1999 – Joey Badda$$ Album Review

Gabe Deedler

“1999” by Joey Bada$$ is your VIP, backstage pass to meet the artist. Joey’s conversational tone allows listeners to relate to him on a personal level and his messages are clear because he speaks like a friend.

Throughout “1999,” Joey discusses impactful topics as government corruption, police brutality, systemic racism and the loss of loved ones. The album features beats from MF DOOM and verses from Chuck Strangers, Kirk Knight, CJ Fly and many more. The songs are consistently catchy and Joey’s lyricism is unmatched. However, its real significance cannot be missed. “1999” is an earnest reminder of the injustices of our current government.
