It feels like that old New York hip hop again and it’s all courtesy of Joey Bada$$ and his movement, Pro Era. Emerging last summer as a major movement, Pro Era has only watched their momentum increase. The group is fresh off the release of their mixtape/independent LP, Summer Knights.
Very easily, Joey Bada$$ could rise to become the leader of the New York hip hop scene. He has made his way through the game at a young age and did something only a boss would do when he turned Jay-Z down. The move is reminiscent of, well, Jay-Z or somebody of that stature.
Joey Bada$$ started his day off early at Power 105.1, talking with DJ Self and kicking a freestyle. Bringing Kirk Knight along for the ride, Joey Bada$$ talked to DJ Self about bringing boom bap back, the Pro Era movement, and Summer Knights. Of course, they also had Joey Bada$$ kick a little freestyle.
