Joey Bada$$ came through with his new 3-track EP, The Light Pack, on Friday, along with some visuals to accompany the title track. The pack marked Joey’s first solo release in three years since 2017’s ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, much to the joy of his fans.

However, some were less than impressed with his declaration on Twitter that the EP would serve to “exterminate” mumble rap, a promise that turned out to be a lyric on “The Light,” after all. Despite the pushback, Joey stuck to his guns and really delivered on the impressive new project.

With the release of The Light Pack came some visuals for the title track that reflect his journey toward finding inner light. At the start of the video, he gave some context for what viewers were about to see. “On June 16th, 2020 I chose to partake in a traditional voodoo ceremony in search of rebirth,” he shared. “My purpose with this visual is to inspire black people to realize their power and take it back, as I did. Don’t be afraid of who you are, that’s their job. We are magic.” Footage of Joey participating in this ceremony is then shown, before the song kicks in around 1-minute of the way through.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah
Mic check of the gods, nigga
Mic check of the gods
Yeah

[Chorus]
The shinin’ represents the light that’s in the darkness
The diamond, y’all niggas ain’t ready when I drop this
The timin’, remarkable and in alignment
Anything is possible, I promise, yo

[Verse 1]
I admit it, I was gone for a lil’ minute
It’s like I lost my glow, yo, my inner light was dimmin’
Now I got my mojo back, y’all don’t know how to act
I’m ’bout to blackout, I never back out
Unless we talk or bringin’ gats out
And every show is packed out
We bringin’ cats out from South Africa to Glasgow
I guess you could say I got this shit mapped out
Now world domination by determination
This is mumble rap extermination
This is Godly interpolation
This is that “Who your top five?” conversation
Type of rap that fuck a Grammy nomination
Type of rap that I’ma take ’em to my basement
Bring it back, ’cause when it come to leavin’ mics ablazin’
I’m adjacent to that nigga Satan
That ain’t with debatin’, no more time for wastin’
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
The shinin’ represents the light that’s in the darkness
The diamond, y’all niggas ain’t ready when I drop this
The timin’, remarkable and in alignment
Anything is possible, I promise

[Verse 2]
Unstoppable if it’s divinely guided
I’m like Mahatma Gandhi mixed Muhammad Ali
Trapped in a rapper’s body
Another old soul, in every lifetime you find me
My angels who surround me
Niggas was frontin’, now they all behind me
Funny story how I beat the odds so oddly
Funny how I dropped all these bombs so calmly
Funny how I never found that shit, it just found me
It just, yeah, yeah
The shinin’ (You know what I’m sayin’?)

[Interlude]
Something’s gonna happen in your life that is going to affect everybody’s life for the good (For the good), for the good

[Chorus]
The shinin’ represents the light that’s in the darkness
The diamond, y’all niggas ain’t ready when I drop this
The timin’, remarkable and in alignment, yeah
