Joey Bada$$ & BJ The Chicago Kid Perform "Like Me" w/ The Roots Live On The Tonight Show
Joey Bada$$ made his Tonight Show debut one to remember and cherish, as he, BJ The Chicago Kid and The Roots blazed through the jazzy cool-out of “Like Me” live for the late-night-audience. And it was something magical, channelling the live boom-bap steez of what I would imagine the Illafifth’s Philly corner shows might have felt like (without the scratches from the one and only Statik Selektah, of course.) Young Badmon proved in pro form that Pro Era is here and to stay, keeping cool and calm as he and the Chicago Kid gave the performance of their lives with the illest backing band in the game.
“Like Me”and the slew of distilled back-packer’s delight type o’ cuts we’ve been gifted over the past few months will all appear on Joey’s imminently dropping B4.DA.$$ LP, which features production from Stat, NYC bass-sage Brady Watt and more. The record drops next Tuesday January 20th, so be sure to get your preorder in on iTunes today. Watch Joey Bada$$, BJ The Chicago Kid, Statik Selektah and the mighty Roots crew take it all the way back with their performance of Joey’s “Like Me” on The Tonight Show below.
