Lil B – I’m The Bada$$ (Joey Bada$$ Diss)
For those who've been closely following Lil B's illustrious career thus far, you should definitely know by now that the Based God isn't one too simply let unflattering remarks just slide. Having already left negative stains on the resumes of hip-hop veterans such as Joe Budden, Ice T and David Banner, it now looks like Lil B has his target set on the hip-hop newcomer and Pro Era general, Joey Bada$$, following some of the lyrics the New York emcee chose to tweet from his track "Survival Tactics." Although the song originally surfaced back in early 2012, the lyric that served as a slight jab towards the Based God states:
They say hard work pays off/Well tell the Based God don’t quit his day job
Now that Joey and his Pro Era crew have attained a notable amount of success since the original release of the track, Lil B has responded in the form of his latest diss record appropriately titled, "I'm The Bada$$." Is this the makings of a modern-day East coast vs. West coast type of beef? Give the track a listen through and let us know your thoughts. Lil B's mixtape Pink Flame is coming soon.
