Neoclassicism

Joey Bada$$

In art, neoclassicism refers to the 18th century's return to the aesthetic ideals of the ancient Greeks and Romans. But since hip-hop is only around 40, eighteen-year-old Joey Bada$$'s revival of an early '90s aesthetic prevalent in hip-hop's golden age, is a similar phenomenon. Joey employs traditional boom-bap beats in the style of Wu-Tang and A Tribe Called Quest, two of the era's preeminent groups.
