So I've spent the past fortnight or so trying to find out more about Joey Bada$$ & the rest of the Pro-Era movement & it's been real refreshing in doing so. Collectively I've spent hours trawling through youtube videos of cyphers around New York City, self directed videos & also the more recent 1999 mixtape from Joey Bada$$ & faith in hip hop has been somewhat restored.
A group of kids with a mutual love for music as well as a bundle of talent, that I think over the coming months will be received pretty well & most definitely have sustainability over a longer time frame. Without putting anymore cheesy, cliched labels on it, I'm real excited to see what's in store over the rest of this year for the New York based collective Pro - Era.
