Joey Bada$$ kicked off the year with his well-received debut album, B4.DA.$$, but there appears to be some left over gems from those studio sessions. Here’s one titled “Perception Vs. Reality.” 

Premiered by Flying Lotus via his BBC 1 residency, the track finds Joey asking some existential questions. He rhymes about the “jungle,” where people are “living in fear” to paint a picture of what it means to be Black, rich, or both.

Hear Joey’s new freebie cut below.
