19-year-old Brooklyn hip hop impresario Joey Bada$$ will perform in Sydney for the first time on Thursday December 12 at the Metro Theatre.

Bada$$ made his mark last year with his 1999 mixtape, which attracted plenty of buzz online and led to bigger and better things – further proof of the P.O.I (power of the Internet, mister). triple j picked up the single ‘Waves’ before Bada$$ dropped Rejex: a collection of songs that did not make 1999. In June of this year, Bada$$ released Summer Knights and announced that his full-length debut album would arrive early 2014. Joining the fray will be fellow Brooklynites The Underachievers, a duo that has signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint and has toured alongside Kendrick Lamar, while hometown boy Remi will also represent.
