Joey Bada$$ has used some studio time to commemorate the late the Notorious B.I.G., who died 19 years ago today (March 9). The Beast Coast rapper's new single is a hometown pride anthem called "Brooklyn's Own."

Throughout, the Badmon stands up for peace as he doles out verses that deal with gun violence, the afterlife and reincarnation. A statement from Bada$$ about the song reads, simply, "Rest in Peace to the Notorious B.I.G."

Behind Bada$$'s bars is a Statik Selektah beat full of diamond chandelier organ tones, jazz guitar and breezy boom-bap work. You can give it all a stream down below.
