The last 4 months have had everyone asking who is Joey Bada$$? The 17 year old Brooklyn emcee exploded onto the scene with the music video for “Survival Tatics” which featured Joey and Pro.Era teammate Capital Steez showing off their throwback boom bap sound - immediately leaving hip hop heads wanting to hear more. Since, Joey has stayed active releasing tracks, has done features for the likes of Mac Miller, Uno Hype and Bryant Dope to name a few, all in between doing interviews and photos shoots for industry tastemakers like Complex Magazine, XXL and Adidas. With his debut solo mixtape, 1999, Joey goes in over some classic J Dilla and MF Doom production as well as some tracks produced by Pro.Era’s own Chuck Strangers and Bruce LeeKick making the project sound very complete. With the lyrical finesse and on point delivery showcased on 1999, Mr. Bada$$ with help from Capital Steez, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight may have finally raised the bar on what is expected from a young emcee to make a name for themselves in hip hop. Very complete project, expect this one to be the summer anthem coast to coast.
