Big news for fans of Joey BADA$$. This week, the Brooklyn talent took to social media to announce the forthcoming release of his new album 2000, which — judging from the title — will act as the sequel to BADA$$‘ classic mixtape 1999. Added to the news is a trailer that further confirms the connection with shots of kids skateboarding in a park before the camera focuses on BADA$$ — all while a Statik Selektah-produced track begins playing in the background.

Released back in 2012, 1999 was BADA$$‘ debut mixtape that contained 15 songs and appearances from members of the rapper‘s Pro Era collective, along with additional contributions from MF DOOM, Knxwledge, J Dilla, Lord Finesse, and more. Along with its lead single “Waves,” 1999 solidified BADA$$‘ position as one of the next artists to lead the hip hop movement, which continued with the albums B4.DA.$$ and All-Amerikkkan Badass in 2015 and 2017, respectively. He’s also since stepping into the acting game, delivering top tier performances in the series “Mr. Robot” and the Oscar-winning short film Two Distant Strangers.

Check out the official trailer for 2000 below, which officially arrives June 17. In related news, Joey BADA$$ will also be going on tour in support of the album — you can take a look at the dates for that as well.
