Mountain Dew’s Green Label Sound imprint announced this week the signing of rising Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$, who will released his first official single this autumn.
Since teaming up with Cinematic Music Group and Creative Control for the release of debut mixtape 1999 with the Progressive Era, Joey has received critical praise from recognized publications such as Pitchfork, The FADER and Stereogum, amongst many others. Now, he hopes Green Label Sound take him even further.
“I’m really excited to be working with Green Label Sound on this track. It’s gonna be dope and I get to work with someone I consider an icon,” Joey said.
Further details on the upcoming single were unknown at press time.
Additionally, Joey Bada$$ joins a handful of other artists in the Green Label Sound family, who will perform at this year’s annual CMJ Music Marathon in New York City this month.
