LMFM Says: 
If you are already being touted as the next big hip hop act at the tender age of sixteen then you are clearly something pretty special. That, or the practice of grooming young and wide-eyed musical pop acts has clearly spread over into the world of hip hop. Joey Bada$$ can confidently say that no such grooming has taken place in his steady rise to the top. Independent mixtapes here and excellent live shows there, the now seventeen year old emcee has done a great job of responding to the 'next big thing' mantle by steadily producing excellent rap records that has led to the signing of a MASSIVE record deal. What's next for this little whippersnapper? MASSIVENESS, and much, much more.
