6. Joey Bada$$
Borough: Brooklyn (Flatbush)
Signature style: Streetwear that anyone could pull off.
What were you doing at 18-years-old? Leading a resurgence in hardcore New York hip-hop and becoming the creative director of one of streetwear's original brands? If your name is Joey Bada$$, then yes you were. As Pro Era captain, leader of the Beast Coast movement, and Creative Director of Ecko, it's surprising that the young rapper has time to even dress stylish. His mixture of prints, denim, and fresh sneakers is a pretty tough combination to screw up. Joey Bada$$ has also had his hand in a couple great collaborations in the past year, too: most notably for a Stussy T-shirt and 5-panel collection with The Decades.
