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.
