Joey Bada$$ wasn’t lying when he rapped, “Just got back to the block from a 6 o’clock with Jigga/ And I’m thinking ’bout signing to the Roc” on A$AP Rocky’s “1 Train.” In part three of his interview on The Combat Jack Show, the Pro Era MC recalled meeting Jay-Z, who wanted to sign him to Roc Nation Management. The deal didn’t come to fruition, but Hov did leave young Joey with some huge praise:

Yo, that “Waves” track, that is it right there. That is it. That’s what you need to run with. This is music.

Joey discusses his upcoming Summer Knights project, being co-signed by Mac Miller and who bodied “1 Train” in part two after the jump…
