast of “Check my style / Ch-ch-check it out” extremely well. Instead of coming out of the gate with a lukewarm entry, “Big Dusty” finds Joey Bada$$ flexing his muscles, successfully whetting our appetite while piquing our interest for a potential album’s worth of cuts like this.
B4DA$$ is coming this fall. “Big Dusty” will be out on iTunes beginning at midnight tonight.
