Special Education


Slug of Atmosphere sits down with Special for her game show Special Education where the two battle it out over Atmosphere’s latest album ‘Fishing Blues’ including the most difficult song to make, the song he would perform for 3rd graders, what he would perform for old folks, his favorite song to perform live, and his favorite collab on the album.

Joey Bada$$ joins Special again for her game show Special Education, this time to solely discuss his latest album ‘All Amerikkkan Badass’. The two speak about the easiest song to write with Joey choosing ‘Devastated’ saying he didn’t write it, ‘I went in the booth and it just came to me’, while Special chooses ‘Why U Don’t Love Me’ which compels Joey to explain that he looks at it as his feminine-esque track, writing a letter to the country as if he’s in a relationship with it. When it comes to the hardest song on the album Joey details that his collab with J. Cole ‘Legendary’ was the most difficult because for a long time it was just his first verse and it took hearing Cole’s verse to write the hook. Special chooses the release date 4/7 as Joey’s favorite thing about the album and he agrees adding that it was destiny with 4/7 being the day that his late great mentor and best friend Capital Steez released his first mixtape ‘Amerikkkan Corruption’. When asked his favorite collab on the album Joey simply says everyone while Special hones in on the importance of Styles P especially with Joey being from NY, and Joey details that he already had the song ‘Super Predator’ written but heard an interview where Styles was talking about the super predator era so he knew he would be perfect for the song and gave him a call.

Kehlani sits down with Special to break down the hardest and most fun songs to make, as well as the song she would perform for old folks from her album ‘Sweet Sexy Savage’.
