Joey Bada$$ has his video for “Waves” premiere on MTV2. Not bad at all.

The Brooklyn rapper has been getting plenty of props from critics and fans alike thanks to his knack for vintage flows that will have you wondering how the hell is this cat just 17 years-old? A knack for selecting excellent beats to match his slick lyrics—see the recently released 1999 mixtape—also helps the youngster’s cause.

In the Va$htie directed clip for “Waves,” Joey goes about his daily rap life, from waking up in the early a.m. and going to class to rocking the stage in the evening. Watch below.
