After one delay and a whole lot of anticipation, the teenage Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ has released his Summer Knights mixtape. It’s the follow-up to last year’s 1999, the tape that put Joey and his Pro Era crew on the map, and it’s got production from some masters of the boom-bap form that Joey and his crew are so uncannily good at evoking. DOOM, Alchemist, Oddisee, Statik Selektah, Lee Bannon, and others contribute beats, and various Pro Era members, as well as dancehall singer Collie Buddz, turn up on the mic. We’ve already posted the early tracks “Word Is Bond,” “95 Til Infinity,” and “Amethyst Rockstar,” and now you can stream or download the whole thing at Livemixtapes.
