Joey Bada$$
Rejex [mixtape]

Teenage rap phenom Joey Bada$$ is back with Rejex, his first mixtape since this summer’s buzzworthy 1999. The compilation consists of tracks that didn’t make the cut the first time around, as well as some cuts (“Little Rachel,” “Indubitable”) that the young MC wrote when he was 15 while the rest of you were taking your PSATs. Elsewhere, he raps over beats by the likes of Madlib and DOOM, a refreshing change from the Top 20 leanings of most mixtape freestyles. Bada$$ may not have his degree yet, but he’s definitely schooling a lot of rappers out there.
