Joey BadaSS track “Rockabye Baby” from All-Amerikkkan BadaSS features Schoolboy Q. A week before dropping his sophomore album All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, Joey Bada$$ unleashes “Rockabye Baby,” his highly-anticipated collaboration with ScHoolboy Q.
Over hard-hitting drums, Jozif Badmon takes aim at the President once again. “If you ’bout this revolution, please stand up,” he raps. “We ain’t got no one to trust / Time is running up, feel the burn in my gut / And if you got the guts, scream, ‘Fuck Donald Trump!’”
But beyond being critical of Trump, Joey also turns the song into a cry for peace amongst Bloods and Crips. “Peace to my Slimes, and peace to my Crips,” he raps. “Neighborhood police and they always on the shift / Protect my Bloods, look out for my cuz / When it’s all said and done, we be the realest there was.”
Overall, the track manages to blend sociopolitical commentary while still going hard as hell. If this is any indication of AABA, we’re going to be in for a dark ride.
