After a very “progressive” year for the young spitter from Flatbush, the Pro Era general Joey Bada$$ is starting 2017 with a bang as his hit single “Devastated” has been certified gold by RIAA.

This is Jozif Bodmon’s first gold plaque in his brief career. Joey took to Instagram to celebrate this career milestone. Joey has been in the studio for some time now working on his forthcoming project “A.B.B.A.” which he said weeks ago was 90% finished. In his Instagram post, he proceeds to promise us new music next week. Looking forward to that! Check out the video for “Devastated” and purchase the song here to help get it to platinum status.
