A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ are some of the most mysterious young artists we have in the hip-hop community. They love to try out new things, exploring new genres and becoming a pair of the hardest working rappers in the world. The New York products have crossed paths several times and their most recent team-up comes by way of the soundtrack inspired by Game Of Thrones' final season. Already, we've heard a few of the songs on the tracklist, including SZA's song with Travis Scott and The Weeknd, but now, we're finally getting a chance to indulge in Rocky's collaboration with Joey. It does not disappoint either.
Anything being crafted specifically for a soundtrack should come with a warning sign. Beware of people simply phoning in their efforts to get a quick bag. Recently though, a lot more talent and drive has been inputted into the creation of some stellar OSTs with Black Panther leading the fray. GoT came through with a solid list of artists and Joey Bada$$ and A$AP Rocky fit right in. Both rappers end up referencing the HBO series in their verses, dropping unexpected gems and making everybody seriously listen to the words they're spitting.
"Too Many Gods" is available right now in select international markets. Expect it to hit streaming at midnight, depending on where you're located.
Had a dream, I woke up a king in a peasant body
Kill my Prada, felt less embodied
Still inside, writing papers
Flying ravens with a message 'bout me
On my knees like I'm rectifying
Hand on my heart like I'm testifying
Want the beef, I go prime on it
Fuck a king, I turn God on it
