Happy Birthday, Joey Bada$$ And ?uestlove


Today is ?uestlove and Joey Bada$$ birthdays.

Joey Bada$$, the leader of Brooklyn’s supergroup, Pro Era, turns 19 today and was a member of the 2013 XXL Freshman class. Joey went on to drop the follow-up to his breakout 1999 mixtape this year with Summer Knights and became Creative Director of Ecko Untld. His new LP looks top be dropping later this year.

?uestlove, the Grammy Award-winning Roots frontman and drummer turns 45 today and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Although he’s worked with some of the biggest names in the game, like John Legend and Common, he hasn’t just stayed in hip-hop. ?uest has been in movies and even helped design sneakers as well.

That all? Of course not. He also placed 8th in the Rolling Stone Readers Pick for Best Drummers of all Time. We think he deserves to have his cake and eat it too.

Happy birthday,  Joey Bada$$ and ?uestlove!—Emily Cappiello & Emmanuel C.M.
