New York City is finally back on the map, boasting a wealth of young and ambitious future prodigies. All of these releases stood out because, whilst they harked back to the past, they also brought something new to the table, mainly in the form of the kids dominating their territories. There were whispers that it might be over for Pro Era following this devastating blow, but thankfully these are just rumours. So, sad news of another wasted life and talent aside, the mixtape in question is actually a very upbeat and positive listening experience. As I said earlier, the group may be big roughly 20 members, give or take but there are no weak links here. The production is amazing throughout thanks to some gifted desk-whizzes, namely Statik Selektah, Kirk Knight, Chuck Strangers and more. The whole collection of songs oozes Brooklyn pride from every pore. The jazzy brass sections and instrumentals are beautiful at times and add a real class to the overall sound, and again giving it that vintage hip-hop feel. The teenage troupe are ferociously passionate about what they do and it shows on every single cut.
Pro Era “PEEP: The aPROcalypse” Release | @TheFckingERA
The photo gracing the Pro Era Tumblr page should be a joy for any hip-hop fan to behold. Seven of the 20 listed members of this impossibly young and prodigious New York crew are seated on a park bench, each flashing the kind of time-honored facial expression they likely saw dozens of times in The Source and practiced in the mirror: The Scowl! The Self-Deprecating Lookaway Laugh! The Ice Grill! When they dropped the mixtape PEEP: the aPROcalypse on December 21, it was meant as a valedictory address on their year-- they joked about it being "the last bit of good music you hear before this shit blows up. You can easily miss the brief mention below that picture regarding the events of December Jamal Dewar, aka Capital STEEZ died that night , and his chilling last tweet of "The End" led most to believe it was a suicide. The death of any year old is tragic, and in light of this, it can feel trivial or even disrespectful to evaluate PEEP as a work of art. It doesn't have to be-- as with the aforementioned picture, PEEP is frozen in time, using the vast reach of 90s hip-hop as a refuge. Every other member of Pro Era has a style that serves as a minor variation of those two. From a lyrical standpoint, they're dense but rarely intimidating, the penmanship owing to Nas ' twin phases as young prophet and ghetto philosopher, the modest presentation owing more to AZ or Cormega.

I am more compassionate towards people who I would have stigmatized earlier. I was sure I was just over sensitive until I read your posts. The odds are definitely not in OPs favor for something like this working for him. All I can recommend, as a docs wife of nearly 30 years, is prayer or to book a few sessions with a psychologist. Avoid the topic when you can, it's not something that'll be pretty unless handled in a calm discussion which Well, people as a whole tend to be pretty immature with big topics.
