For nearly 2 years now 90’s era music has been making a comeback. While up to this point it has mostly been rock influenced with new bands like Yuck. The 90’s are now also starting to make an impact in hip-hop with rappers like this.
Joey Bada$$ is a 17 year old rapper from Brooklyn, New York, USA and a member of The Progressive Era, a hip-hop collective that focuses on reviving the sounds and styles of “golden age” New York hip-hop.
Joey released his debut mixtape 1999 on June 12, 2012. Featuring production from other Pro Era members, as well as some J Dilla and MF DOOM beats, the tape was released to general critical acclaim.
He was featured in the song and music video for Mac Miller‘s “America”, and is currently on tour as opening support for Juicy J and Chevy Woods. He has already been featured on MTV, Complex, XXL, VICE, and in The New York Times, even opening up for Mac Miller.
