Joey Bada$$ Soaks Up St. Lucia in ‘My Yout’ Video
As well as repping BK to the fullest, Joey Bada$$ is a second generation immigrant from the Caribbean — a background that definitely plays into his music, particularly on the reggae-spiced ‘My Yout,’ which recently received a remix from London singer Maverick Sabre.
It seems fitting that, in the track’s official video, the Pro Era frontman returns to his family’s native St. Lucia. Despite being a world away from his concrete jungle (it’s more like an actual jungle), young Joey takes in the scenery, meets the locals and generally soaks up the vibe of the island, without having to force any clichéd weed references.
‘My Yout (Remix)’ serves as a bonus track on Joey’s new ‘Summer Knights’ EP alongside ‘My Jeep,’ which features Meechy Darko of Flatbush Zombies, Issa Gold of the Underachievers and fellow Pro Era member Chuck Strangers. The project is available now on iTunes.
