Joey Bada$$ Won’t Perform Under Trinidad Jame$ On “Under The Influence” Tour


When it comes to live performances, Joey Bada$$ won’t be put in the corner by anyone – and that includes his fellow XXL Freshman Class of 2013 member Trinidad Jame$.

In a series of Tweets that have since been deleted, the Flatbush rapper said that he would refuse to perform as an opening act on Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky’s “Under the Influence” Tour. He said that while he meant the Tweets as no disrespect to Trinidad Jame$, who appears after Bada$$ on the tour flier,  he feels that he is more of an “APEX” artist.

If I’m under Trinidad James I’m not doing the Under The Influence Tour. Straight

In addition to Jame$ and Joey, the “Under the Influence” Tour features headliners Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky, as well as performances from B.o.B, Berner, Chevy Woods and Smoke DZA.
