Joey Bada$$ Is Postponing Tour Dates Due To Exhaustion

Joey Bada$$ & Kiesza Bust A Move In The New Video For "Teach Me"

Joey Bada$$ has been globetrotting for practically all of 2015 in support of his excellent debut LP B4.DA.$$. There’s a limit to how hard one young can go, however, even if you’re from the do-or-die Brooklyn hood of Bed-Stuy and are at the spry age of 20. In a letter posted to his Facebook page, Joey Bada$$ admitted to being exhausted and regrettably announced the cancellation of upcoming shows in Denmark, Norway, Finland and New Jersey. It seems the MC just needs a bit of a breather–and who could blame him? Read the letter below and join us in wishing him some good R&R. In the meantime, get yourself a copy of his LP over on iTunes.

To whom it may concern,

When the agents, managers, fans & friends don’t understand how I’m feeling, my body does. I’m deeply sorry to announce the cancellation of my shows in Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki, and Starland Ballroom in New Jersey but I am thoroughly exhausted. 2015 has been one hell of a year for me: I dropped my debut album, toured the world and connected with my fans on a level like never before… I did this all with little to no sleep and absolutely no breaks in between. Not to mention that I lost my tour manager (whom was also my older cousin) in a fatal car crash at this very time last year.
At this point I don’t feel healthy physically, mentally and emotionally and know that all of this would compromise my ability to perform, which is something I never want to do. Joey Bada$$ isn’t is a half ass performer. I’d rather return at my best then to give you guys the possibility of not having the full, true Joey Bada$$ experience.
I hope that this letter finds those whom it may concern very well. I will do everything in my power to make sure you guys’ love and support never go unnoticed. Not now and not ever. Denmark, France, Norway, Finland, Sweden, & New Jersey I owe you guys big time. See you next year when I’m back and better than ever.
