Summer Knights

Joey Bada$$

Summer Knights

A fast-rising Brooklyn emcee, Joey Badass is a classic modern-era success story. As a complete unknown he put a homemade freestyle video on YouTube; it was picked up by World Star Hip Hop and soon earned him a label and management deal. Along with his Pro Era crew, he released The Seccs Tape, but it was his first solo mixtape—1999, released in the summer of 2012—that put him on the fast track. Since then it's been all good: tours, cameos, big-name co-signs, and buzz galore. Summer Knights is just his second mixtape, and each track shows his lyrical prowess. He displays a potent mix of humor, storytelling, bravado, and autobiographical reflections, matched perfectly with unique yet funky production. Don't miss the hard-hitting "My Jeep" featuring Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers, "Sit n' Prey" with Dessy and T'nah Apex, and the reggae-flavored "My Yout." Overall it's a great release to whet your appetite for his official debut, B4 Da $$, coming soon.
