Their sound lifts me up, creates space in my cluttered mind – And I’ve been on them for a minute now, but recently I’ve been especially obsessed.
I spend ~3 hrs taking transit/day during the work week, so like a lotta people I cover my ears with speakers and bump some good feels. Lately, it’s been all about Pro Era.
From Brooklyn, New York, these guys make Hip Hop that somehow suavely braids old with the new – with class, with ease, with a natural vibe & respect in their artistry. Their sound pays homage, while also bringing you something completely different. The group consists of Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly, Nyck Caution, Kirk Knight, Dessy Hinds, Dirty Sanchez, Capital STEEZ (formerly, RIP) and a few others – a nuclear combination.
Favourite mixtape: P.E.E.P: The aPROcalypse (2012)
