Junior B, a member of Pro Era and cousin to Joey Bada$$, has passed away following an accident.
Tragedy strikes the Pro Era camp today, with news that Junior B, a member of Joey Bada$$' crew has passed away. While details are not yet known, word of Junior's condition was reported by fellow crew member Swankmaster Raw last week, who tweeted that his friend was "recovering" from a "near fatal accident".
While Twitter has erupted with condolences for Junior, Pro Era leader Joey Bada$$ has announced the cancellation of his European tour following the news.

Junior was both Joey's tour manager and his cousin.
