It's been a long wait for Pro Era fans, but it's all going to be worth it as Kirk Knight and Nyck Caution finally release their anticipated Nyck at Knight project. The two Pro Era members release eight new tracks for their loyal supporters and new listeners, which see the two lyrical rappers in their signature element.

Bringing some authentic New York vibes to the project, only one record sees a feature outside of the rap duo, which is "Audiopium" featuring their Pro Era family. The rest of the mixtape is handled by just Caution and Knight, providing a heavy spotlight on their musical talents.

XXL got a chance to speak with both Nyck and Kirk about the new project, and they revealed the inspiration behind the mixtape's title.

"I mean, it was kind of always brewing since we did this video in like 2013," Nyck explains. "It was just like a studio session with me and Kirk and I think that’s when we came up with the name. I think and we were like, 'Yo, Nyck @ Knight' and then it was always a thing. But we both wanted to release our solo projects first. After those came out, the time was right and it just finally made sense to do it."
