In an exclusive behind-the-scenes video filmed at DJ Premier‘s HeadQCourterz Studio in New York City, Joey Bada$$ and Premier discuss influences, their mutual respect for one another, and a sneak peek into the creative process that went into making of new single, “Unorthodox.” The track will be released for a free download exclusively at greenlabelsound.com on the 14th of January, the week of Joey Bada$$’s 18th birthday. Long inspired by the seminal Moment of Truth album from Gang Starr, Joey’s respect for Premier, someone he considers “an icon,” runs deep. Green Label Sound contacted the legendary producer who had also been paying attention to the positive chatter surrounding Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew, and noted that he “reminds me of how we felt at his age and how I feel now” about music. Joey added that “I really embrace my youth… I’m just making music, having fun, living life.” Stay tuned!
