(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn emcee Joey Bada$$ has been making waves on the Hip Hop scene ever since he dropped his 1999 mixtape in 2012. In January, the Pro Era frontman furthered leaving his mark on the culture with his debut studio album B4.DA.$$.
The project has been one of the best received Hip Hop LPs of the year so far with critics rewarding Joey’s efforts with favorable reviews. The 20-year-old East Flatbush-born, Bed Stuy-raised artist sees himself as an important young figure in the world of Hip Hop.
“I say I’m the new face of Hip Hop in the whole,” said Joey during his “InFocus” segment with SKEE TV. “My message went deeper than New York. I started getting known and gaining credibility outside of New York first. It was like outside then it came in.”
