It seems right that new school meets the old school in the form of this Joey Bada$$ and DJ Premier track, which is free to download.
Representing two different timelines in hip-hop the Gang Starr veteran cooks up a nice track for the Pro Era youngster to drop bars over. It's a classic Premo beat that's accompanied with a tantalising sample laced with his signature scratches and Joey Bada$$ does the track justice with his cocky bars and deep rooted NY flow.
The collaboration is part of Mountain Dew's 'Green Label Sound' record label which is designed to be a platform for independent artists and where listeners can download music for free.
Checkout this mini-video documentary with Joey Bada$$ doing what he does best at DJ Premier's legendary HeadQCourterz Studio.
