Brooklyn crew Pro Era announce "sample-free" EP, The Shift – hear 'Extortion'

Fresh material from the sprawling collective.

Pro Era, the Brooklyn hip hop crew whose members include Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight, will follow up #SECCSTAPESVOL2 with a free release next month.

The Shift EP is their fourth as a collective and is billed as a “sample free EP that [...] highlights their diverse style and sound’.

Lead track ‘Extortion’ features verses from members Dyemond Lewis and Kirk Knight, who also produced the ‘OG Bobby Johnson’-influenced beat. Listen and download it below and look out for the EP, released through Scion AV, on May 27.

Joey Bada$$ is set to release his debut solo album this autumn, following last year’s Summer Knights EP and mixtape, while his recent single ‘Two Lips’ saw him rapping over a previously unreleased Dilla beat. Catch up with Pro Era producer and jungle fan Lee Bannon’s FACT mix, too.
