Joey Bada$$ dropped his solid sophomore effort, All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, earlier this year, further cementing the young rapper’s reputation as one of hip-hop’s most promising young talents. Now, he’s doubling down on his momentum with a trio of brand new tracks.
In a since-deleted tweet from yesterday, Bada$$ said he’d be sharing new music today “for no reason… just cuz I love ya and it’s summertime.” How nice of him — and you thought summer only brought high temperatures and beach days.
The three bright, upbeat tracks are entitled “500 Benz”, “Too Lit”, and “Love is Only a Feeling”. All are produced by Bada$$’s longtime collaborator, Statik Selektah, and you can listen to them below.
The songs coincide with the third annual STEEZ Day Festival, an event put on by Pro Era (of which Bada$$ is a member) to both honor late rapper Capital Steez and raise money for his family. The festival will unfold this Friday, July 7th, at the Playstation Theater in New York. Pro Era will be joined by A$AP Mob, XXXTENTACION, Ab-Soul, Saba, and more.
The following day, Bada$$ will hit the road with Logic for the Everybody’s Tour. See his full tour itinerary below.
