New Mixtape: Joey Bada$$ ‘Summer Knights’

Hip-hop’s golden boy Joey Bada$$, just dropped off the follow up to his debut mixtape 1999. The boom-bap resurrector’s latest offering, Summer Knights, features 17 original tracks produced by Kirk Knight, Lee Bannon, MF Doom, Statik Selektah and others. The mild mannered approach Bada$$ exhibited on his pristine project is replaced by a more aggressive vocal display on this mixtape. Aside from his Pro Era cronies, Harlem native Smoke DZA and Collie Budz are the only other rappers included on the project. Summer Knights is the prelude to Bada$$’ first studio album B4.DA.$$, which is expected to be released later this fall. Stream Summer Knights below:
