Who Is Joey Bada$$?

First Recordings

“I used to record off this MP3, knock-off iPod device I had. I would [put the files on a CD then put the CD in] my Playstation 2 and play it through my TV so it would be louder than my computer, because at the time I didn’t have any speakers [hooked up to my computer]. And then I would put the device on record, and [rap into the device with the beat playing loud in the background from my TV].

 

Nobody really had the same creative sound in my head, as far as the mixing goes. So I would just do it myself.

 

“At this point, I’m just getting used to being in an official studio. A month or so ago, I wasn’t. I was always comfortable recording at home though. I [eventually] had this PC, and I bought this USB condenser mic, and this little vocal editing program, and I just put two and two together and just figured it out myself. That’s how a lot of my stuff started. It would be me not knowing where to start, and then just [learning how to do it on my own]. Nobody really had the same creative sound in my head, as far as the mixing goes. So I would just do it myself.”
