Joey Bada$$ – Eulogy

Multi-platinum chart-topping rapper Joey Bada$$, who appeared in the Academy® Award-winning film Distant Strangers, celebrates the one-year anniversary of his highly-acclaimed third studio album, 2000, with a brand new captivating music video for the standout “Eulogy.” Watch the “Eulogy” video above.

Through a flurry of cinematic VHS-like shots, the “Eulogy” video essentially documents Joey’s ventures and career progression since the release of 2000. It follows his sold-out shows, high-profile interviews, trips to foreign countries, and transition into the fashion world. It even features cameos from the likes of Charlamagne tha God, Coi Leray, A$AP Ferg, and more. However, Joey’s arresting lyrics remind viewers that he is still the same kid from 1999 but simply elevated at all angles.

On July 20th, Joey Bada$$ performed a special City Sessions concert with Amazon Music on the Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York City. As part of “50 & Forever,” Joey celebrated hip-hop’s 50th anniversary with a stellar performance sponsored by Amazon Music—during the performance, Joey shared the stage with Wale and Curren$y. The show was streamed live to fans around the world on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch.

Taking a look back at 2000, the album represented a critical and creative high watermark for Joey. Among many highlights, 2000 has garnered over 340 million total streams worldwide. In addition, Joey delivered a show-stopping performance of “Show Me” on NBC’s The Tonight Show, Starring Jimmy Fallon. Boasting a stacked guest list with JID, Larry June, Diddy, Capella Gray, and Westside Gunn, it also incited the applause of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, who observed, “You’ve heard Joey rap like this before, but the scope is plusher, a Bad Boy veneer slathered over corner-bred rhyme schemes.”

Released in July 2022, the album spawned Joey’s most recent singles, “Fallin’ and “Show Me.” Since being released in April, the track has garnered critical acclaim from tastemakers such as COMPLEX, VIBE, REVOLT, and UPROXX, to name a few. Meanwhile, “Show Me,” a short film featuring Serayah [Empire, BMF], has amassed millions of views.

Infiltrating culture, the Brooklyn native is also a series regular on STARZ original Power Book III: Raising Kanan. He will continue to tour throughout the summer with Lollapalooza up next.
