Pro Era’s CJ Fly dropped his debut project Thee Way Eye See It over the weekend. The 18-track mixtape, which you can stream and download below, features the Pro Era clan’s Joey Badass, A La $ole, Dessy Hinds and Dirty Sanchez. TDE’s Ab-Soul hops on for “Sadderdaze” and fellow Brooklyn rapper Buckshot returns to the game on “Side.” The laid back beats on Thee Way Eye See It comes by way of Pro Era’s Chuck Strangers and Carnage, Statik Selektah, Lee Bannon, Cy Fyre and the Entreproducers.
CJ Fly’s Thee Way Eye See It is less of a mixtape than it is a debut LP from the emerging rapper. Fly attempts to put a new twist on the ’90s East Coast rap sound that A Tribe Called Quest are known for. He does it well.
