I'm so glad that my homies put me on to this project. The 17 year old MC from Brooklyn has dropped a classic..
Joey Bada$$'s "1999" mixtape is aptly named so, as his sound is very reminiscent of those classic NY albums that came out during the "Golden Age," (ala Nas' Illmatic). Nothing but that gritty NY wordplay with no gimmicks, something thats refreshing in today's recent upsurge of "weirdo rap". And the fact that he's been able to become so skilled at such a young age, it will be exciting to see what he will be capable of in the future.

Peep the project yourself at datpiff, where it's also available for download.
