Joey Bada$$ – “Amethyst Rockstar” (Feat. Kirk Knight) (Prod. DOOM)
Teenage Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ by rapping over shockingly accurate takes on mid-’90s boom-bap and late-’90s underground rap, and now that he’s famous, he’s getting to collaborate with some of the titans of those two fields. He already linked up with DJ Premier on “Unorthodox,” and now he and his Pro Era compadre Kirk Knight are rapping over a beautifully broken track from DOOM on “Amethyst Rockstar,” a track from Joey’s forthcoming Summer Knights mixtape. We’ve already posted the Summer Knights tracks “Word Is Bond” and “95 Til Infinity,” and this might be the last one we get to hear before the tape drops. Download it below.
Summer Knights is due 7/1.
