Joey Bada$$'s career has been pretty wild so far. As a rapper, his music has garnered him both critical acclaim and many loyal fans—including the one-and-only Malia Obama. As an actor, he became one of the most intriguing characters in Mr. Robot history. So naturally the Brooklyn native has quite a few stories to tell.

During Thursday night's episode of VICELAND's Desus & Mero, Joey Bada$$ stopped by to discuss Brooklyn's gentrification, having the Secret Service on his tail, being a "thespian," and more. Check out the full interview below.
