Niche and Live Nation presents one of the most anticipated Hip Hop tours of the summer as 19 year old Joey Bada$$ makes his debut Australian tour with special guest and fellow Brooklyn-ites The Underachievers, plus Australia’s newest sensation Remi in support.

Heralding a return to golden era sounds yet remaining 100% a part of the new school thanks to appearances with A$AP Rocky and Mac Miller, Joey Bada$$’s lyrical form is beyond his years, his complex flow bubbling effortlessly on top of jazzy instrumentals.

In June 2012 his 1999 mixtape set the internet alight; with fans of new school Rap excited for something fresh and new and die hard old school heads being satisfied with something familiar. Triple j picked up the single Waves and following in September, Bada$$ dropped Rejex: a collection of songs that did not make 1999. In June 2013, he followed up with Summer Knights (featuring the jjj supported Word Is Bond) and announced that his full length debut album would be released in early 2014.

Signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, The Underachievers’ debut mixtape Indigoism came out at a time when Brooklyn was making all kinds of noise with acts like Flatbush Zombies and Action Bronson poised to take over. “Born in Brooklyn, raised in Flatbush,” Ak and Issa Dash – aka The Underachievers – have arrived. From the moment their first music video, ‘So Devilish,’ surfaced in May 2012, the duo set themselves comfortably in their own lane. The young rappers have since evolved from creating a DIY movement in Brooklyn to shutting down stages on tour with Kendrick Lamar and taking on the world, one hypnotic video at a time (clocking over 2.5 million Youtube views). With a raw energy that feels almost reminiscent of 90s hip hop, they shook the game up with a refreshing new voice, bringing plenty of psychedelia and heightened lyricism into the mix.

As members of the Beast Coast movement (which includes Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew), The Underachievers are part of the new wave of rappers that have been coming out of New York. But they’re also repping the West: last summer the duo signed to Flying Lotus’ label in LA, Brainfeeder.

There could not be a more fitting local guest to join Joey Bada$$ and The Underachievers on their debut Australian tour than Remi, who himself has torn a hole in triple j playlists with the jazzy Sangria and the funk-filled Saggin. His debut LP Regular People Shit was a top-notch mix of original electronic production, soulful harmonies and familiar samples whereas his new mixtape FYG (F*ck Your Genre) takes in all manner of influences from French filtered House, 90s RnB and even a nod to Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.

Culminating as one of the strongest Hip Hop bills of the year don’t miss Joey Bada$$, The Underachievers and Remi as they take over venues from coast to coast this December.
