You can expect big things from Pro Era in 2018.

On Tuesday afternoon, co-founder Joey Badass announced the record company has plans to release "so much music" in the upcoming months. 

​Joey also provided an update on the long-awaited Pro Era album and Capital Steez’s posthumous project, King Capital. The former is expected to drop this year, while the latter is "on the way."

​Joey announced the Pro Era album and Capital Steez project last summer during an interview with Revolt TV. It was at that time he also spoke about the collective’s growth and the number of projects it had on deck.

"Alright, I guess I'll just let the cat out the bag now," Joey told Revolt TV in 2017. "I think it’s a perfect time to since people think we all not doing anything. We're working on the album. We're gonna put out a Pro Era album real soon. King Capital is also coming real soon. But, yeah, we back on our shit. I ain't gonna lie, there was a period of time where we were just really trying to figure it out. Everybody was young. Everybody was growing, becoming adults. We started this shit as kids. We kinda had to allow that grace period for all of us to really fall into ourselves and we're definitely at that point now and we coming back stronger than ever. This album sounding crazy. I don’t even want to overhype it or do anything, but great stuff."

Though Pro Era, as a whole, was relatively quiet last year, Joey made waves with the release of his critically acclaimed sophomore album All-Amerikkkan Badass. He also claims to have co-written Post Malone’s 21 Savage-assisted track "Rockstar," which went on to become one of 2017’s biggest hits.

"I actually co-wrote the song w post," he wrote on Twitter, "[Q]uietly got my first #1 off that, more ghostwriting in 2018."

But that’s not all. In addition to rolling out new music, Joey also intends to make his older projects more accessible. He took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce his debut mixtape, 1999, would be soon be available on major streaming services, including Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal.
