Joey Bada$$ recently claimed that Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole are the only current emcees that can match him.
The marketplace seems to disagree.
HitsDailyDouble projects Joey's 2000 album will do about 22K first week, opening 18th on the album chart.
That's a significant drop from the 51K his last album All-Amerikkkan Badass did in 2017.
Does Joey deserve more streams? Or does he have an inflated sense of his skills?
