Statik Selektah Talks Joey Bada$$ Collaborating With Sean “Diddy” Combs
“We up to something,” wrote Bada$$ on IG.
The Brooklyn emcee’s longtime production partner Statik Selektah was a guest on A Waste of Time With ItsTheReal podcast, and he spoke about Joey’s new connection with Diddy.
According to the Boston-bred DJ, Combs met Bada$$ during Kendrick Lamar’s performance at the Rolling Loud Festival in May.
“They ended up getting real cool. The rest of the week we were in the club with him every night,” said Statik. “We were at his crib. I don’t want to give away too much, but we had a real good time. Puff was real welcoming.”
He added, “The way Puff was talking to Joey was reminiscent of that Bad Boy, Brooklyn – it was a good vibe… Something amazing is going on with that.”
Statik Selektah provided tracks for the Joey Bada$$ albums B4.Da.$$ and All-Amerikkkan Badass.
The Roc Nation affiliate’s own 8th studio LP is expected to arrive this summer.
