Pro Era Family Tree: Meet The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Crew Spearheaded By Joey Bada$$



Name: Lee Bannon
Twitter: @Bannon916
Age: 25
Role: Producer
Best Songs: “Run Or Fly,” “47 Goonz,” “95 ‘Til Infinity”
Bio: A sometime-producer and collaborator, Bannon functioned as Joey Bada$$’ touring DJ during his 2012 outing, before making way for Statik Selektah, who performed those duties on Pro Era’s Beast Coastal tour earlier this year. He produced four tracks off Summer Knights, including the single “’95 til Infinity,” a piano-based track that saw Joey unleashing his most ferocious vocals to date.

Name: T’nah Apex
Twitter: @T_NaahAlex
Age: 19
Role: Singer
Best Songs: “Snakes,” “Suspect”
Bio: The female vocalist most closely associated with the Pro Era crew, T’nah showed up to croon on a number of P.E. and Joey hooks, with her coming-out party on 1999’s “Snakes” putting her in the public eye. Her verse on 1999’s posse cut “Suspect” was the world’s first taste of her as a lyricist, and the results were not disappointing.
