Joey Bada$$ has recruited guests like J. Cole, Schoolboy Q and Styles P for his upcoming LP All-Amerikkkan Bada$$.
"This is the most important hip-hop album in a long time. Blood sweat & tears into this," Bada$$ promised of his new LP on Twitter. "First body of work I made that isn't about me... This is about us. For the world. Universal sound. Legends they never die."
Schoolboy Q pops up on "Rockabye" while J. Cole appears on "Legendary." Other guests include the Lox's Styles P, reggae artist Chronixx, Flatbush Zombies' Meechy Darko and Bada$$' Pro Era associates Kirk Knight and Nyck Caution.
Even though the rapper's 2015 LP B4.DA.$$ debuted at Number Two on the Billboard 200 – and he scored a high-profile role on Mr. Robot – Bada$$ still considered himself an independent artist in a July 2016 interview, even as "Devastated" ascended the singles chart.
"It's funny, because I don't consider myself a mainstream rapper, either. They need to make a new term for me. I'm like a major-indie. Yeah, that's what I am. I'm not underground, I'm not major label, I'm just major-indie," Bada$$ said, including Chance the Rapper in that category. "Dude, these major-indies are here, man. That's what it is. We're 'mindies.'"
