After the Under The Influence tour was announced this weekend, it seems one of the acts involved wasn’t too happy with the line-up. Pro Era frontman Joey Bada$$ took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction with the order of the acts billed to perform on the tour, launching into a rant that was targeted towards newcomer Trindad James. The 1999 MC–who turned down a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation–was listed just below the “All Gold Everything” rapper. “If I’m under Trinidad James I’m not doing the Under The Influence Tour. Straight” Joey tweeted. “No disrespect to the man on gold. but I just don’t like seeing myself at the bottom. APEX.” He capped off the e-tirade with the following tweet, “I’m sorry I speak my mind. I’m sorry I know my worth.” Joey eventually deleted the tweets and later admitted his actions were a little childish.
