Joey Bada$$ is one busy young rapper. In addition to being named Creative Director of Ecko Clothing recently, the Brooklyn native has announced that he and his Pro Era crew are embarking on their first headlining tour.

Dubbed the Beast Coast Tour, Joey wants to use the shows to solidify his loyal fan base. “The Beast Coast Tour is like solidifying this whole musical movement that we have,” Joey Bada$$ explained in an interview with GoodFellaMedia. “This is really the official stand on what the Beast Coast really is and how we plan on impacting the game… It’s a new beginning for hip-hop.”

Joey's crew includes CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, A La $ole and the late Capital STEEZ, among others. The collective released their 'PEEP: The aPROcalypse' mixtape last year.

Pro Era’s Beast Coast Tour will kick off in Portland on March 21 and make stops in about 25 other cities until April.
