In a new episode of BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions, Joey Bada$$ performs a stripped version of his song “Amerikkkan Idol” from his sophomore album AmeriKKKan Bada$$. The rapper is accompanied by British rapper Dave, who performed at the 2017 FADER Fort back in March. Dave plays the piano while Bada$$ raps "I'm out for dead presidents to represent me, Dead fuckin' presidents to represent me." The duo produces an amazing performance as the somber instrumental supports Bada$$’ lung-wrenching lyrics. Check out the video above.
