Fans Torn Over Possible Joey Badass & XXXTentacion Collaborative Project

Posted by

Polarizing artist XXXTentacion is currently on house arrest but evidently that hasn’t stopped him from moving forward with his music. On Saturday (January 20), the “Look At Me!” rapper alluded he was working on a collaborative project with Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ during one of his Instagram stories.

“xxxtentacion x joey badass,” he wrote in white text. “collaboration tape.”

Joey, who just dropped the surprise single “King To A God” on Friday (January 19), appeared to back up X’s announcement with an Instagram post of his own. The Pro Era MC’s post consisted of a screenshot from X’s Instagram story that read, “xxxtentacion x joey badass. collaboration Tape. LETSGOOOOO @xxxtentacion.”

Screen Shot 2018-01-20 at 8.31.53 PM Hip Hop fans weren’t quite in agreement on whether this was a smart move on Joey’s part. X is currently embroiled in a slew of legal trouble stemming from his 2016 domestic violence case. Last month, he was arrested on 15 felony charges, including witness tampering.

Late Friday night (January 19), X shared a snippet of new music on Instagram but it’s unclear where the song will actually wind up. In another post from last month, the 19-year-old claimed he was putting out three albums in 2018.

Countless people took to Twitter to chime in on the possible Joey-X collaboration. From shock and anger to anticipation and excitement, the reactions were all over the place.
