Joey Badass wants Delta Air Lines to pay up. 

The East Coast rapper has accused the company of damaging $12,000 worth of studio equipment during a recent flight to Portland. Joey made the claim in a couple of Instagram stories in which he showed off a mobile studio rig with broken and missing parts.

“Yo Delta, what the fuck is going on, b? Y’all just messed up my fucking studio rig, bro,” he says in the video. “First of all, this whole shit had a case on it. Now it don’t got the fucking case on it. Y’all broke my fucking knobs. Like, y’all know how much this cost? Y’all going to have to reimburse all that.”

Joey says this was the second time in the past month that Delta has ruined his belongings.

“Y’all broke my fucking Rimowa bag, still ain’t pay up on that,” he added. “I’m a fucking diamond medallion member, like, what is good with y’all? I need fucking answers, Delta.”

A Delta spokesperson told TMZ their team is aware of the problem and intends to contact Joey.

“Delta teams will look into this described situation and reach out to the customer to address,” they said.

Joey is currently on the road for his 1999-2000 North American Tour, which will conclude in Los Angeles later this month. He is also preparing to unleash his 2000 project, which serves as a sequel to his 1999 debut mixtape. The effort will have 14 tracks with contributions from Westside Gunn, Diddy, JID, Larry June, and more.

2000 is scheduled to arrive this Friday.
