Upstart rhyme-slinger Joey Bada$$ has turned a critically-lauded mixtape, 1999, and an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon into a record deal with Cinematic Music Group/Creative Control. The rapper’s first release is a digital single containing a reworked version of “Waves” and a new track featuring Ab-Soul entitled “Enter The Void”, which is now streaming below.

Eschewing his usual retro production choices, this latest banger features a more contemporary blend of heavy bass and shimmery vocal samples, which Mr. Bada$$ responds to with some of his most poetic lines (“Could have been a cherry-pickin’ ni**a, if I ain’t make jams and bury ni**as/Used to be the sweetest ’til life handed me lemons, ni**a/Now everyday I see the sour batches/The flower of life devoured into ashes”).

The single is available now via iTunes.
