He’s a 22-year-old politically-charged hitmaker, whose carefully worded, confident social critiques are re-writing the rules of hip-hop. Brooklyn rap protégé Joey Bada$$ is heading to Australia and New Zealand in January 2018.
 
The ‘Temptation’ and ‘Devastated’ rapper kicks off his tour with an exclusive date in Auckland, before landing down under for three special headline dates at Brisbane’s Eatons Hill Hotel, Perth’s Metro City and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre. While in Australia he’ll also be appearing at Melbourne’s most acclaimed boutique festival, Sugar Mountain.
 
Fresh from the release of his second studio album All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, Bada$$ has received serious acclaim for his raw, original sound. Featuring the likes of ScHoolboy Q, Styles P and J.Cole, All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ is an open letter to America: tracks such as ‘For My People’ and‘Land of The Free’ see Bada$$ magnifying the nation’s flaws in hopes of prescribing solutions to remedy the issues at hand, leaving fans and critics impressed:
  
Breakthrough single and centrepiece of 2012’s debut mixtape 1999, ‘Survival Tactics’ showcased Bada$$ as a prodigious MC with a strong vision. Starting his career as the founding member of Brooklyn hip-hop collective Pro Era, Bada$$ has maintained a unique and versatile sound, taking risks on his debut LP B4.da.$$ and in songs such as ‘Front & Centre’, ’95 Til Infinity’, ‘Ready’ and ‘My Yout (feat. Maverick Sabre)’.
