Joey Bada$$ might be a little paranoid at the moment... but he claims the U.S. government has tapped his phone. During an interview with Shade 45, Joey sat down with Sway to discuss the now-infamous Malia Obama "Pro Era" selfie, and said that he believes the government might be flexing its muscle on him. “When you got the leader of the free world’s daughter wearing your shirt, I guess they start to investigate,” Joey said. "They got my whole crib surrounded…I don’t sleep. I hear the clicks in my phone.”

Earlier this month, Fox News reported that the White House was investigating how the selfie found its way to Instagram. Joey's just-released debut album, B4.DA.$$, is currently available for purchase on iTunes now.
