Forget about ghosts, demons, spiders and your grandma’s feet; there is something else to be afraid of now. That something is the “Based God’s Curse”. The curse is said to have originated deep within the Amazon Forest and was used by native tribes to…okay not really. It is a curse placed by Lil B (“The Based God”), and it is meant to ruin that person’s fortune, success and in extreme cases, even causing foot fractures.

This year has begun with a bang and a handful of artists are prepping their album releases in these next few months. The “reigning rap supreme” Joey Bada$$ is looking to make an early mark on the year with his highly anticipated debut studio album, B4.DA.$$. Joey was one of the most influential figures in the Beast Coast NY movement that includes Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers, his mixtape 1999 was a critical success, but his follow up Summer Knights was met with lukewarm reception as his smooth flow changed to a much rougher and stagnant style. B4.DA.$$ is the debut album that Joey fans were hoping for, it blends classic boom-bap style of New York with the upper echelon lyrical skill that Joey has become known for. It is a smooth listen from to back, and it contains some of Joey’s best songs yet.
