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

Chuck Strangers

Name: Chuck Strangers
Twitter: @Chuck_Strangers
Age: 22
Role: Producer/Rapper
Bio: Amidst the MF DOOM and Lord Finesse beats that made up the backbone of 1999 came the emergence of Chuck Strangers, whose production sets the tone in the first track and peaks with “FromDaTomb$,” which features a hilarious verse from him as well. Much more a producer than a rapper, Chuck also put together the spacy beat behind The aPROcalypse’s “Wrecord Out,” the reggae jam of Summer Knights’ “My Yout,” the classic head-nodding feel of “Satellite” and the swirling, reverb-heavy “Reign.” He also manned the boards behind the jazz-based “Beyond A Reasonable Doubt” collaboration between Joey and Action Bronson for the 2013 XXL Freshman mixtape. As he continues producing, his beats keep getting more complex and atmospheric, though he also claims he’s got other tricks up his sleeve outside the Joey-spearheaded boom-bap renaissance.
Best Lyric: “Life been getting better
Since they heard about the Era
They say Chuckie got beats, but his bars can be better
Well if you gonna suck my dick, make it wetter”
—”F A Rap Critic”
Best Beat:  “FromDaTomb$,” at least for now.
