#throwbackjam: Summer Knights x Joey Bada$$

Today, I ventured back a few years-and listened to a legendary album. In 2013, Joey released ‘Summer Knights,’ a brilliant example of what it is to grow up in Flatbush, NYC.

With a deep, and slightly raspy voice, Joey detailed events in his life that stand close to him-events that he loved but also ones quite painful to him, like the loss of Capital Steez (a young artist who spearheaded the Pro Era movement, but killed himself on Christmas Eve in 2012.) The release also features artists like Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers-also key members of Pro Era.

Today, Joey has evolved-but this is my favorite album from him.

Check out video for the single, “Hilary $wank.” Watch here!
