‘2000’ is Joey’s first full-length effort in five years, following 2017’s ‘All-Amerikkkan Bada$$’. It was announced by the rapper on his Instagram, alongside a short trailer and the caption: “Back on the set like I never left…”
The announcement of ‘2000’ followed the release of new single ‘THE REV3NGE’ earlier this year, which came with a cinematic music video directed by child.
In an XXL interview last month, Joey spoke about what to expect from his new album. “I’m just ready for it to come out. I know the world needs new Joey music. Shit, Joey wants to give the world new music.”
He continued: “As far as producers go, I got my boys on there: Statik Selektah, Kirk Knight. I got a Cardo joint on there. I got a Mike WiLL [Made-It] joint on there. I’m supposed to be getting in with DJ Premier this week ’cause I told him I can’t complete this album if we don’t link up.”
