Joey Bada$$ is known as Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott by birth. He is an American rapper, singer, and actor from Brooklyn, New York City. The 27-year-old is a founding member of the hip-hop collective Pro Era.
His fame started when he posted a YouTube video of himself freestyling in October 2010. The video was uploaded to hip hop website World Star Hip Hop and captured the interest of the president of Cinematic Music Group, who later became his manager.
In 2012, Joey and Capital Steez posted a YouTube video for “Survival Tactics” through their channel “PROfckingERA,” which samples the 2000 Fold song by Styles of Beyond of the same name.
February 2012 saw Pro Era launch their debut mixtape titled The Secc$ Tap.e. MTV News then featured Joey’s verse from the video on a RapFix Live episode in March 2012; he later appeared as a featured guest on Sucker Free after a month.
After those little start, his success kept coming – albums and collaborations.
