We've watched Malia Obama grow up a ton in the six years since her father became President. In the past year alone, the 16-year-old has gone to her first music festival, and even had her first photo controversy. Now, a photo of Malia has surfaced that hints that her musical tastes are maturing just as she is, as she reps the Beast Coast proudly in a Pro Era T-shirt.
The Brooklyn-based hip hop collective has rose to prominence over the past few years, in part to the widespread recognition received by crew member Joey Bada$$. In addition to its success, the crew has had its fair share of challenges in its short history, including losing founding member Capital STEEZ to suicide, and a controversy surrounding one of its logos that critics said resembled a Nazi swastika.
The Pro Era crew is taking full advantage of the free publicity, tweeting the photo of Malia with a link to its webshop where the T-shirt can be purchased. It's also great timing for Joey Bada$$, whose debut studio album B4.Da.$$ is dropping on Jan. 20.
