Joey Bada$$ New Single: Word Is Bond
If you haven’t listened to Joey Badass (styling as Badass for ease), jump on it. Despite his overtly childish name (give him a break he picked it when he was a child, shit at eighteen he pretty much still is) the kid is spits refreshing raps reminiscent of the the 90s golden years. You’ll taste notes of Nas, Guru, Mobb Deep – totally good notes.
Mr. Badass has just announced a new single called “Word Is Bond”, the first off his anticipated (by me anyways, and other hopeful* rap fans) summer-kicking-off mixtape Summer Knights. N.B. on June 12th their is a Summer Knights Mixtape release party in Brooklyn, I’ll be in attendance, will you?
* Joey Badass, alongside others like Freddie Gibbs (who also just announced a mixtape), Big K.R.I.T. and Hopsin, is someone I have personally latched onto as a key player in the hopefully-imminent real-rap revival.

This isn’t his song but his verse is worth listening too, as is my personal favorite verse on the track by Big K.R.I.T.
