Joey BadA$$’ dense, allusive lyricism may require the occasional RapGenius visit to untangle, but he’s never simply playing with words. On the first single off his next street release, the Brooklyn buzzmaker emphasizes his commitment to keeping it one-hundred, assuring listeners that his Word Is Bond. Boston heavyweight Statik Selektah mans the boards on this ‘90s-informed cut, backing the Pro.Era ringleader’s intricate, resolutely real bars with a dusty breakbeat and wistful piano loop. Summer Knights is slated for free digital release on Wednesday, June 12. In the meantime, watch our front page for more fresh song releases off the much-anticipated set.
