ABOUT JOEY BADA$$
Joey Bada$$ is an 18-year old artist from Brooklyn, NY with a unique vision and perspective that seems to be going extinct in the modern musical landscape. A member of the burgeoning hip hop collective Pro Era, Joey and his fellow crew of teenage visionaries are leading one of the most compelling cultural movements to come out of NYC today.
Blessed with the Gift of Gab for as long as he's been able to speak, Joey was discovered by music mogul Jonny Shipes on the web at the age of 15 freestyling in a video that left him in awe at his mature talent and natural shine. The young MC inked an innovative deal with Cinematic Music Group in 2012 and hit the world by storm with the video for his song "Survival Tactics" off his first project 1999. Within weeks, the initial hype surrounding the video amongst his circle of high school friends and neighborhood spread throughout NYC and beyond to the four corners of the planet.
