Who is Pro Era? The collective most often associated with Joey Bada$$ is on the come up as one of hip-hop's movements on the rise. Fusing New York’s gilded age of rap with fresh vigor, Pro Era brings nostalgia to millennials.

The crew traces its beginnings to Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, NY, founded by a group of friends, including Joey Bada$$, CJ FlyPowers Pleasant, and the late Capital STEEZ. Now, with some 20 members, Pro Era features burgeoning rappers, producers, photographers, and designers. CJ Fly described it best on "Last Cypher": "Said we were just a bunch of kids, like the Brady Bunch/Style so miscellaneous, cats taking speed ain't in a lane with us/Favorite line of quotes/coats you can hang em up."

In 2013, the Pros were a part of the Under the Influence Tour with Wiz Khalifa, as well as the Beast Coast Tour with ascendants The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies. Pro Era kicks off 2014 with their third mixtape, The Secc$ Tap.e 2.
