Joey Bada$$ at the Pageant: "There's One Thing I Don't Love About St. Louis, and That's the Fucking Police"

Categories: Last Night

Critic's Notebook:

Personal Bias:

I got into Joey Bada$$ in early 2012, so I should say I'm a little biased. I don't really think any of the other acts stood up to him -- his cadence and sampling choices are pretty distinct from most current emcees. Sometimes it's hard to put on a good rap show, but Joey is quite skilled. I definitely could have done without the first two acts, though they got progressively better as the night went on. The crowd largely seemed to be there for Ab-Soul.


Ab-Soul to a bunch of white kids, "Y'all wanna go back to the 'hood real quick?"

Merch guy, singing to himself along with this Ab-Soul song, while folding shirts. "They wanna share my wife...they wanna share my wife." I'll never hear the lyrics the same way again.

Notebook dump:

Still one of Joey Bada$$'s greatest lines, "Tell the based god don't quit his day job". See: Twitter beef between Joey and Lil B.

Who wrote this article? Some idiot who isn't really into going to shows and listening to music obviously. Showing up early to shows isn't "hip" hahahaha what a toolbag comment. You want a memo? heres one for you. You are not cool and sound like a fake ass hipster who needs to follow trends to feel part of something. What a joke. I guess anyone can write for the RFT no degree or mind required hahaha.

These thugs always say f the police but hey it's ok to call them to save you. Disgusting. Not all police officers are unreasonable and most of them save lives. They deserve respect, I don't see this punk putting his life on the line.
