Joey Bada$$: New Kid on the Block

by on October 14, 2012

Don’t sleep on Joey Bada$$, not only does he possess the lyrical talent to really make “Waves” in the industry for a minute, but he also adds a lil of what he likes to call “Swank” to his game! iLikeSwag caught up with the Brooklyn Boy, himself along with his slyish crew this week after he ripped the stage at the Brooklyn College Festival held at BAM.

The crowd anticipated the arrival of Joey Bada$$ and he did not dissapoint any when he rocked the mic. During his set Joey was welcomed home and while performing had everyone moving.  Things are going great for the 18 year old, he was recently featured in the cypher with other  new coming notable hip hop superstars, and was nominated for Best Mixtape at the BET Hip Hop Awards!

 This newcomer seems to be no stranger to the fashion game. His style brings out something fresh to the rap game that makes him standout. Wednesday evening we caught him and A La $ole before they hit the studio.

Joey and his Pro-Era crew are definitely some trendsetters. They mix modern urban wear with a little twist of old school flavor. Joey wore a Mishka Eyeball Bucket and accessories with a Color Blocked Nautica Jacket while A La $ole  wore a Zoo York Varsity Jacket, Tan Hermes Belt, and a Supreme Cap.

I love how a kid so young raps something of substance and has no problem with getting the crowd moving. His musical style reminds me of the 90’s groups Black Moon and the Boot Camp Clik. We hope to see and hear more from Joey and Pro-Era. You can find more things related to the badass himself on ThisGoesIn, his tumblr: badassjoey.tumblr.com and instagram: joeybadass_ .
