Pro Era rapper and producer Chuck Strangers recently released his long-awaited debut album Consumers Park, flaunting his talents across 14 stellar tracks. With Strangers producing for everyone in the Brooklyn-based crew and offering up some memorable guest verses, everything comes together perfectly. Upon release, Joey Badass told fans, "If you looking for them classic #PROERA vibes or just a breath of fresh air then you need to bump this now," and he couldn't be more right.
Less than a month after releasing Consumers Park, Strangers is revisiting one the album's most immediate highlights with the video for "Style Wars," which features a Joey verse. Channeling the group's earlier output, it's a refreshing change of pace from some of the more popular hip-hop currently making waves, and the video does a lot to contribute to that feel.
Following Strangers and the rest of Pro Era as they proudly represent New York City, the "Style Wars" video is a well-deserved victory lap that offers a brilliant reason to revisit the project. When we spoke to Strangers, he explained that the record was a long time coming, and that he had been working on some of songs since he was a teenager. "Some of the raps from this album I wrote in like 9th grade; some of the lines," he told us. "You do take your whole life... I think about whole songs that I made back then that were awful, but one line is like, that’s not bad."
