Leave it to Joey Bada$$ and Epik High‘s Tablo to drop some knowledge through their latest collaborative track, “Hood”.

On 5th September, the 2 rappers, who are deemed as lyrical geniuses in the hip-hop scene, dropped their collaborative track that is highly anticipated by their fans. It was released after they dropped several teasers that featured their respective verses in the song.



Korea’s renowned hip-hop producer Code Kunst bodies the beat, with both Joey and Tablo connecting the song with today’s issues in society.

Despite being a Korean and American collaborative track, “Hood” is a deep track that really explores how monetary value affects human society. Both Joey and Tablo created a picture of how some people went through the darkest that society has to offer when they have money and power. Not to mention, the metaphors in “Hood” are not just any pointless metaphors thrown in to get spins.

While it’s not the best song from the 2 rappers, we found ourselves listening to it multiple times in a day since its release. The message is absolutely amazing and there’s good rhythm throughout the song.

Listen to “Hood” below:


“Hood” is available now on Apple’s iTunes and various other digital music sites in Korea.
