Get your rewind button ready, Joey Bada$$ came up and tore the roof off the 5 Fingers of Death this morning! With the recent back and forth with fellow New York emcee Troy Ave still bubbling, Bada$$’ determination and lyrical stamina were a thing of beauty as he turned the 5 fingers to 6 and later to 7 as he begs for another beat and proclaims, “I want this to get like a million views so give me one more.”

Mixing subliminal bars with hard hitting straight jabs the Pro Era general will have the folks at Genius and other alike annotating every single syllable. This is a freestyle you need to watch back to back to back to get the full feeling of what Joey Bada$$ just delivered.
