As Statik Selektah was announced as Joey Badass’ tour DJ, it was only time until the full Pro Era crew came through to Showoff Radio and performed a cypher for Statik Selektah. Joey Badass’ rise to fame continues as he was named by Vibe Magazine as one of “8 Rappers Who Could Be Future Kings of New York” and rumours of further work with DJ Premier, Madlib and MF Doom continue to circulate around the internet. You can watch the Pro Era Cypher on Showoff Radio with Statik Selektah on the YouTube player below.
This is another title the Hip-Hop world has been waiting for, and although it’s just under two weeks since Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “Control” caused so much debate, Joey Badass releases Killuminati 2 (Kendrick Lamar Response). Joey Badass usually brings the plaudits out in force and I fully expect Killuminati 2 to do exactly the same. Listen out for the wordplay and punchlines.

There aren’t a lot of rappers that can claim to have sold out two venues in a matter of days, a feat usually reserved for heavyweights of the hip hop world, but Joey Badass and his Pro Era collective have been making massive waves in the hip hop world in previous months.
Despite being only 17, Joey Badass took to the stage like he had been doing it for years. Joey’s chilled flow was given some verbal energy from CJ Fly and Kirk Knight with lesser known members of the group keeping the crowd hyped. He and Pro Era kept the party like atmosphere going for over 90 minutes and brought the gig to an end with an impromptu freestyle and a second helping of ‘Survival Tactics. Their stage presence was one I can only compare to that of the Wu Tang Clan which is hardly surprising considering their ‘golden era’ sound and size of the collective.
Recently being co-signed by RZA of the Wu Tang Clan only affirms the talent that this group have. The Pro Era mix tape, announced for December 21st, is definitely one to look out for and will hopefully see some production from RZA. With the massive success of their, albeit small, UK live debut, I wouldn’t bet against seeing Pro Era in the UK again very soon.
