Rising NYC emcee Joey Bada$$, and his rap crew Pro Era, announced this week that they will embark on the Beast Coastal Tour this spring, making their way across the U.S. and Canada.

The 20-plus date tour kicks off in Portland on March 21st, and will make stops in Reno, Seattle, Santa Barbara, Boston, and Chicago, among other things. Things will come to a close in NYC at the Gramercy Theatre on April 20th, a concert in honor of late Pro Era co-founder Capital STEEZ.
Joey Bada$$ and his crew of fellow teenage visionaries CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, Dessy Hinds and others will be performing music from Joey's debut mixtape 1999, Pro Era's most recent critically-acclaimed P.E.E.P.
