Pro Era - PEEP The aPROcalypse
Brooklyn's 17-year-old Joey BadA$$ turned heads this year with his stellar 1999 mixtape and a standout performance at the BET Hip-Hop Awards. In rap tradition, he’s bringing his crew along with him. Pro Era made its formal introduction with PEEP The aPROcalypse on December 21, and the ‘Net was buzzing about the group of teenagers’ talented rhyme skills and beats by the likes of Statik Selektah and Lee Bannon. The disc also will unfortunately also be associated with tragedy, as news of an apparent suicide by group member Capital STEEZ, 19, surfaced just days later on Christmas Eve.
