It's hard to say exactly what sort of impact Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era crew will have on New York's rap scene. As younger kids who are excited about rap that came out mostly before they were born, they occupy a weird, unpredictable place in the industry. But what's key here is they're a wildly talented crew with plenty of room—and, let's be honest—time to figure out exactly how they want to use their skills. A whole load of the Pro Era crew came through our offices last week to talk about their recent attention, and then, because it seemed pretty fitting, they did some rapping. Catch Joey Bada$$ and the rest of Pro Era this Thursday, June 28th at SOB's.
