Joey Bada$$ released a new EP last week and for my money, it’s his strongest work in a while. Only three tracks deep, but you get a tight feature from Pusha T thrown in the mix, as well as The Light, which has also been blessed with a video. Some pretty striking imagery to be found within, thanks to the Pro Era MC’s decision to take part in a voodoo rebirth ceremony and use the accompanying footage for this video. The Light is produced by Statik Selektah.
Statik Selektah has a new album coming out next month and yesterday gave us another glimmer of what to expect from the project, thanks to the release of No. 8. The track features a blistering set of bars from Griselda’s finest, Conway and Westside Gunn, as well as Statik’s regular collaborator, Termanology. The album is released in full on 8 December, with pre-orders available now.
New track from Statik Selektah, taken from his forthcoming album, 8. The New York-based producer has enlisted the plentiful skills of mic murderers, El-P & Killer Mike, on Put Jewels On It and as usual the two MCs seem to push each other to bring their best to the beat. The album is due for release on 8 Decmber and if you pre-order now, you get Put Jewels On It right away.
A brand new Joey Bada$$ track just appeared on Soundcloud. Produced by frequent collaborator, Statik Selektah, 500 Benz is a nice sax-laced affair; ideal soundtrack for these summer evenings. You can stream it below.
Edit: there are actually THREE new tracks, check his Soundcloud for the others.

Statik Selektah is arguably one of the most prolific producers in rap, as you can see from his Soundcloud.
