Joey Bada$$ Announces Collaborations With Q-Tip & Pete Rock

Joey Bada$$ reveals that he's been working with Pete Rock and Q-Tip on music.

With a collaboration featuring DJ Premier already in the cut, Joey Bada$$ reveals he's been recording with a number of other Hip Hop icons.

In a recent interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club via Xclusives Zone, the Flatbush up-and-comer revealed that he's been working with Q-Tip and Pete Rock on music. He also said that Premo has been mentoring him about the music business.

"Recently, I've been working with some legends - DJ Premier, Pete Rock. I got the chance to get in the studio with Q-Tip the other day, he revealed. "I'm just extremely ecstatic about all this…when I first met Premier, it was just like me and the Hip Hop O.G. and like, he's riding with you, so like he's trying to make sure you're doing the right things, too."

Recently, Joey Bada$$ dispelled the rumors that he had signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation imprint. He also briefly engaged in a feud with Lil B stemming from the late Capital STEEZ's verse on Joey's "Survival Tactics."

Check out the full interview below.

      yeah, dude can threaten my life and thats o.k. to DX but if i joke around and say they are fixing user ratings that gets removed immediately! ha ha. the new ill bill album page is still not working-dosn't let user ratings effect the total user rating and when you give it a 5/5 the number of people who gave it a 5 does not increase. I tried a few times and then tried it with the new dead prez album and it worked on that, so wtf dx?

    • MAC DRE
      u ever thought that he just could have been a good MC, he reminds me of a young nas, early 90s new york era, articulate with his words, his crew is dope too, doesnt sound like all this bubblegum pop shit u hear on the radio nowadays, everybody be trying to sound like a lil wayne clone, hip hop started with substance

      The gayest thing about Lil B is his fanbase
    • goose
      His fan-base being the one that bought less than 2,000 copies of his album? Not much of a task-force there lol.
