Ever since hearing a 20 year-old Nas spit infinite wisdom on the undisputed classic “Illmatic,” Joey Bada$$ – a bright kid from Flatbush – has been on a mission to put his own mark on the world. Coming off the heels of the much-accredited Brooklyn processional, Survival Tactics, Joey takes his vision to the next step with the release of his debut mixtape. “1999″ displays raw talent and insight beyond the years of a 17 year-old High School student, as he gracefully captures the vibe of 90′s Hip-Hop as if he lived it. Rapping over beats by the likes of J Dilla, Statik Selektah, and MF DOOM, Joey’s voice reigns ever confident, while his team, Progressive Era, is just as strong. Needless to say, Joey Bada$$ has a bright future ahead of him.
