One of the most-promising rising New York emcees is Joey Bada$$, as he has ushered in a new era of boom bap. As one of hip hop’s new leaders, there is more to Joey Bada$$ than what meets the eye. In addition to being one of the biggest new rappers in the game, there is also a business sense to Joey Bada$$, as he works with Ecko.
Yesterday, Joey Bada$$ released his Summer Knights mixtape with Pro Era. With the project out, Joey Bada$$ is doing as much promotion for the project as possible. This promotion comes in the form of his interviews and, of course, the song releases off the mixtape.
The Village Voice talked to Joey Bada$$ about Summer Knights. With the new mixtape out, there are a lot of people who have downloaded it. Joey Bada$$ also spoke on his relationship (or lack thereof) with Jay-Z, as he infamously turned down a deal with Roc Nation, saying he would sign with a major for $3 million.
