Last night, Lil B, former member of The Pack, and Pro Era frontman Joey Bada$$ went from sending shots at each other on Twitter, to quickly jumping in the booth and recording diss records.
The issues between the two rappers started after Joey sent the following tweet on January 28:
Tell the @lilbthebasedgod dont quit his day job!!
— oG $wank. (@joeyBADASS_) January 28, 2013
Joey’s tweet is a reference to his late friend, rapper Capital STEEZ, who spit that line in their collaboration “Survival Tactics“, but Lil B clearly took the mention of his Twitter handle as a diss.
The Berkeley California rapper, also known as “The Based God,” sent out a series of tweets (later deleted) aimed at Joey.
Lil B also responded by releasing a track called “I’m The Badass” where he addresses Joey with the line, “and if you really think you a badass/I’ll turn you into trash/you little b**ch.”
Joey did eventual decide to take the dispute to wax. The Brooklyn native uploaded a track called “”Don’t Quit Your Day Job” to his Soundcloud page.
The record features a sample of Janet Jackson’s “That’s The Way Love Goes” and opens with the lines, “I got an issue with this little bitch Shih Tzu/I’m a pit bull with lyrical missiles that won’t miss you.”
Joey also uses the new record to show his respect to Bay Area hip hop by shouting out North California legends Too Short, E-40, Mac Dre, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Hieroglyphics at the end of the song.
He also ends the track by jokingly sending a shout out to Lil B as well before adding “fuck your bitch.”
Lil B has yet to respond to “Don’t Quit Your Day Job” with a new track or tweet.
Who do you think had the better diss record Lil B or Joey Bada$$?
