This week the “Under The Influence Tour” was announced and some sparks flew.  The tour includes an Allstar cast of emcees ranging from Joey Badass to Trinidad James.  Joey Badass, the young Brooklyn emcee had an issue with the performance list.  He thought it was unacceptable for him to be listed under southern emcee, Trinidad James.  Mr.Badass took to twitter, ranting about his displeasure for the list.  He also said he would not perform if he was under the “All Gold” James.


After his rant, he did however apologize to Mr. James saying “No disrespect to the man on gold.  But I just don’t like seeing myself at the bottom.” finishing with, ” I’m sorry I speak my mind. I’m sorry I know my worth.”  I honestly don’t know how I feel about his comments.  I understand knowing your worth, but I also feel like he should just perform and get his bread.  Fuck what the list say.  What do you all think? @bogaurd
