Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ has stepped up to answer shots fired his way courtesy of West Coast hip-hop artist Lil B‘s new “I’m The Bada$$” diss record.
Joey hopped onto his Twitter page and laughed off Based God’s new beef record Tuesday evening.
“Don’t let me ether this n*gga yo!!,” he tweeted January 29th.
“@LILBTHEBASEDGOD try again moddasucka!”
“This n*gga said warning shots tho”
“Truthfully basedgod, your not worth the time.. Im glad eye was tho.. Keep bangin”
“A lil offended that he didnt go harder than that..”
“Im about to blaze to this sh*t, cant believe the basedgod dedicated his appreciation for me on a song! So amped”
“Im getting hella followers!!!”
“If i was to diss this n*gga im gettin DMX on the hook, game on the adlibs, joe budden verse 2 and the n*gga who knocked him out to record it” (Joey Bada$$’ Twitter)
Lil B also resorted to Twitter to make sure fans knew the seriousness behind his new anthem.
“Lil B – Im The Bada$$ (joey bada$$ DISS AND WARNING SHOTS) REAL HIP HOP …: http://youtu.be/OfNyPQS5W5Q WARNING SHOT LEAVE LIL B ALONE,” B tweeted.
“@joeyBADASS_ MY SONG WITH DJ PREMIERS GUNA BE BETTER THEN YOURS NAHH NAHH MIGHT HAVE TO HIT THE LEGENDARY@JustBlaze FOR HIT – Lil B”
“@joeyBADASS_ HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE FAMOUS NOW JOEY,#THANKYOUBASEDGOD REAL HIP HOP – Lil B”
“SHOUTS OUT TO THE REAL NEW YORK REAL HIP HOP YOU NO WHERE ITS AT ! EAST SIDE I SEE U OKAYYY IMA TELL YOU BOUT MEEEEEE – Lil B” (Lil B’s Twitter)
On the record, the Based God wastes little time throwing jabs at Joey.
“These n*ggas think they’re bad a**es now, huh? [laughs] … Can’t f*ck with me, these n*ggas know my history / I can make your life into a motherf*ckin’ mystery / N*ggas wonder why they don’t make it when they against me / 40 gonna come like my son walking 6th Street / Shouts out to them b*tch n*ggas, saying that they miss me / I’m trying to see checks like a test in history / But I’m not a h*e (Never) / Know the code (Feel me?) / I’ma take control, I will never fold/ Put me in the jungle with those lions and those wolves/ I’ma get by and survive like I should…” (“I’m The Bada$$”)
According to reports, both hip-hop artists have sparred with one another on numerous occasions.
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)
