One of New York’s most exciting rappers Joey Bada$$ dropped his debut, breakout mixtape at the young age of 17 and has quickly gained a loyal fanbase while still only 21 years old. Well today, he’s unleashed one of his most matured sounding songs to date with “Devasted,” which displays a new side of Joey.
He delivers unbelievably catchy choruses to the signature smooth, fast-paced verses and near yelling almost sounding like there were 3 different vocalist on the track. I’ve now replayed this track b2b 5 times after hearing it, so I’d like to say premature evaluation that this is one of my favorite tracks I’ve heard from Joey to date. He has some fitting words for his progression as he states “But now we on our way to greatness / and all it ever took was patience.” Thoughts? Enjoy.
