Joey Bada$$ cancelled a handful of upcoming performances today. He explained the reasoning behind the decision on Twitter. “When the agents, managers, fans & friends don’t understand how I’m feeling,” he wrote, “my body does.” I’m deeply sorry to announce the cancellation of my shows in Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki, and Starland Ballroom in New Jersey but I am thoroughly exhausted.”
Due to non-stop touring and the death of his cousin last year, the rapper suggested that he’s unable to bring the right amount of energy to his shows at the moment. “At this point I don’t feel healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally,” he continued. “[I] know that all of this would compromise my ability to perform, which is something I never want to do. Joey Bada$$ isn’t a half ass performer. I’d rather return at my best… Denmark, France, Norway, Finland, Sweden & New Jersey I owe you guys big time.”
