Fans have been patiently waiting for Joey Bada$$ to release his sophomore album AABA ever since he dropped his debut LP in early 2015.
A pre-order for ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$ has popped up on iTunes in New Zealand, and it shows a release date of April 7. A pre-order should pop up in the U.S. iTunes store tonight, and we’ll have a link for you when it does.
The album looks to be 12-tracks long and includes two songs he’s already released, “Land of the Free” and “Devastated.”
In addition, Joey shared a trailer for the album, featuring someone smashing a piece of glass that features the American flag. Watch that below.
Some weeks back, Joey got into some hot water for saying he’s a better rapper than 2Pac. “I already know I’m a better rapper than 2Pac is. That’s just facts. One on one battle, I’ll flame ‘Pac,” said Joey. Once the internet ran with his comments, he took to Twitter to clarify what he was saying: “When I said I was better than PAC (my favorite rapper of all time) I was refering to rap skill. Bar for bar. Not accolades or influence. And I back myself 1000 times to that fact… media like twisting up the words but that’s I meant when I said it for all you butt hurt bozos.
Joey released the official album art for his upcoming album All AmeriKKKan Bada$$. The cover features the rapper leaning out of a car with his middle fingers up, a revamped version of the American flag waving behind him. The Brooklyn rapper clarified that this image will be under the American flag sleeve on physical copies of the album.
Seeing human thought transformed into physical manifestation is something that will never cease to blow my mind. Here is my second album in my hand… correction* here is the last 2 years of my most critical thinking in physical form… go get that April 7th.
