Pro Era Family Tree: Meet The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Crew Spearheaded By Joey Bada$$
Name: Nyck Caution
Bio: Caution might be the brightest diamond in the unexplored rough of Pro Era right now, with lyrics that ooze swagger and unabashed confidence and a flow that matches up perfectly. Just check out “Resurrection of Real” for what the kid can do—we would have taken a few bars from that track as his best, but there were just too many to choose from. He’s an all-star performer on The aPROcalypse tape, and shows up on “47 Goons” off Summer Knights to spit words that reference Harry Potter, Leonardo Da Vinci, Jorge Posada and the video game Absolution in 20 biting bars of sheer cockiness. He’s said that he’s got a tape dropping by the end of the year, and if it’s anything like his Pro Era jams, it’s one not to miss.
Best Lyric: “I’m a frog, you a cricket, once was just a tadpole
And I’m still a tad po’ trying to fix it
They ballin’ with no limits, reckless in the Rari’s
So how the fuck you expect me to be civil in Civics?”
