Joey Bada$$ is making his rounds again, and with a new album on the way you can expect to hear more from the Pro Era emcee. However, the Brooklyn rapper steps away from the mic and steps in front of the camera for this latest creative endeavor. Teaming up with writer and director Rik Cordero, Complex, and Green Label, Joey stars in this short film that takes a look at his career.
Set in the year 2062, we find Joey— or better yet Joseph, considering we find the assumedly retired emcee in suit and tie in a high-rise office— reminiscing about his career, eventually making his way back to 2012. Once his destination is reached, we get a glimpse of the life before the tours, ladies, endless shrubbery, everything before “da $$” (nice album plug!).
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the short film in our video player up top, which includes some special gems from Statik Selektah on the score, so expect nothing other than dopeness.
