Joey Bada$$ has succeeded in crossing another item off his bucket list whilst creating beautiful music. Firstly meeting his grandfather for the first time during his ‘My Yout’ video and now working with idol J Dilla, albeit posthumously, on a new 7-inch titled ‘Two Lips’.
We brought news of the philanthropic Akomplice x J Dilla x Joey Bada$$ capsule collaboration a little while ago but now you can stream the single below before its limited edition release on Friday November 29th. Using an unreleased J Dilla beat, the B-side to the album also features the original instrumental track.
Chatting to Rolling Stone, Joey Bada$$ had this to say about the posthumous collaboration:
“Working on this project alongside Akomplice and the J Dilla Foundation was a great success. I thank both parties for allowing me to be a part of it and allowing me to use unreleased beats by my favourite producer of all time. It’s a brighter day.”
