CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

Joey Bada$$, however, is doing his best to further the period's legacy of boom-bap production as an authenticator and advanced-level lyricism as a meal ticket.

Beats Per Minute

By so loyally remaining within his influences’ style, Bada$$ both manages to both capture a surprising amount of that energy and lose a bit of substance.

1999 is essentially an impressive reincarnation of Golden Age east coast hip-hop, and is made even more impressive by the fact that Joey was 16-17 years old when this was recorded. At such a young age, Joey showed just a glimpse of his artistic potential, and his absolutely top-notch lyricism undoubtedly propelled himself to the top-tier of hip-hop lyricists.

Favorite songs: "Waves," "Survival Tactics," "Killuminati"
Least favorite songs: "Pennyroyal"
