Joey Bada$$ has shown his determination and drive in the past year, not only delivering one of the finest mixtapes of 2012, but also spearheading a superb collaboration tape with his Brooklyn-based crew Pro Era. Both releases stood out as gems and received wide critical acclaim.

It would be safe to hazard a guess that Joey will deliver more tapes in 2013, or maybe even an official debut, but for now it is clear that he wants to continue working with as many different producers as possible. Step in DJ Premier, one of the most talented and respected hip-hop producers of all time. He's worked with Jay-Z, Kanye, The Game, Mos Def, Nas, Snoop Dogg and pretty much any other big name you can think of, so it was no surprise that Joey agreed to work with him on a one-off track for Green Label Sound, entitled 'Unorthodox'.

DJ Premier has proven that he wishes to lay down beats for young, up-and-coming MC's and so the track, which drops January 14th, promises to be another slice of something special from the two artists.
