JOEY BADA$$ – SUMMER KNIGHTS

Pro Era are really setting the standard for Hip Hop’s new school, and the long-awaited album from golden boy Joey Bada$$ is no exception.  This is a fantastic collection of murky, yet classic-sounding beats over which Bada$$ and the rest of the Pro Era crew spit carefully crafted, entertaining, and thought-provoking rhymes.  Although ‘Summer Knights’ is undoubtedly brilliant, you can’t shake the feeling that a shorter collection might have lead to a more polished record.  At 17 tracks we certainly get our fill, but possibly at the expense of the concision that comes from a shorter EP.  Nonetheless, this is up there with Yeezus and WMWTSO as one of THE Hip Hop releases of 2013, stream below via Spotify.
