Last night, Joey Bada$$ took to Twitter and Instagram to make a heartbreaking announcement: His cousin, friend, and a Pro Era manager and publicist, Junior B, had passed away.
Just over a week ago, a Pro Era affiliate tweeted about Junior B being in a near-fatal car accident, asking supporters to “send large amount of positive energy,” hoping Junior would pull through.
We send our deepest condolences out to Joey Bada$$, the Pro Era family and Junior B’s family as they cope with the news. Joey has cancelled the rest of his European tour in light of Junior B’s passing.
To my EUROPE fans: I have to cancel the rest of this tour… My cuz just passed and I can’t find the strength… I’m sincerely sorry
