On April 7, Joey Bada$$ will release his highly-anticipated new album ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, a project we've been writing about for months following the success of "Devastated" and the blunt force impact of "Land of the Free."

Today, we're writing about the impending 12-track album because the Pro Era emcee has unleashed the full tracklist, which boasts collaborations with J. Cole, Meechy Darko of Flatbush Zombies, ScHoolboy Q, Styles P and fellow Pro Era members Kirk Knight and Nyck Caution.

Obviously, the two biggest names on the album are Cole and ScHoolBoy, neither of whom have previously collaborated with Joey on a record (though Q and Joey have toured together).

How EKKSTACY Beat Writer’s Block to Make His Best Album

Pop anti-hero EKKSTACY finds his aggressive voice on his new album, 'misery.' He breaks down his journey through writer's block for Audiomack World.

Given that Cole had to ask Bada$$ for permission to use the Freddie Joachim-produced beat from "Waves" for his pre-4 Your Eyez Only promo single "False Prophets," it's certainly possible Joey agreed because Cole also offered to throw a 16 his way for the album. At least, that was the first thought that popped into my brain upon reviewing the track list.

In January, DJBooth writer Cassidy Kakin wrote about Joey's decision to use Kendrick Lamar's blueprint to enter "top 5" conversations, but not even he saw a Cole connection coming.
