Last month marked three years since Joey Bada$$ shared his second album, ALL AMERIKKKAN BADASS. Since then, the Brooklyn rapper has stayed low for the most part, sharing a few features here and there with the most recent one being “B.Q.E.” with Kota The Friend and Bas. Sitting down with Complex, Joey Bada$$ delivered an update on his forthcoming third album.
Contrary to the extremely fast and quick-to-create industry we live in nowadays, Joey Bada$$ explained that he’s been taking his time with the album creation process.
“I’m talking about my life, talking about my experiences. That doesn’t always happen in six months. Sometimes not much happens in six months that’s super significant to express through art. Or sometimes you need another six months to even process what you just went through. That’s more what it’s like for me. It’s just about taking my time to produce the best body of work.”
As for that upcoming third album, Joey said that he plans to have much more fun this time around with it because “it’s a very fun time for me right now. A lot of exciting things are happening.”
So one question remains: When will we get the album? “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.”
