    Rappers Share Their Smoking Preferences For 4/20

    Today may not be a government-mandated holiday, but for those who advocate a green lifestyle, it's just as important as any other statutory holiday.

    Joey Bada$$ is a young Brooklyn emcee who was influenced by those who came before him from his region, the same way most young rappers from any region show clear influence from those who came before them in their region. As rappers from other regions have begun to dwarf New York rappers in popularity and New York rappers have begun taking more influence from other regions, some have viewed Bada$$’ New York influenced style as a flaw. In defense of Bada$$’ critics, outside of being skilled lyrically and having a healthy dose of cynicism in relation to authorities, who is Joey Bada$$?
