NYPD Reportedly Shuts Down Joey Bada$$ Show At Irving Plaza


The NYPD decided to cancel a Joey Bada$$ concert set to take place tomorrow (June 2) at Irving Plaza, Billboard reports. This comes exactly a week after the shooting involving Troy Ave at a T.I. concert at the same venue. Coincidence, I think not. Fans were not “devastated” for long as the “Unorthodox” rapper took matters into his own hands, moving the concert to another location.

Obviously the police are worried another incident could break out, especially with the history of beef between Troy Ave and Joey Bada$$ earlier this year, where Troy dissed the late Capital Steez of Pro Era. This is unfortunate, and hopefully not a sign of things to come with more rappers slated to perform at the venue later this month.
