Joey Bada$$ Disses XXL On Twitter Over Article Title

(AllHipHop News) This time last year, Joey Bada$$ was being inducted in XXL’s 2013 Freshman class. A lot has changed in a year. Earlier today, the young Brooklyn MC derided XXL over the title of their interview with Joey.

Earlier today, XXL posted an interview with Joey and originally titled the article “Joey Badass Wants To Channel The Energy Of Nas, Jay-Z And Big L On New Album”. The article title has since been changed, but not before Pro Era’s captain could give their staff a piece of his mind on his personal Twitter account:

XXL is not the first rap outlet criticized by Joey for pigeonholing him in the “90’s era box”. In an interview with HipHopDX last October, Joey stated that the interviewer and other media outlets’ pigeonholing him is what causes new fans to shy away from his new music:

What it really is, is that the more you guys do that, the more people turn away from it, ‘cause they just easily perceive it as that. This is fresh new music. From 2012, 2011, and now 2013. 

Joey Bada$$’s debut album, B4.DA.$$ (Before The Money) is expected to be released this Fall.
