Joey Bada$$ has officially expanded his portfolio. The Pro Era lyricist, who is currently in the midst of promoting his upcoming Beast Coast album, has announced the arrival of his very own record label, “Badmind.” In the announcement tweet, Joey opened up about the move, teasing the inaugural drop from its first artist N.A.O. Quelly. “Proud to announce the launch of my new label #Badmind,” writes the young entrepreneur. “First single from my first artist drops tonight on all streaming platforms. Stay tuned for more.”
Since the tweet surfaced, Joey has made good on his word, dropping off Quelly’s debut look “Mo Betta,” which you can check out on streaming platforms here. While some might wonder whether such an endeavor will have negative repercussions on his Pro Era moves, the answer is no. So fear not, Beast Coast fans. It’s still business as usual.
Congratulations to Joey Badmon for the launch! While his lyrical ability is often praised, his business acumen can occasionally go unsung. Let this be a reminder that his goals transcend beyond the musical realm. Are you going to be keeping “Badmind” on your radar?
