Pro Era Songs

  • Did U Ever Think
    Did U Ever Think
    Flatbush Zombies are really treating us with their weekly "Day of the Dead" releases. The past few have been consistent heat--with features from grime legend Skepta, Domo Genesis, and A$AP Twelvyy--and "Did U Ever Think" is just as solid. This time, the Zombies don't need to look far from home, finding fellow Flatbush man Issa Gold, part of The Underachievers duo, and Bed Stuy's Joey Bada$$, hot off the release of his debut album.
  • Perception Vs. Reality
    Perception Vs. Reality
    After a successful debut, B4.Da.$$, at the beginning of the year, Joey Bada$$ has been relatively quiet. After hearing a track with Houston's Maxo Kream, we now get a leak of Joey's latest, "Perception Vs. Reality", which is produced by Pro Era crewmate Kirk Knight.  
  • Brokeland
    Pro Era seems to abide by the Puff Daddy ideology of "can't stop, won't stop", because the collective just keeps dropping new tunes. It hasn't even been a month since the release Joey Bada$$'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. 
  • The Wind
    The Wind
    Joey Bada$$ is fresh off the release of his debut album B4.DA.$$, and with that project off his plate, Pro Era's go-to producer Chuck Strangers gives fans a little something to get them through the winter months. It's an instrumental which he did when that "blizzard" hit NYC, and as he wrote on Soundcloud, "If you snowed in or just Rollin up, bump to this." So we shall.
  • Curry Chicken
    Curry Chicken
    Joey Bada$$ just dropped his latest song, "Curry Chicken," less than a month before the release of his debut album, B4.DA.$$. The 19 year-old spits over a soulful instrumental melody with his characteristic introspective lyrics and measured pace. It's a funky track, with scratching and a helium voice in the background, but it's solid, nonetheless. 
  • Dope Smoke (CoCo Freestyle)
    Dope Smoke (CoCo Freestyle)
    When it comes to drugs, Pro Era pretty much definitively has one they favor over all others: ganja. Today, one of them, CJ Fly, takes on OT Genasis' coke-fueled anthem "CoCo" and fittingly re-titles his take "Dope Smoke." 
  • Niggas Gotta Eat Tho
    Niggas Gotta Eat Tho
    Chuck Strangers is currently putting together a solo project entitled The Black Kids Are Late to Surf Class... Again, but before that arrives, the Pro Era beatmaker has shared a brief instrumental called "Niggas Gotta Eat Tho" to hold us over.
  • Extortion (Dirty)
    Extortion (Dirty)
    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.
  • Kingdom (Remix)
    Kingdom (Remix)
    Common, Vince Staples and, eventually, Jay Electronica's track "Kingdom" has certainly been one of the most powerful hip-hop tracks to have been released all year. With gospel-style backing vocals and lyrics dealing with youth violence, the Nobody's Smiling highlight clearly moved Pro Era's Dessy Hinds, because he's just dropped a remix of the track. 
  • Moneyball
    Following the release of a series of a trailers and one official video, Jared Evan & Statik Selektah's highly-anticipated follow up to Boom Bap & Blues is finally in stores. Subtitled Still Blue, the spiritual successor sports some typically high-quality tracks from two of the most talented men in the industry. Highlighting the tape, however, might just be "Moneyball." Featuring Nyck Caution & Dessy Hinds of Pro Era, this laid-back jam should be just what you need to start your Tuesday off right. Feelin' the track?
  • Get Paid
    Get Paid
    Joey Bada$$ has apparently completed his long-awaited debut album, B4.DA.$$, but it's still without a release date. To hold fans over until it receives one, Joey has shared a choice outtake from the album on his Souncloud today."Get Paid" is the raucous boom bap we've come to expect from Mr. Bada$$, and seeing that it didn't make the cut of the record, expectations should be pretty high for the tracks that did. 
  • Hot Nigga (Freestyle)
    Hot Nigga (Freestyle)
    The hype around Bobby Shmurda's "Hot Nigga" has inspired a wave of freestyles over the instrumental, which is funny, seeing as the Shmurda track was a remix in itself, with the rapper going in over Lloyd Banks' "Jackpot".Either way, it's clearly taken a life of its own, and Pro Era's Dyemond Lewis is the most recent rapper to reinvent the beat, bringing yet another approach to the track, while still keeping things definitively New York.Lewis shouts out both Joey and the late Capital Steez, as well as doing plenty of bragging of his own. Is he next up?
  • Hail Razor
    Hail Razor
    A La $ole, Dessy Hinds and CJ Fly connect on "Hail Razor," the latest reveal from Pro Era and Scion AV's upcoming free EP The Shift. Unfortunately, we only have a clean version of it for the time being. The track finds the young New York City emcees delivering lyrical exercises over a creeping, boom bap-indebted instrumental from Backpack. Can you dig it?     
  • Mr. Wonderful
    Mr. Wonderful
    UFC light heavyweight fighter, Phil Davis is getting ready to face off against Anthony Johnson this Saturday, and he now has some brand new entrance music for the occasion. Joey Bada$$ has recorded a new track, which takes its name from Davis' Pseudonym (which he shares with his cat), "Mr. Wonderful". The lyrical assault goes on over a beat provided by Kirk Knight, and while it lasts only two minutes, it's likely perfectly timed with Davis' walk to the ring.
  • Far
    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.
  • Give Her A Call
    Give Her A Call
    Pro Era keeps the new releases coming today, as part of their Pro Era Week which will last all this week until we see the release of the crew's new mixtape, Secc$ Tap.e Pt II.
  • Dirty Dancing
    Dirty Dancing
    Pro Era's leader Joey Bada$$ let go a new cut over the past weekend, "Pantie Raid Pt. 2", which was to kick off the "Pro Era Week", a week which will end with the release of the crew's new mixtape  Secc$ Tap.e Pt 2 dropping this Friday, February 14th, in time for your Valentine's Day plans.
  • Pantie Raid Pt. 2
    Pantie Raid Pt. 2
    Pro Era is gearing up for it's new Secc$ Tap.e Pt 2 mixtape, which will be released soon, with "Pro Era Week." Of course, "Pantie Raid Pt. 2" is only the first of many drops which we will see from the Pro Era crew. Perhaps unsurprisingly given his repertoire, this track has a smooth, laid-back sound to it throwing back to the good ol' 90's. Of course, some awesome production from Bruce Leekix certainly helps the matter.
  • Mo Wetter Blues
    Mo Wetter Blues
    One of the lesser known Pro Era members, Dessy Hinds, drops a track in celebration of his 20th birthday. The naturally 90s-inspired track features production from 6thBoro. The crew's upcoming Secc$ Tap.e Pt 2 mixtape is due out on Valentine's day. Quotable lyrics: "But all we really need are good trees to light the flames/ To match the candlelit dinner we ate on the 28th/ And all it really takes/ Is me having the cake, to cut your cake/ And put it in your face"
  • Sol Luna
    Sol Luna
    Joey Bada$$ recruits his Pro Era crew members for a new boom-bap effort.  Dyemond Lewis supplies the hook, while A La $ole comes through with a razor sharp third verse, but for the most part, it's Joey's show, who takes the first two 16s. The new cut will land on Pro Era's upcoming Seccs Tap.e Pt. 2 mixtape.  Quotable lyrics: "Cause this ain't nothing like the rest/ I'm nothing but the best/ They put me to the test/ And I swear I come correct"
