Joey Bada$$ is certainly a rapper with a lot of buzz. He’s been touring, rapping, and promoting, and he hasn’t even released his debut album yet (called B4.DA.$$, it’s due out before the end of the year). To add to the buzz, Pro Era rapper just revealed North American tour dates to support his highly anticipated project. Spanning 26 dates, Joey Bada$$ will kick off things September 26 in New Haven, CT, before heading to Boston, MA; Toronto, ON; Chicago, IL; Salt Lake City, UT; Portland, OR; Vancouver, BC; Houston, TX; Atlanta, GA; Carrboro, NC; Washington, DC; and Philadelphia, PA, before finishing up in his hometown of New York City. Presale tickets are available now—visit Joey’s website for all the details.

Born and raised in the Flatbush section of Kings County, New York (that’s Brooklyn, for those of you not from the Tri-State), Joey Bada$$ originally attended Edward R. Murrow High School in New York to study acting. He transitioned towards rap during his freshman year, rapping under the name “JayOhVee”. Pro Era, Joey’s rap collective, was created with fellow classmates Capital STEEZ, CJ Fly, and Powers Pleasant.
