Joey Bada$$ is a hybrid. His cadence evokes hip-hop's yesteryear and his brash swagger remains very much in the now. That makes this studio session with Pete Rock all the more intriguing. "The young generation is what's poppin', man," Pete says in the video. "You cats from my era, stop the whining and crying, man. We're gonna keep hip-hop alive with the younger cats."

So there you have it.
