Go ahead ask em "Who is Joey Bad?"
Watch em gasp, asthma, damn it’s so sad
He paused the chatter cause he know he rather back up
Than to admit the kid is hotter than magma

from Joey BADA$$ – Waves Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Simply speaking Joey’s name in a conversation will cause some people to lose their breath. They would rather stop talking and leave the convo than admit that he’s hot right now. .

Also, just so you know, when Joey mentions he’s hotter than magma, we’re talking about this:

How hot is magma? Just about 1300 °F to 2400 °F.
