JOEY BADA$$ ANNOUNCES SCION AV SINGLE RELEASE, AND EVADES CRAZED FANS IN A SCION iA
Welcome to the future as Joey Bada$$ stars in a short film that highlights the standard features of the forthcoming Scion iA. In the first part of this featurette, the New York rapper and co-founder of the Pro Era youth movement takes a photo with two fans, which then instantly blows up his spot, unleashing a mob that doggedly follows him around Downtown Los Angeles. Then Bada$$ escapes in the Scion iA and tries to enjoy the car’s features including remote command controller, Bluetooth® hands-free phone and streaming audio, 7-inch LCD touch screen, and rear view backup camera. What happens next? Stay tuned for part two, coming later this week.
Scion AV has a history of collaboration with Bada$$ and Pro Era, which includes sponsoring a tour in 2014 and releasing the free EP Scion AV Presents: The Shift. Check out the video for “Hail Razor” from that project.
