Spending the past three years moving from YouTube freestyles to widespread acclaim seems like a smart career path for the hardworking, charismatic Brooklyn rapper whose debut album, B4.Da.$$, is due out later this year. Here are some other things we think you should know about Joey Bada$$…
- Born January 20, 1995 makes him 18 (and just a year shy of Ontario’s legal drinking age.)
- Went to the same high school as Lil Mama, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Beastie Boy Adam Yauch.
- The first album he bought was OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. No one tell Big Boi though – Joey says he prefers The Love Below.
