A few months ago I reported on a studio session Joey Badass had with Statik Selektah and Diddy. There was a buzz if Diddy will take him in like French Montana but we will have to wait and see. A few hours ago Badass released a visual for “500 Benz” on WSHH that was probably created in that session. I’m certainly impressed.
I have always wondered what kind of lifestyle he may live. This song hints at a bi-coastal lifestyle with the player moves and trendy outfits. It makes sense to why Badass popped up in LA with a legendary freestyle over the “Mask Off” beat on LA Leakers radio. As cocky as it may seem he lets you know why:
“Hard to be humble, when you ridin’ with your top down.
Picture me rollin’ up in my SL500 Benz.
Mami sip on the potion while her hair blowin’ in the wind”
“I’m just young and livin’, pullin’ many women
If you was in my shoes, I bet you couldn’t say you wouldn’t”
I can’t blame him. The vibe in this video brings those thoughts to life. At a young age, legally earning your own bi-coastal lifestyle, a SL500 Benz, and “rare Gucci jacket With the Cartier glasses, just to match it”, is a legit reason to be cocky. Hard work breeds rewards. Secure The Bag Salute!
