New music video from Joey Bada$$ featuring “Where I Belong,” a song from his upcoming album 2000.
The Brooklyn rapper’s “Where I Belong” video finds him back in his hometown of Flatbush, where it all began for him. Joey spends the majority of the video at the skatepark he used to attend a decade ago, spitting bars in front of his mother’s old apartment and posing with a brand new automobile that seems to symbolize how far Bada$$ has come from his early days with Pro Era.
Joey, who appears in the music video on his own, raps over a rough Static Selektah production while reflecting on his journey out of the projects and into the life he believes was always meant for him.
It’s like I was never gone; I’m working hard to be the best till the end. I wore a VVS on my chest, and that made them sneaky. Over the mesmerizing boom-bap beat, the Flatbush emcee boasts, “Ain’t no tints on my two-door, I want them to see it’s us.” Cause if I paid enough, they’d better hear me comin’ / A while back, I was a teen who enjoyed “ridin’ ’bout frontin'” in her mother’s “bucke I gave this my all or nothing, and now I’m busting the bank on Snyder Avenue in building number 34.
Recently released, “Where I Belong” is the latest track from Joey’s forthcoming album, which will serve as a follow-up to his groundbreaking 1999 mixtape. Joey was catapulted into the national rap conversation after the release of 1999, which was hailed with widespread acclaim.
