With a style deeply rooted in 1990s East Coast hip-hop, Joey has often been praised for his lyricism, flow, and dedication to keeping the traditional hip-hop sound alive.

1995-2010: Early Life Born in Brooklyn, New York, Joey Bada$$ grew up in a family that was well-versed in arts and culture. He attended the Edward R. Murrow High School for Communication Arts, where he studied acting but later shifted his interest towards music.
