Joey Bada$$ recently linked up with DJ Premier to record the free track “Unorthodox,” released through Green Label Sound.
The 18-year-old emcee stopped by Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning to discuss and perform the track with Sway Calloway and Heather B. He said that he signed a one-off single deal with Mountain Dew for the track and they put in him the studio with Primo.
“Shout out to Mountain Dew and Green Label Sound for linking that up,” he said. “I did a one-off single deal with Mountain Dew and they just hooked that up for me. I was like I’ll do this for you, and we just gon’ get you in the studio with Premier. That’s how it happened. It was like a dream come true.”
