CJ Fly of the Pro Era clique decidedly took a different route for this O.T. Genasis “CoCo” remix/freestyle. While everyone essentially adds a mere verse over the monstrous beat, hardly changing anything at all CJ went ahead and changed it up completely. Instead of loving the cocaine, CJ Fly is professing his love for the Mary Jane. Listen to CJ Fly’s “CoCo” freestyle “Dope Smoke” after the jump.

On Thursday October 23, 2014 the 7th Annual CMJ Takeover took place at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom. iHipHop.com was on-hand as a sponsor of the night’s event, which featured performances by Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era, Smoke DZA (along with members of R.F.C.), Cozz, SD, Raz Fresco, DP and more.

Just hours after dropping the “Christ Conscious” audio from his forthcoming B4.Da.$$ project Joey and the Pro Era crew drop the official music video. That’s a quick turnaround! In the video Joey does what he usually does: chills around Brooklyn. However, while chilling up on a rooftop he is suddenly elevated up into space. Pretty crazy stuff for 19-year-old kid. Check out the video after the jump.

Yesterday Pro Era’s de facto leader Joey Badass stopped by Shade 45 to spit a freestyle for DJ Tony Touch’s Toca Tuesday. Needless to say, Joey spits a badass freestyle over Sean Price’s “Figure Four” and G-Unit’s “Smile”. Though fans are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Joey’s new album B4.DA.$$ they will get a kick out of his freestyle session. Check it out after the jump!

Pro Era doing their best Odd Future here. As in, Powers Pleasant might have something up his sleeve that separates them from their 90s factionalism. Joey sounds smooth over this, and the space between his voice and the keyboards is finally imaginative instead of strict. Check this EDM influenced track after the jump.

Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.


 
The New Camp Clik is back in effect for freestyle demonstrations. CJ Fly, Dessy Hinds, Nyck Caution, T’Nah Apex, A La $ole, Dyemond Lewis, Swank Master Raw, Dirty Sanchez, Jab and Joey Bada$$ stepped out of a time machine to give an honorary session to the Old Heads they clearly respect.

There’s something to be said for a 19-year-old artist who has a sense of his place in time, and a sense of time in general. Joey Bad starts this video with “vintage footage” (if there can be such a thing for a teen rapper) and then transports himself into the antiquity of rap that he loves so dearly. He mighta translated even better on analog and VHS.
