The tension between Joey Bada$$ and Troy Ave came to a head last night when Ave released “Bad Ass,” a track aimed at Joey’s neck, to Soundcloud last night.
While I don’t know the inner workings of their relationship, the two seem to never have gotten along very well.
Joey’s most recent release, “Ready,” which came after his lecture at NYU last week, he threw in a light jab at Troy Ave, rapping,
“My n*gga Kirk just outsold Troy Ave,”
referencing his fellow Pro Era artist, Kirk Knight, who released his debut project, Late Knight Special, this past October.
Clearly, this didn’t sit well with Ave, who dropped the aforementioned diss last night, and called out Capital STEEZ in the process, claiming that the fallen Pro Era rapper is
“burning in hell”
–an ugly maneuver.
“Don’t get suicidal like ya friend, here’s a casketSteez burning in Hell, my burner’s in my beltI’m really killing shit, you niggas killing yourself
Fucking weirdos, off the roof, “Steer clear yo!”
This niggas tryna fly, he think he a superhero
Splat man! Fuck you and that manAnd all three labels you signed to, they wack man
Here’s the facts manI’m a self made nigga, got it off the curb
You a finger snappin’, poet rapper, spoken word
If it really was the 90s, you’ll be titled as a herb
If ya movie was biography, Revenge of the Nerds!”
