Cassidy and Meek Mill‘s war of words may have petered out, but Joey Bada$$ and Lil B filled in for the latest episode of Lame Hip-Hop Beefs That Escalate Quickly. Yup, that was the story that captured our fickle attention this week.


The whole thing started when young Joey tweeted out a line rapped by his late friend and Pro Era member Capital STEEZ on his 1999 tape, “Tell Lil B don’t quit your day job,” to which the Based God took offence–and took straight to wax by releasing “I’m the Bada$$.” It didn’t take long for the 18-year-old Brooklynite to fire back himself, dropping the obviously much more lyrical “Don’t Quit Your Day Job” a day later.


That was the last of the lyrical exchanges between the two (for now, anyway), but Joey did manage to throw a whole bucket load of fuel onto the fire by appearing on MTV and saying dissing Lil B was “too easy.” That’s when the the Based God’s devout followers, otherwise known as the Task Force, stepped in. They spammed Bada$$’s Twitter account to holy heaven with internet thuggery, forcing him to delete his account on the social network. These memes ain’t no joke, fam.


While we all await to see how this whole situation unfolds in the week ahead (I know, it’s like fucking TMZ over here, but let’s face it, we’re a drama-hungry generation), here’s some of the best music from the past seven days from Skyzoo, The Underachievers, Big Daddy Kane, Fizzyology and The Purist to keep you occupied. Thanks for keeping it strictly about the music, fellas.


1) Skyzoo – “Phone Calls” (prod. by Madlib)



While we’re all still bumping A Dream Deferred, Skyzoo spoils us even more with the super dope “Phone Calls,” on which he toys with a Madlib beat like a cat with a ball of string. It’s the first in his new Band Practice series, which will bring a new track every Tuesday leading up to his live Jazz concert, “The Writings of Skyzoo,” at MIST Harlem on February 10.


2) The Underachievers – “The Mahdi”


Directed by: Luke Monaghan


Before they blessed us with their debut mixtape, Indigoism, this week, The Underachievers teased us with these sunny, slow-mo visuals for “The Mahdi.”


3) Big Daddy Kane – “28 Bars of Kane” (prod. by DJ Premier)



Big Daddy Kane and DJ Premier got us feeling like it’s 1994 all over again. The two hip-hop historians connect for a new collaboration, “28 Bars of Kane,” commissioned by Jordan in the lead up to the arrival of their new XX8 sneaker.


4) Lil Fame & Termanology (feat. Bun B) – “Hustler’s Ringtone”


Directed by: The Rhyminal


Lil Fame and Termanology, aka Fizzyology, get behind the camera with Bun B to visualize their “Hustler’s Ringtone” collaboration. The streets, the studio and the Gilette Stadium also have starring roles. Fizzyology is out now.


5) The Purist (feat. Big Twins, Havoc & Sean Price) – “Cold Hearts”



The Purist is obviously well-connected across the pond. After his dark, Danny Brown-helmed “Jealousy” cut, the British beatsmith gave us an all-gully track from his newly released TR-ill EP with “Cold Hearts,” as tag-teamed by New Yorkers Big Twins, Havoc and Sean Price. This guy’s giving some of our American producers a run for their money.

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
