With a rapidly expanding Internet buzz and heavy critical acclaim, Flatbush Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$ has just whet the fans' appetite even more, as he announced the title of his highly anticipated debut album.

"My new project 'B4.DA.$$.' is coming this Fall," the 18-year-old tweeted on Saturday, also announcing that he will release friend and fellow Pro Era member Capital STEEZ's posthumous mixtape this summer.

Expectations are high for Bada$$, whose debut mixtape, 1999, was rated by HipHopDX as the best mixtape of 2012, and even found its way to Complex's list of Best Albums at #38.

B4.DA.$$' first single, the DJ Premier-produced "Unorthodox," was released back in January. The album, which Joey says will also feature Pete Rock and Q-Tip, does not yet have a label to call home.

Joey is currently on the cover of XXL Magazine as part of the hip hop publication's famed freshman class.
