Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era Talk “New York Sound” With Pitchfork

Get hip to the program, if you haven’t tuned in to Pro Era yet, don’t miss out!

Joey Bada$$ is one of our “New Juice” crew members, and his straight-outta BK crew Pro Era is a gifted bunch of rhymesayers. They’re the missing link in Hip-Hop, a sound that has gone neglected within the streets of Gotham, and they embody the spirit that has become consumerized and conglomerated. The Progressive Era crew sit down in this video with Pitchfork TV to bust a freestyle and talk about how New York rap lost its sound.

There’s some jewels in this 9-minute video, so sit back, relax, press play and enjoy the sounds from Brooklyn’s own.
