To celebrate the anniversary of his iconic album, 2012’s 1999, Joey Bada$$ brought his unmistakably real flow and bars to the House of Blues San Diego for an unforgettable show and clinic in all things true hip hop. We sent a photographer out to capture the night’s highlights and in these pictures you can almost hear Joey’s gold standard for spitting rhymes. Along with 1999, Joey performed songs off his most recent album, 2000. Time seems to slow down at Joey Bada$$ shows. He likes to take audiences on trips to the past when hip hop was a little different and lyrics were king above all.
