After premiering the song in Toronto earlier this month, Joey Bada$$ delivers the CDQ for “Amethyst Rockstar,” featuring fellow Pro Era rhymer Kirk Knight.
The Brooklyn MC attacks the track with the noticeably more aggressive flow — it actually has an uncanny resemblance to a bellowing growl — he’s fancied as of late.
A beat from the one and only MF DOOM made the occasion all the more special for Joey. “Last year, eye was getting used DOOM beats from youtube. A year later and everything comes back full circle.. much love to medalfangaz on this one,” wrote the “Survival Tactics” rapper on collaborating with one of his favorite artists.
