Joey Badass - Thugz Cry

Joey Bada$$ tackles violence and racism in America with his latest effort, "Thugz Cry." The song, which is available for streaming below is his take on Prince's 1984 hit When Doves Cry, from the classic album, "Purple Rain."


Joey revealed his decision to cover the song was largely influenced by his mother.

"To this day my mum is the biggest Prince fan, she always played Prince around the house, put me on to Prince at such an early age. Me and her we used to always sing ‘When Doves Cry’ together, so I made my own version. It’s called ‘When Thugs Cry’.”

He originally performed the song in Australia for Triple J's Like A Version series, but has now decided to make available the studio version. 

Listen to 'Thugz Cry' below.
