Joey got the Edinburgh crowd involved in the show.
Joey Bada$$ loves to freestyle. We've seen this proven time and time again on various radio appearances, including a particularly ferocious take on Future's "Mask Off" earlier this year. On his European tour, Joey is taking his freestyling talents to the stage. A clip that surfaced on Twitter Saturday shows Joey going off the dome as the crowd repeatedly chants "Joey, Joey, Joey fuckin' Bada$$." By the end, it almost sounds strong enough to record a proper version. If the freestyle section is not already a regular part of his show, it probably should be. Watch the clip below.
According to the tweet, this took place at Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh, the 5th stop on Joey's fall European tour, which will take him through major cities like Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, and Stockholm. The rapper recently took in his first soccer game while he was in London, and strangely, happened to meet former NBA star Kobe Bryant there.
Joey is touring in support of his sophomore album Amerikkkan Bada$$, released in April. In July, Joey Bada$$ released more new music, and hinted that his prolific output would continue, tweeting, "A Now that it has begun, I won't stop. Stay tuned." He also shared plans to release a Pro Era album in the near future. I think it’s a perfect time to since people think we all not doing anything. We're working on the album. We're gonna put out a Pro Era album real soon," he said. King Capital is also coming real soon. But, yeah, we back on our shit."
