Two-time Grammy nominated hip-hop artist Joyner Lucas dropped his new single “Broski,” and marks Joyner’s fifth release from his forthcoming album, Not Now, I’m Busy.
The song showcases Joyner’s signature storytelling abilities and provides a captivating look into the conundrum that several entertainers experience, when friends switch up on them when money, power and greed are involved.
Joyner delivers electrifying bars that showcase how entertainers’ friends can quickly transform from supportive to envious. After rapping from the perspective of an uplifting friend, Joyner uses his wordplay to paint a darker image of that same friend expressing anger and resentment: “You ain’t nothing but a phony. You a liar. You a snake. You can rap but ain’t Kendrick, you ain’t Cole, you ain’t Drake.”
“Broski” is the fifth release from Joyner’s anticipated new album, coming after previous releases such as “Cut U Off (feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again),” “What’s That?,” “Blackout (feat. Future),” and “Devil’s Work Part 2.” Joyner had previously announced that his album will be dropping later this year, marking his first album in three years.
Joyner’s last album ADHD, debuted in the Top-10 of the Billboard 200, earned RIAA gold certification, sparked a much-needed conversation about mental health and established a new template for success that independent artists could follow.
