Joey Bada$$ "Run Up on Ya" (ft. Action Bronson & Elle Varner)
Published Jan 16, 2015Even though there are just four days left before Joey Bada$$ drops his long-awaited B4.Da.$$, the New York youngin' continues to whip the hype machine up in full force. A new joint called "Run Up on Ya" is the latest track to leak, having popped up on Joey's pal/producer Statik Selektah's Shade 45 show last night (January 15).
Extra smooth are the fretless bass runs that slide around a classic boom-bap beat, with both supporting Bada$$'s bars about mixing it up with a high-class woman he can count cash with. Elle Varner supplies an R&B-inflected vocal line for the chorus, while Action Bronson bounces into the third verse with some time-travelling lines recalling days reading Word Up! magazine and envisioning future days with girls half his age.
You can hear Joey's shout-out to honeys, mummys and Playboy bunnies down below. B4.Da.$$ arrives in full next Tuesday (January 20) via Cinematic Music Group/Pro Era.
