Joey Bada$$ makes Mr. Robot debut tonight + Pro Era celebrates STEEZ Day in LA‏

Last week Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era collective took over Los Angeles for their second annual STEEZ Day Festival to honor their late comrade and Pro Era founder Capital STEEZ. Pro Era shared the stage with ASAP Mob, Danny Brown, Raury, Hodgy Beats, Dirty Sanchez, and Dizzy Wright. Surprise guest Ab-Soul wowed the crowd by bringing Danny Brown back out to perform their influential song “Terrorist Threats” and Brooklyn’s The Underachievers surprised the fans with a set backed by Pro Era’s DJ Powers Pleasant. In a special moment during Pro Era’s set A$AP Rocky joined Joey to perform “1 Train” from Rocky’s debut album. All proceeds from the show went to benefit Capital STEEZ’s family.

While in LA, Joey also stopped by Real 92.3 and Power 106 to promote his single “Devastated” and took the opportunity to speak on the tragic events of last week. Joey touched on the loss of Alston Sterling by the hands of the police, police brutality, and the problem of systematic racism in America.

Tonight, Joey will make his television acting debut on the season 2 premiere of Golden Globe-winning show Mr. Robot. Season 2 will kick off with a two hour premiere special featuring back-to-back episodes. Joey will play the role of the protagonist Elliot’s new Seinfeld-obsessed friend, Leon. Mr. Robot airs tonight at 10pm EST on USA Network.
