PRO ERA – PEEP THE APROCALYPSE

You might be wondering why we’re reporting on an album that was released six years ago in 2012.  ‘Peep The Aprocalypse‘ is now available on all streaming platforms for the first time, and comes with a brand new track entitled ‘Know The Rules’, featuring Pro Era‘s Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight and CJ Fly.  It’s the…

JOEY BADA$$ – LAND OF THE FREE

On his 22nd birthday, Pro Era kingpin Joey Bada$$ releases ‘Land Of The Free’, a Kirk Knight and 1-900-produced track taken from his upcoming album ‘AABA’.  Bada$$ doesn’t hold back in this four minute polemic against the current climate in American politics: “300-plus years of them cold shoulders/Yet 300 million of us still got no focus/Sorry America…

JOEY BADA$$ – DEVASTATED

Joey Bada$$ gave an official release to ‘Devastated’ this weekend, a track he performed live on stage at this year’s Coachella.  The Adam Pallin, Kirk Knight and Powers Pleasant-produced track is something of a departure from the Pro Era MC’s usual Boom Bap-influenced output.  We’re all for people switching up their style; but aren’t 100% on…

KIRK KNIGHT – DEAD FRIENDS [FT. NONAME GYPSY & THUNDERCAT]

Kirk Knight’s upcoming album ‘Late Knight Special’ gathers momentum with the release of ‘Dead Friends’, the third track to be released from the project [following ‘Knight Time‘ and ‘Good Knight‘.  In terms of the self-produced beat, it’s a pretty smooth offering, but Knight doesn’t hold back in terms of bars, with Noname Gypsy providing a nice…
