Joey Bada$$ surprised fans last night (July 1st) by releasing his new mixtape 'Summer Knights'.
Part of the so-called Beast Coast movement, Joey Bada$$ has transformed himself into one of the hottest properties in Stateside rap. With his effortless flow, cocky charisma and penchant for nabbing Golden Age beats, the MC matches concentrated hype with a distilled sense of potential.
New mixtape 'Summer Knights' hit the web last night, and almost immediately began trending on Twitter. The listing contains 17 tracks, and includes some exclusive beats from DOOM, the Alchemist, Oddisee and more. Alongside this, there's a bonus track dedicated to sadly deceased Pro Era crew member Capital Steez.
On first listen, it's a substantial document - a red hot free-stylist, Joey Bada$$ is rapidly evolving into one of America's most in-demand MCs.
