Joey Bada$$ Embarking on Beast Coastal Tour
Rapper Joey Bada$$ will hit the road next month on a 29-city jaunt called the Beast Coastal Tour. The trek is broken down into two coastal legs — West and Midwest/East Coast. The Brooklyn emcee will complete the tour with five shows in Australia.
The trek kicks off in Portland, Ore., on March 22 and wraps up April 21 in his native hometown of New York. That’s followed by his Australian leg, which begins April 25 and ends May 2.
Interestingly, on March 28 Joey will be performing in San Francisco, Calif., which is close to where his rap nemesis Lil B resides. The Brooklyn rapper and the Based God engaged in a Twitter feud earlier this month, which spawned two diss records. It will be interesting to see how Joey is received in the Bay Area.
Joining the trek are fellow rappers Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers, so expect a high energy show.
Recently, Joey teamed up with DJ Premier to record the one-off single, ‘Unorthodox,’ on the Mountain Dew’s record imprint, Green Label Sound.
