Connecticut hip-hop artist Joey Batts is know for his emcee skills, his sticker, which bears his face and proclaims him to be your best friend, and his ridiculously insane "selfie" skills. If you've ever been to a Joey Batts show, or just hung out with him in general, there's a 99% chance he took a picture with you, and he made a crazy face while doing so.
Taking inspiration from all of these things, Joey Batts wrote "#Bestie," an ode to capturing life's enjoyable moments alongside your favorite people. The song has a reggae vibe, and with its happy-go-lucky lyrics, all signs point to "#Bestie" being a perfect soundtrack to the spring and summer.
"#Bestie" is off of Joey Batts & Them's 2015 album, Fandalize, which can be picked up on bandcamp.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
