Over the last year and a half, 18-year-old Brooklyn emcee Joey Bada$$ has taken the hip-hop scene by storm. His ability to weave insightful stories into a muti-syllabic flow has left fans wanting more. If you're a Joey Bada$$ fan, be sure to download the emcee's third mixtape, Summer Knights, on Wednesday.
Although Joey Bada$$ has previously dropped hints that Summer Knights would be a solo EP, we now know the project is a full-fledged mixtape that will feature 17 tracks and Pro Era guest appearances. The title of the album was inspired by Joey Bada$$'s earlier track by the same name, and the release date comes a year after his breakthrough mixtape, 1999.
Diehard fans of the Pro Era crew will be eager to see if Joey Bada$$'s new mixtape will feature any previously unreleased Capital Steez verses. We're still waiting on an official tracklist.
Bada$$'s new mixtape is meant to be a teaser for his upcoming LP, B4.Da.Bada$$, which is scheduled for release later this summer. Fans will have to wait and see whether the emcee will live up to all the hype that currently surrounds his name.
