Joey Bada$$ drops a fresh EP with a guest appearance from Pusha T.
As the clock struck midnight on Friday, Joey Bada$$ gifted his fans a three-track EP titled The Light Pack. The project has just one feature–Pusha T on “No Explanation.” Joey announced the project with lyrics from the project’s intro, “The Light.”
“This is mumble rap extermination,” he wrote. “This is godly interpolation.” According to hints left on his social media page, the three tracks symbolize the mind, body, and soul.
Joey recently spoke with Complex about his upcoming LP. The project will serve as his debut album at Columbia Records. “We’re trying to come soon,” he said. “It’s almost ready. On Instagram, my fans were pressing me and I told them, ‘Listen, it’s not going to be a longer wait than six months.’ That’s the best I can say. We’re really right there.”
The Brooklyn MC has explored other ventures in recent years. In 2016, he modeled for Calvin Klein. That same year, he joined the cast of USA’s Mr. Robot. The following year, he’d release his last album, All-Amerikkkan Badass.
Back in February, Joey Bada$$ shared a tribute to Pop Smoke on Instagram. “A lil something I wrote in light of all the fucked up shit going on,” he wrote. “I need hip hop to have a hug.”
Additionally, he’s fresh off the first season of Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga. Joey is playing the role of Inspectah Deck. This past May, Joey donated $25,000 to support homeless students in New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic.
