Joey Bada$$ Premieres “Curry Chicken” In Time For Christmas Dinner

A sweet ode to the New York rapper’s mom and her home cooking.

Joey Bada$$ has dropped a new B4.DA.$$ track as a holiday gift for all his fans—more specifically, his number one fan: his mother. Featuring dusty horns and a whole lot of heart, "Curry Chicken" is a sweet, sentimental ode to Joey's mother and her home cooking. I got your back, ain't got to worry, he raps. Only thing I ask for is some curry.

The song came with a note that reads:

"Curry Chicken" was one of my favorite meals to eat growing up. I give thanks for being able to make it home just in time for the holidays. Ain't nothing like sharing these wonderful moments with the family and having the best dinner. This is a gift from me to you this christmas wrapped in a bada$ flow. Happy holidays! #B4DAMONEY is almost here!!! (1.20.15) #ForeverJr #LongLiveSTEELO. P.S. You got to give to get and then you give back!"
