In a new interview with MTV, the de facto Pro Era leader gave just a few hints about what we can expect from the full-length project. He says that previous collaborators Statik Selektah and DJ Premier have beats on the album, as well as HS87's Hit-Boy, which is pretty exciting news, considering Bada$$' love of boom-bap and the lack of boom-bap beats in Hit-Boy's arsenal.
