A few years ago, several artists from New York City emerged and helped place the city back in the headlines with new blood. After closing out 2012 strong, it looked like Joey Bada$$ would be 2013’s breakout New York City artist. But, instead, Joey Bada$$ ended up taking time off to work on his music behind the scenes.
Joey Bada$$ ended up taking a background role in both 2013 and 2014, setting the stage for a big show in 2015. Earlier this year, Joey Bada$$ revealed he does indeed have a new album in the works. This is his debut album, B4.Da.$$ and it is set to be released in the early stages of next year.
B4.Da.$$ is the first major album from Joey Bada$$ and it officially establishes the company, Pro Era, as a record label. With the album coming in a little over a month, the official artwork for the album, and the track listing, was released. Meanwhile, the release date for the album is set for January 20.
