Joey Bada$$ – ‘Waves’ | Music Video

After getting both on-set snapshots and behind-the-scenes footage earlier in the week, today 17-year-old hip-hop phenom Joey Bada$$ presents the music video for “Waves”, plucked from his recent debut project, 1999 (read our review here). The clip is imagined by video director, style icon and all-round cool chick Va$htie (credits include CRS‘ “Us Placers”, Kendrick Lamar‘s “A.D.H.D.” and Big K.R.I.T.‘s “Boobie Miles”), who takes things to Joey’s stomping grounds with his Pro Era crew in toe.

Unfortunately, the video is only available for playback within the US (copyright laws, eh?) but we’ll update the post once an alternative version becomes available. 1999 is out now.

Update: Globally viewable version
