Joey Bada$$'s Debut Mixtape '1999' Will Be Added to Streaming Services

"I’ve heard the prayers."

Joey Bada$$' debut mixtape, 1999, will soon be available for on-demand streaming on Apple Music, Spotify and TIDAL, according to the artist.

"I’ve heard the prayers," the Pro Era leader tweeted.

Released in 2012, 1999 is currently available for stream on the Pro Era SoundCloud page, where it has accumulated 16.1 million streams over the past three years. The 15-track project was never made available for digital purchase on iTunes.

Though sample clearance might preclude many of Joey's peers from making previously-released, free mixtapes available for on-demand streaming across the big three platforms, the prospect of having one location to listen to both an artist's albums and their pre-on-demand streaming rush mixtapes is quite exciting.

In related news, Bada$$ announced in December that Capital STEEZ’s posthumous debut, King Capital, has been delayed as a result of sample clearance issues.
