Acclaimed rapper Joey Bada$$ is coming to Auckland after all.

The Brooklyn hip-hop star, who released his debut album 1999 in 2012, was due to perform alongside Nas, 2 Chainz Angel Haze and Chiddy Bang at The Movement festival in Auckland in April.

The show was canned with several stars struggling with travel arrangements.

Bada$$, born Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott, is instead coming to New Zealand to perform on his own, with a show at The Powerstation on December 6.

Tickets are on sale today through Ticketmaster.
