Joey Bada$$ has been playing around with the format for his upcoming project, Summer Knights, but if the first single is any indication, we can expect more of the ’90s-inspired rhyme-slinging that fueled his breakout mixtape, 1999. “Word is Bond” (he’s really committed to the throwback thing), produced by Statik Selektah, is built on elegant, Reasonable Doubt-style piano, with Bada$$ kicking wise-beyond-his-years street knowledge through bursts of internal rhymes and clever wordplay.

Mixtape, “street album,” or other, Summer Knights is set to drop on June 12. Bada$$ will follow-up the project with his debut album B4DA$$.
