Joey Bada$$ at Forbidden Fruit - Speakeasy interview

Hip-hop's rising star popped by our festival abode to chinwag with Craig Fitzpatrick, discussing world domination, creative processes, and why he's 'loving the green'...

Forbidden Fruit saw a serious hip-hop bill on the Saturday, and perhaps nobody excited the crowds more than Joey Bada$$.

The New York youngster has raised eyebrows - and the bar - in the past number of years, and before a blistering main stage performance, he stepped between our tentflaps to chat with our own Craig Fitzpatrick.
