Joey Bada$$ Announces 'Summer Knights' Due Date
While some tweeters would celebrate cracking the 200,000-followers mark with nothing more than a thankful post, New York rapper Joey Bada$$ has used the moment to formally announce his next project, Summer Knights.

Earlier this month, he tweeted that a new Pro Era group EP called Summer Knights would drop sometime next month. After passing the 200,000-follower milestone on his account earlier today (May 22), though, the Beast Coast MC revealed a solid street date of June 12.

UPDATE: The release has been pushed until July 1.

"Eye should drop a track today :D in celebration of this 200k mark... but fuck it, eye'll just make this announcement. My 'Summer Knights Ep' drops June 12th. good day," he wrote.

While the collective leaked a number of new tunes in February as part of "Pro Era Week," their last official release was last year's PEEP: The aPROcalypse.

As for Bada$$, while he recently served up new work on the XXL freshmen mix, he's expected to drop his official debut LP B4.Da.$$ this fall. He previously revealed that he was working on the LP with DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Q-Tip.
