Actual Cover With Joey Bada$$ Leaning Out Of Car Is Concealed By Special Outer American Flag Sleeve
Joey Bada$$ has been teasing the title of his sophomore album for a few months now, having previously only given fans an acronym: AABA. The Brooklyn-born rapper took to Twitter to reveal the full title, ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$.
A short, 30-second teaser for the album shows Joey walking through a dusty desert dragging a baseball bat, as images of a burning cross and children playing in a field flash across the screen. As the faint final strands of the Star Spangled Banner echo through the desert, Joey winds up and uses the bat to smash a glass plate painted with the American flag, before the album title and release date are revealed.
The title recalls both Ice Cube's classic 1990 solo debut AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted and the debut mixtape from Joey's friend, close collaborator and Pro Era co-founder Capital Steez, who released the project AmeriKKKan Korruption in 2012 before his untimely death the night before Christmas Eve that year.
AABA will be Joey's second official album, following the release of his debut LP B4.Da.$$. He's been gearing up for the release of the album with the singles Land of the Free, an excellent politically- and socially-charged track that takes aim at Donald Trump (among others), and the 2016 cut Devastated, which gave Joey his first gold plaque.
