There’s no way you spun Joey Badass’ debut studio album B4.DA.$$ and didn’t immediately nestle into its old-school bump. The young rapper gets criticized for borrowing too heavily from his influences, but the chewy listen at last properly introduced the rising hip-hop star, no matter what growing pains you might prescribe for any stylistic lack on the otherwise critically praised release. Joey Badass is exactly the kind of young star we ought to prop up, so go get a piece of his mind and if you’re real gung-ho, spring for the VIP meet-and-greet.

8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22 | Venue 578, 578 N. Orange Ave. | 407-872-0066 | venue578.com | $25-$115
