News: Joey Bada$$ Bids Farewell To Lil B's Career: "I Killed Him"
Thursday, Jan 31, 2013 7:13PM
Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ is not preparing any open apology or looking to make amends with Lil B days after exchanging diss records and has updated fans on his stance toward him.
According to Joey, he has no idea where Lil B's issues stemmed from.
Like fans, Joey didn't exactly understand the timing of Lil B's release, but that's beside the point. "Who knows?" he responded when asked about the BasedGod's motives here. "But if somebody sends a jab at me, I'll just send one twice as hard. I really didn't have to respond, I don't feel so, but I just did it. I don't know why. ... [Actually] it's too easy, that's what it is. It's too easy, so I thought, 'Why not?' I'm just flexing my skill on him." If Lil B chooses to respond, is there any chance Joey will take the time to record another dis track? "No, no, no," he responded, adding confidently, "I killed him. He shouldn't even attempt to do anything again." (MTV)
Yesterday, Joey raised eyebrows with his anti-Based God track "Don't Quit Ya Day Job."
"I got an issue with this little b*tch shiatsu/I'm a pitbull/The lyrical missiles that won't miss you/Rip open your tissue make your task force miss you/And it make no sense to diss you, so I diss you/Nothing but food you little b*tch/I drop nines like cat fish sticks/And shrimp like you and steak too/No b*tch ever gonna get pimp like you, hit you with the cane till you sick in the brain/Ya think drilling your brain/You pink flame a** n*gga/Lame a** n*gga/Publicity stunts for the fame a** n*gga/Bada$$ not lying but you gotta tame that n*gga." ("Don't Quit Ya Day Job")
The diss served as a response to Lil B's "I'm The Bada$$" record.
"These n*ggas think they're bad a**es now, huh? [laughs] ... Can't f*ck with me, these n*ggas know my history / I can make your life into a motherf*ckin' mystery / N*ggas wonder why they don't make it when they against me / 40 gonna come like my son walking 6th Street / Shouts out to them b*tch n*ggas, saying that they miss me / I'm trying to see checks like a test in history / But I'm not a h*e (Never) / Know the code (Feel me?) / I'ma take control, I will never fold/ Put me in the jungle with those lions and those wolves/ I'ma get by and survive like I should..." ("I'm The Bada$$")
Reports claim their issues started well before this week's diss efforts.
Given the shots taken at Lil B on Joey Bada$$' 1999 mixtape, it was only a matter of time before the Based God responded. And today, he does just that with "I'm the Bada$$," which is an all-out diss directed at Joey. Tempers flared between the two on Twitter yesterday when Joey quoted the late Capital STEEZ's "Survival Tactics" line, "Tell Lil B don't quit your day job." Almost immediately after Lil B dropped the song, which can be heard below, the two again sparred on Twitter. We have to wonder if Joey is going to reply with a diss song of his own. (Complex)
