Joey Bada$$ will release his latest mixtape "Summer Knights" on June 12. Yesterday (May 28), the rapper debuted the Statik Selektah-produced, "Word is Bond." The song is a crisp, moody continuation of the rapper's nostalgic revival of '90s NYC hip-hop. It features a fluid piano riff and a reference to R. Kelly’s "Trapped in the Closet" saga.

Joey Bada$$ will release his debut album, "B4DA$$," shortly after "Summer Knights."

The 18-year old will embark on the Under the Influence tour alongside Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Trinidad James, B.o.B and more this summer.
