After finishing and redoing his upcoming album, Joey Bada$$ promises that his new project is "85% done."
Joey Bada$$ has been steadily biding his time, patiently putting in work on his upcoming follow-up to 2017's All-Amerikkkan Bada$$. And while some have expressed frustration with Joey's methodical pace, the Badmon previously broke things down during an interview with Complex in May: "It’s not fast food. It's not something that keeps coming, even though I'd like it to be like that, and my fans would like it to be like that. But I just need time. I'm talking about my life, talking about my experiences. That doesn't always happen in six months."

Though the anticipated album has yet to surface, Joey did dull some of the pain with The Light Pack EP, a three-song appetizer featuring a guest appearance from Pusha T. Now, with eyes once again turning to his next full-length endeavor, the New York rapper took a moment to provide another update on its status. "My album fire. 85% done w. See y’all soon," he declares, a promising sign. "I finished this album like 3 times but I promise this the last time.,.. hopefully."
On the topic of Badmon's last comment, Smino took a moment to relate to the struggle of restarting an album from scratch -- a pain that was swiftly ridiculed by Buddy; "Y’all wild," he writes, sliding into Bada$$' comment section. Though we don't have much information pertaining to an actual release date, we can only hope that Joey decides to end the year on a high note. Are you excited to see what he's been cooking up all this time?
