Breaking Hip Hop artist Joey Ivy’s latest single “Golden Ticket” kicks off with a hauntingly phantasmic prelude which won’t fail to leave you transfixed by the archaic samples which set the perfect tone for the experimentally arrestive mix.
There may be plenty of Old School elements in Golden Ticket stylistically. But lyrically, Golden Ticket is well and truly grounded in the 21st century. If any Rap artist can put Pasadena on the map, it’s Joey Ivy. The flow and grind to their playful and witty bars are practically unparalleled. It practically begs for repeat attention by allowing you to draw more out of the powerful lyrics with each hit.
