Shortly after announcing the release date for ‘Summer Knights’, Joey brings us new music.

As the weather heats up, so do the rappers as Joey Bada$$ joins the group of rappers that are releasing albums and mixtapes in June, as earlier today, Joey Bada$$ announced Summer Knights would be releasing on June 12th. To get things kicked off, today we get the first single from the project, “Word Is Bond”, produced by Statik Selektah and get ready for the full album in just over two weeks. Joey’s proper debut album is to follow, cleverly titled B4.Da.$$.
