Brooklyn upstart Joey Bada$$' time is now. The gifted young rapper has built a healthy buzz based off just a few songs leaks and videos, all of which have led to the release of 1999. It's a cohesive display of Joey's love for the throwback, pure NYC hip-hop sound, something that also comes through whenever he spits a verse. Look out for features from members of his Pro Era crew, particularly Capitol Steez, who kills it on "Survival Tactics." You can stream/download 1999 below.
