Nyck Caution has been crushing 2016. He dropped a trio of tracks earlier this year, but he’s apparently not done yet. Earlier today he posted “Wordsmith,” with production from fellow Pro Era member Kirk Knight. True to the song title, Nyck Caution wrecks the track with some impressive wordplay and a high energy delivery. The emcee had to come correct over Knight’s crushing production that features a sample of heavily distorted bass guitar as its centerpiece. Caution just keeps on getting better and better.
Kirk Knight Feat. Noname Gypsy & Thundercat
Kirk Knight continues to roll out new music in support of his upcoming debut album Late Knight Special.
Kirk Knight Feat. Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies & Dizzy Wright
Kirk Knight really won't let the homonym that is his name go.
Kirk Knight announced his debut album this morning, with the cover artwork, release date and title. The Pro Era MC's first solo album is coming out right around Halloween, on October 31st, and with his penchant for dark vibes, not to mention the constant play he does on the homonyms knight/night, this seems pretty appropriate.
Chelsea Reject Feat. Kirk Knight & Tnah Apex
We haven't heard much from Chelsea Reject on these HNHH pages in the past, however that's all about to change on Monday when she drops her new mixtape exclusively with us, CMPLX. The Brooklyn rapper has affiliations with the Pro Era crew, and after appearing on Dirty Sanchez's "Non-Believers," several of the Pro Era boys will make an appearance on CMPLX.
As Pro Era's resident double threat, Kirk Knight has been honing his skills in the booth and behind the boards with a smattering of solo tracks over the past year or two. His last, "Brokeland," was very good, but "Give 'Em" might even be better.
Perception Vs. Reality
After a successful debut, B4.Da.$$, at the beginning of the year, Joey Bada$$ has been relatively quiet. After hearing a track with Houston's Maxo Kream, we now get a leak of Joey's latest, "Perception Vs. Reality," which is produced by Pro Era crewmate Kirk Knight.
Pro Era seems to abide by the Puff Daddy ideology of "can't stop, won't stop", because the collective just keeps dropping new tunes. It hasn't even been a month since the release Joey Bada$$'s debut album and already his Pro Era family, Kirk Knight is hitting us with something new of his own. The self-produced record is called "Brokeland" and features adlibs from Wayne "Heirowayne" Harewood and mixing by Nastee. Sounding like something better fit for the mid-90s, "Brokeland" finds the young MC detailing many of the things you can come across in the mean streets of Brooklyn.
Kirk Knight Feat. Dyemond Lewis
The only glaring absences from Pro Era's otherwise-stellar The Shift EP (released back in May) were the curse words. The EP, released in collaboration with Scion, was presented only in its clean form, with no explicit version being offered as an alternative. Now, Kirk Knight and Dyemond Lewis have linked up to change that, at least for one of the tracks.
Mick Jenkins Feat. Joey Bada$$
When we spoke to Mick Jenkins the other week he expressed an interest to work with his fellow Cinematic Music Group artists, lo and behold, one such collaboration appears on his brand new mixtape The Water[s]. The chemistry between Mick and Joey is real, as the two trade bars over hard-hitting production from Kirk Knight, which also includes a Biggie sample from "Dead Wrong."
Today Joey Bada$$ decides to finally let go the first single from his anticipated debut album, B4.DA.$$, which has been in the works for quite some time. Basically shortly after he set foot into the game with his mixtape 1999 we started hearing about B4.DA.$$, but it's been kept tightly under wraps for the most part.
Kirk Knight Feat. Dyemond Lewis
As we saw Tree do earlier this year with The @MCTREEG EP (still one of 2014's best releases so far), Kirk Knight is linking up with SCion AV for his new project, The Shift. His newest release from the project is self-produced, and features contributions from Dyemond Lewis.
Nyck Caution Feat. Kirk Knight, Tnah Apex & Dirty Sanchez
Pro Era Week continues, as we await the new mixtape Secc$ Tap.e Pt 2 which will finally arrive later today. Until that time arrives, we've got Nyck Caution on a track with Kirk Knight, Tnah Apex and Dirty Sanchez for you to listen to/download.
Pro Era continues to keep the tracks rolling in as part of their current #ProEraweek.
