Joey Bada$$

Brooklyn rhyme prodigy Joey Bada$$ quickly became an in-the-know favorite over the past year with his “Survival Tactics” video and followed that up with four acclaimed mixtapes (two solo and two with his crew Pro Era), a razor-sharp 16 bars in The Cypher at the BET Hip Hop Awards, and a scene-stealing verse on “1Train,” the all-star posse cut from A$AP Rocky’s forthcoming debut. At the tender age of 17, he’s only going up from here.
