It is 2013, right?
Apparently not to rapper Joey Bada$$. The Brooklyn-born MC just dropped “Word is Bond,” the first single off his upcoming Summer Knights EP, and this sh*t sounds like something you would have banged on your tape back in 1994.
The song was produced by famed DJ Statik Selektah, who gives us a quiet, piano driven beat that reminds us of Jay-Z’s “Dead Presidents.”
Joey Badass does what he usually does in moments like this — he rips it, spitting lines like:
- “Better tell that doofus deuces before he catch you whipping.
- Hit him in his Charles Dickens and strip him for his Scottie Pippens.
- Cause it’s all about the big pimping.
- Rob him for his Nixon, and then question him about his timing.”
This thang is fire, folks. Look out for Summer Knights on June 12th.
