Joey Bada$$ excited fans yesterday evening on Twitter with the announcement of his Beast Coast Tour. The 29-city run kicks off its United States leg March 22 in Portland, Ore, and will hit selective towns throughout the west coast, midwest, and east coast until it lands in Brooklyn rapper’s backyard April 21. Bada$$ will complete the tour with an additional five shows in Australia.

Fellow up-and-coming New Yorkers the Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers will join the “Survival Tactis” MC on the Beast Coast Tour, which solidifies that fans will receive that high octane energy they thirst for. While it hasn’t been confirmed, you should also assume that Pro Era members like CJ Fly will also show face throughout the tour.

The Beast Coast Tour takes Bada$$ to a higher plateau, considering that we witnessed his formal introduction to Hip-Hop through his critically acclaimed 1999 mixtape summer 2012. Since then, Bada$$ has garnered a cult following of fans of both the general population and peer variety.
