Fans of ‘Temptation’ and ‘Devastated’ Brooklyn rap protégé Joey Bada$$ can’t wait until the 22-year-old rapper finally hits our shores, with shows in Auckland, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney on sale now and selling fast.

Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are pleased to announce a Melbourne headline show by the acclaimed MC/producer. Bada$$ will perform at the Forum Theatre on Friday 19 January – with tickets on sale Thursday 30 November. Following on from that headline date, Bada$$ will also take to the stage at VIC’s most acclaimed boutique festival, Sugar Mountain.

2017 saw the release of the prodigious rapper’s second studio album, ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, which hit the top five of the US Billboard album charts thanks to track such as ‘Rockabye Baby’, ‘For My People’ and ‘Land of The Free’, earning hundreds of millions of views on YouTube along the way.

In a recent chat with UK’s The Evening Standard (read here), Bada$$ discusses everything from politics to race relations, hitting right at the heart of same issues he addresses on his latest, and most lauded record:

“We got problems, we got struggles, and that’s the very macro-cosmic elements of this project. It transcends just being a black man in America and it becomes just being a human being in the world.”

Watch Joey perform for BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions with Huw Stephens here.

One of the USA’s most auspicious rappers, catch Joey Bada$$ live – don’t miss out!
