Troy Ave Releases Joey Bada$$ Diss Track “Bad Ass” (AUDIO)

(AllHipHop News) It’s Brooklyn vs Brooklyn. Troy Ave has taken his issues with Joey Bada$$ to wax. Last July, the two rappers exchanges messages on Twitter about which NYC native was the top independent artist in Hip Hop. Now Troy has released a diss record aimed at Joey titled “Bad Ass.”

Apparently, Troy was sparked to fire lyrics at Joey because the Pro Era member mentioned him on the “Ready” record. Joey rapped, “My n*gga Kirk just out sold Troy Ave.”

Troy Ave faced tremendous bad press and social media ridicule after his Major Without A Deal album reportedly only sold around 7,000 copies in its first full week of release. In comparison, Joey’s B4.DA.$$ moved over 53,000 (57,000 SPS) copies in its first week [editor’s note: official sales numbers for Kirk Knight’s Late Knight Special could not be determined].

In response, Troy spits, “You sold a couple records, but nobody cares. You’re never on the radio, because nobody cares. You don’t matter, so you’re mad bruh. Nobody cares. Just an internet rapper. Nobody cares.”

  • mr morgan

    Troys track wasn’t bad at all

  • Obi Won

    Joey track was good of course, and Troy joint was cool, except that weak ass hook. That second verse was brutal though.

  • Damany G

    I fux with Ave and Badass and the whole Pro-era, I hate battles like this…. just 2 very different lanes

  • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

    I don’t DISLIKE Ave. I listen to Bada$$ heavy, wasn’t feeling this though. I didn’t hear Troy Ave’s yet.


    Troy Ave is an internet rapper too. This is why New York Stay losing. All quick to tear each other down and wanna kiss the a$$ of anyone not from NYC.

    They shoulda done a song together instead.

    • Weedras

      Troy Ave been around before shit went full scale online

  • ursocalledgod

    why is joey even responding to this garbage ass nigga? new York niggaz smh. yall boys fell ALL THE WAY OFF. yall even got 2nd and 3rd tier rappers going at each other lol

    • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

      everyone beef though. are they supposed to get along because they aren’t “1st tier rappers” ? I don’t see what you’re saying.

      • ursocalledgod

        I’m saying I consider Joey a 2nd tier mcee Troy not even a 3rd tier. He might be to east coast niggaz, but out here in the Midwest, and the south I NEVER here anybody checking for his garbage. You don’t beef with niggaz below you is my point. Joey shouldn’t even entertain this thirsty attempt. This would of never been a story out of the NY when them niggaz had the game locked.

  • shm troy ave p[layed him self

  • MidWestFlyest

    Joey gonna roast Troy off that Steez line alone, can’t wait! #47 #RIPSTEELO

  • L.J.1984

    One thing about NYC rappers it’s always crabs in the barrel amongst each other. But let some cornball outta town rapper come through, they’ll Cosign him quick.

    • yomomma

      for real,one of the reasons ny rap isnt what it once was

  • yomomma

    theres a saying…’pick and choose your battles’, they both takes Ls for this

  • THISIS50

    pretty dope track

  • Juleo478

    They both got busy to me but i think Troy’s song was better.

    • Anthony Mason

      It was a better diss track . I don’t think he needed to talk about his (joeys dead friend) like he did today on shade 45…

      Suicide is wrong but so is how Troy is living. Snake a** fraud nigga. I’ll s*** on him more again like when he went his sales went girl scout cookie after studio overhead and promo. Nigga went onto debt to drop that b**** a** low budget hoe plastic doughnut…..

      • Juleo478

        Yea that dead homie thing was out of line but I could be mistaken didn’t Joey diss him first.

      • Anthony Mason

        He did but Troy is a jerk for that….

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      hey even lil b has a fan base !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lmao

  • Markus

    This isn’t even KRS-ONE vs.Nelly. Pass.

    • ZUBU

      LMAO…. Back in the day KRS-1 vs Nelly…. KRS just hit him with fact it wasn’t even funny. Take one song from each… MY PHILOSPHY vs IT’S GETTIN HOT IN HERE…LMAO… Yet Nelly had his lane but you know KRS is true hip hop, Nelly just trendy, and I like Nelly’s music I enjoyed it. It was like grade school music vs college/grad school music…

  • J. Smith

    57000 people cared… I f**k with Troy Ave, but this isn’t what I would call a good look. (Just my opinion). My nephew and all of his friends swear by Joey Bad Ass. Add in the fact that he refused to go commercial, and this song is completely senseless. He’s never on the radio… (Still sold more than you). Not hate, just reality.

  • Dox

    troy ave vs…WHO?

    • Mo Cash

      nah troy who?? vs who??

    • STEPH


  • Mo Cash

    why does anybody care??

  • Black Exodus

    First, Troy Ave….diss song was very, very weak! Not a Joey Badass fan, but the song was decent! Now…why are these guys beefing when the world is going through some serious changes…and since both of these “new age rhymers” got the ears of the sheep…talk about “something”! Man, this is the perfect time to create a “lane” and drive right through it! Really, it’s too much ish going on, not to be talking about something! Remember most “rappers” have a ten year time window…don’t waste it on wack beefs. Oh yeah, why you 2 Brooklyn “rhymers” fighting a Harlem cat by the name of “Dave East” is on his way. Just my 2 cents…as you were.

    • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

      Ohh cool. You have a friend who raps too ??? So do I.

      • Black Exodus

        Not my friend… I first heard Nas name drop this kid “Dave East”! So it seem as if Nas is behind this cat. Checked’em out and he’s talented and gaining some ground. He’s all over youtube. Again…Just giving my 2 cents…and 2 cents can’t buy “ish”. lol

    • James lewis

      *while you 2 Brooklyn “rhymers”

      • Black Exodus

        Mr. James Lewis, I’m entitled an “ebonic” sentence rather…incorrect diction exquisitely expressing the aforementioned topic of two Brooklyn rappers and their petty beef. Again, just giving my 2 cents and my 2 cents can’t buy “ish” in this voluminous land of opinion. lol Enjoy your day pimp!
