Joey Bada$$ – Hardknock f. CJ Fly

One of the better tracks from Joey’s 1999 mixtape, “Hardknock” features Joey and fellow Pro Era MC CJ Fly rocking over some boom-bap drums and a haunting, melodic line that sounds sort of like a harpsichord. The video just adds to the desperation of the track, with a faceless youth running through the projects, and CJ and Joey rapping in various locations. My favorite shot is the one of them leaning on the door back-to-back. Get 1999 if you haven’t, and check out his new tape Summer Knights too. (and our review of it: )
