You heard it here first, Booth readers: Joey Bada$$ has laid mainstream rap’s most ubiquitous catchphrase to rest, once and for all. OK, maybe not. Though this cut, a staff-selected standout off the Pro.Era ringleader’s just-released Summer Knights mixtape, bears the provocative title Death of YOLO, the artist seems more interested in raising questions than dismissing Drizzy‘s Motto wholesale. Over Bruce Leekix’ mesmerizing boom-bap instrumental, Joey imagines meeting his maker just minutes after attaining everything he’s worked so long to achieve. Smoke DZA offers a more laid-back perspective on the guest tip, indulging his taste for kush and one-night stands in a blasé middle verse. If this appetizer’s left you craving more, well, what are you waiting for? Click here to cop Joey Bada$$’ latest opus for free via the Booth.
