Rapper Joey Bada$$ has been changed with assault after allegedly punching a security guard at the Falls Festival at Byron Bay.

The incident happened at around 8:30pm last Friday evening (January 1) when the rapper was about to go on stage for his performance at the northern New South Wales music festival.

Bada$$ (real name Jo-Vaughan Jalani Virginie) faced court in Byron Bay on Saturday and has been bailed to appear back at the Byron Bay Local Court on March 19.

At Falls, Joey Bada$$ left his fans wanting more when he cut his show short.

“To all my fans in Sydney, Australia I sincerely apologize but I could not finish the show my voice is too shot & I’m in pain…. Sorry,” he said in a Tweet.

Joey Bada$$ is scheduled for the HiFi in Sydney on Wednesday, January 7.
