Joey Badass is preparing to release an album, AABA, he spoke on how he feels about his place in the rap game. While doing an interview with Genius, he speaks on his musical influence, one of which being 2Pac.
The topic was Black History Month. Joey says,
“I believe I am one of the minds that Pac said would spark to change the world. I’m probably not the one that is going to change the world; probably the one after me. It’s a part of me wanting to have their messages travel further, because their messages resonate with me. I know there is a lot of people out there that resonate with me, who don’t necessarily resonate with them.”
He states that he doesn’t believe Pac could go toe-to-toe with him. In fact, Joey says,
“I already know I’m a better rapper than 2Pac is. That’s just facts. One on one battle, I’ll flame Pac.”
Very confident to say the least but Pac as we all know is legendary.
