In honor of his 26th birthday, Joey Bada$$ has gifted fans a new single called “Let it Breathe.”
On the triumphant record, produced by Statik Selektah, the Brooklyn rapper reflects on his career and toasts his successes. “Want you to celebrate me like I’m dead already / Like this crown up on my head is heavy / Put my picture in the dictionary next to legendary / Swear I’m raisin’ every bar, and it’s like thеy never ready,” he spits. The song also received a stylish visual treatment that captures Joey cruising through the city in a lime green Porsche.
“Let it Breathe” is Bada$$’ first release of 2021. Last year, he dropped the three-track EP called The Light Pack and teamed up with Westside Boogie for “Outside.” With his first single of the year out, Joey has more to celebrate: the rapper will be starring in the upcoming Starz drama, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, which premieres in the summer
