Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ recently took issue with a XXLmag.com news story previously titled “Joey Bad$$ Wants To Channel The Energy Of Nas, Jay-Z And Big L On New Album,” and expressed his frustration via Twitter today (April 21).
XXLmag.com caught up with the rapper last week at the WAT-AAH! pop-up concert to speak with him about his upcoming debut album, B4.DA.$$ (Before The Money), for an interview that would later be criticized by Joey.
Fuck what the media write bitch…..

XXL is not the first rap outlet criticized by Joey for pigeonholing him in the “90′s era box”. In an interview with HipHopDX last October, Joey stated that the interviewer and other media outlets’ pigeonholing him is what causes new fans to shy away from his new music:
