Joey took a photo with a "really cool guy" he came across in London.
Joey Bada$$ met a very famous athlete when he attended his first soccer game at London's Wembley Stadium, but it's not who you'd think. Posting to Instagram Sunday, Joey shared a photo with none other than NBA legend Kobe Bryant. "Met this really cool guy at my first futbol match today :)," he wrote. Joey is currently on a tour through the UK, which is what brought him to this particular match. He's already played a sold out show in Bristol, and his next show will take place October 24th in London.
Speaking of icons, Joey Bada$$ recently spoke of the influence he feels he had on Jay-Z's 13th studio album 4:44. "I know I was an inspiration to that album," he said. "There's nothing nobody can tell me...I put certain pressure on these OGs in the rap game, like they know what they gotta talk about now, cause they got this young n*gga Joey Bada$$ comin' out, talking about this shit before they got the chance to talk about it...I love the album, it's great, I'm glad he spoke about everything he spoke on and I'm glad I could be inspirational."
