Joey Bada$$ continues his breakthrough year by announcing that his already huge World Domination Tour has been extended even further. Originally scheduled to end August 7, in Austin, TX, new dates will take him around the East Coast and back to Europe before finishing up in early December.

The buzzmaking, Brooklyn-based emcee released his debut studio album, B4.DA.$$, on January 20 to both DJBooth and reader-acclaim, and his tour has been living up to its name with the addition of new dates after three successful phases; his Westside Connection and Worldly Festitivies legs took him up and down the West Coast of the U.S. and through Europe and Japan with fellow up-and-comers Mick Jenkins and Denzel Curry, while Beastcoast Takeover saw his talents explore the East Coast with Bishop Nehru and Pro Era crewmate Nyck Caution taking the place of Mick.

5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week

Isaiah Rashad, Sarkodie, Amindi, Tink, and Cookiee Kawaii all have albums you need to hear this week on Audiomack.

You can check out the full list of dates below, which kick off in Vancouver on September 19 and find him returning to the East Coast before swinging back to Europe and finishing up December 5 in Stockholm, Sweden (assuming we don't see yet another phase announced before then).

I'm still hard pressed to call him the number one indie rapper in the world, but it's getting harder and harder to deny he's in the conversation.
