Rapper. Actor. Producer. Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott, better known as Joey Badass is a Brooklyn boy and founding member of the Pro-Era has been hailed as a prodigy after the younger generation of rappers in the game. With his classic and nostalgic approach to hip hop, Joey embodies the new-age wave of rappers, having been discovered on youtube himself. If there’s anything about Joey that’s true, the 1999 rapper is known to go against the grain, and he’s got the hip hop jewelry and style to prove it.
Joey Badass in his height has been compared to Nas, taking inspiration from..surprise surprise, Nas Tupac Shakur, Black Thought, MF DOOM, J Dilla, Andre 3000, Jay Z, and The Notorious B.I.G..
Just like Biggie, Joey Badass is never seen without his hip hop jewelry chain- rocking that classic look, the Bada$$ is often seen repping a gold cuban chain, and can often be seen with some form of gold hip hop jewelry pendant and iced out jewelry rings. Scope Joey Badass’s style and cop it for yourself with the help of Hip Hop Bling- we’ve got the iced out piece for every player out there hustling, helping them represent just like a Bada$$.
Over his career Joey Badass has worked with names across the industry- Audio Push, Hit-Boy, Action Bronson, Mike Posner, Raekwon, Black Thought, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Smoke DZA, Mac Miller, Casey Veggies, Big K.R.I.T., Funkmaster Flex, Statik Selektah, DJ Premier, Harry Fraud, Dizzy Wright, Jared Evan, and more- any of these names sound familiar?
Most recently dropping All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ in 2017 to critical acclaim, Joey Badass is on a roll- if his collabs are anything to compare, Joey will be around for some time to come, with beats bringing us back before trap, where rap truly began.
