Today, on Twitter, Joey Bada$$ prepped his fans for his upcoming music release, telling them to get “#Ready.” Later Ebro Darden premiered the Ready track on his Beats 1 radio show and even hinted about an album in the works.
The track produced by Statik Selektah, boasts about making money and taking over. And with his latest lecture endeavors, Bada$$ sounds focused and ready to make moves.
Aside from building his hip hop empire, the Brooklyn MC is also channeling his energy into public speaking. On Friday Feb. 19, Bada$$ spoke in front of a crowd of 300 people at New York University. He shared insight on navigating through the music industry while remaining an independent artist. He even gave a taste of a new song and recited the verse acapella. Before ending, Badda$$ left the students with some key advice and motivational encouragement, especially for those aspiring to become artists.
Next week, the Pro Era member will hit the road and head up to Cambridge, Massachusetts to give a lecture at Harvard.
With a top-5 charting album, involvement in a Calvin Klein ad campaign , a worldwide tour, and now lecturing under his belt, Joey is well on his way to developing into a hip hop mogul.
