Joey Bada$$ is sitting on some gems. The Pro Era rapper recently put out an unreleased record with Kirk Knight titled "Gazzliona."

He warned fans of things to come on Twitter. "Me & @KirkKnight dropping a joint tonight. Just cuz....," he typed. It looks like Joey will be more active in the new year as he followed that tweet up with, "Old to us but will be new to y’all. Expect more spontaneity in 2018."

"Beat is tooooo blooodclaaat smooth," one SoundCloud user noted of the laid-back, Kirk Knight-produced track that utilizes an acoustic loop. According to the stream, the song was made back in 2013. Joey's voice is gruff as he spits heat. "Guess who's back again/I'm known to make a fucker lose oxygen/I get sparked off intoxic drops of gin/Wait, stop, drop it in, roll over/Is what I told her, don’t play games, I can't console her/Hand it over to the Pro like a controller/We overload her 'til she froze up, it was over/The Pros expose her, her ex propose her," he snaps.

After a beat change, Kirk takes over. "She said nothin' lasts forever, keep comin' back hon/Give me hot propulsion through 150 suns," he rhymes. "The image in my mind brings the masterpieces/Make hot feces, I like my plate hot, feast."

Joey made headlines over the weekend for revealing he co-wrote Post Malone's platinum-selling single, "Rockstar."
