About Joey Bada$$

Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott was born on January 20, 1995, and was the first of his immediate Caribbean family to be born in the United States. His maternal family originated from the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, while his paternal family originates from the island of Jamaica. He was born in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York City. He was raised in Bed-Stuy and attended the Edward R. Murrow High School. He originally enrolled at Edward R. Murrow to study acting, but transitioned towards music around the time of 9th grade, with a focus on rapping.

He started rapping under the name "JayOhVee", but eventually changed it to Joey Badass. He says that the name change is due to the media's focus on rappers with more cynical names, saying it was "what sounded cool at the time, what fit [his] mood". He began writing poetry and songs at the age of 11. Along with CJ Fly, he is a founding member of the collective known as Progressive Era, or Pro Era for short, which was formed by his high school friends Capital Steez and Powers Pleasant.

Joey Bada$$ Facts

  • Joey has been writing for most of his life, and like many other rappers, his introduction to music came through poetry. While talking to Interview Magazine he said, “I was always into poetry as akid. Poetry is rap, rap is poetry. I remember being in the first grade, and when I was introduced to poetry, I was like, “Oh, that’s the stuff that Biggie does. I love this stuff.”
  • Some people have to drag themselves out of bed in the morning and get themselves ready for the day, but Joey is the kind of person who enjoys having a solid routine. Each morning when Joey gets up, he likes to start his day by meditating and doing push-ups.
  • At this point, the world knows him as Joey Bad$$, but that wasn’t always his stage name. When he first got started, he was rapping under the name JayOhVee which is closely tied to his government name, Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott. He eventually decided to go with Joey Bada$$ simply because it sounded cooler.
  • Joey makes music simply because he loves it, but his goal is to use it as a tool to inspire those who hear it. Joey told Interview Magazine, ” I want to help other people with their lives, or help them understand what’s right or wrong, or what’s just human. They can learn through my mistakes or my beliefs, shit I went through.”
