Pro Era Family Tree: Meet The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Crew Spearheaded By Joey Bada$$
Name: CJ Fly
Bio: With the release of Summer Knights and the impending drop of Joey’s debut album, the stage is set for CJ Fly to be the next to step out from the Pro Era umbrella. With rumors intensifying that his debut solo mixtape The Way Eye See It is on the horizon, he’s dropped two tracks that may be cropping up on the track list, with the most recent, “tug-at-war,” coming on his 20th birthday July 6th. He’s mysteriously absent from Summer Knights (save a quick appearance on the posse cut “Sorry Bonita”), but he was featured on three tracks off 1999 and was a standout performer on the Pro Era single “Like Water” alongside Joey and STEEZ.
Best Lyric: “But yo, then I wasn’t fully grown, no joke
Mood got blown when they found out that I smoke
Like damn, our son is an arsonist
Shine bright, get enlightened from the spark within”
