Joey Bada$$ discusses Pro.Era movement, musical influences + more [Video]

Fresh off the arrival of Joey Bada$$‘s massively-hyped debut project 1999, Ambrosia For Heads present their interview with the Brooklyn kid as he “chops it up” and introduces himself to the masses. In the clip below, you can learn more about Joey’s Pro.Era (Progressive Era) crew and their ethos, the meaning behind his name (it’s a “big contradiction” he says), producers he’d most like to collaborate with (how many 17-year-olds would namedrop Madlib, MF DOOM and Lord Finesse?!) and much more.

1999 is a must-have, so add the mixtape to your collection here. Also, be sure to check out SoulCulture‘s very own Get Familiar feature on Joey Bada$$ to get even more informed about hip-hop’s next big thing.
