Joey Bada$$, a member of the burgeoning New York City-based rap crew Pro Era, is set to release Summer Knights EP, a 7-song digital release on October 29 via Cinematic Music Group/Pro Era Records/RED Distribution. Summer Knights EP will include two new tracks, "My Jeep" and a new version of Joey Bada$$' current single "My Yout" featuring a collaboration with UK's Maverick Sabre. The additional songs on the set were handpicked by Joey Bada$$ himself, an ode to his favorite songs from his Summer Knights mixtape released in June 2013.
Joey Bada$$ has been drumming up serious excitement and discussions about his place in New York rap lore, drawing regular comparisons to greats like Nas, Biggie, and Big L. With his Pro Era crew, comprised of buzzing CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, Dessy Hinds, NYCK Caution and producer Chuck Strangers, Joey is leading one of the most compelling cultural movements to come out of NYC today. Joey Bada$$ will headline the 2013 Smokers Club Tour alongside TDE's Ab-Soul, kicking off October 17 at Lupo's in Providence with support from Pro Era, The Underachievers, Chevy Woods, Black Dave and more.
