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.
It’s safe to say hip-hop isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And thankfully it doesn’t have to as there is plenty of talent out there to carry the game for years to come. In addition, there’s always a slew of new talent cropping up in the scene. Be it due to hard work or going viral, dozens of fresh rappers are gaining exposure every year. Peep our list of the 10 rappers you probably don’t know about in 2014, but will soon be seeing everywhere.
Honorable Mentions: Sulaiman (Hook, Line, and Sinker), Cavalier (The Offering), Rast RFC (Across West 3rd Street), Antwon (Heavy Hearted in Doldrums), Jimmy Johnson (In God We Trust), GoldLink (The God Complex), Robb Bank$ (Tha City).
Check out the full list after the jump.

CJ Fly follows up “Sadderdaze” — one of our favorites from last week — with a Joey assist. This is smoother and a hint toward the overall feel of his tape Thee Way Eye See It. Get your Sunday listen on. Hat tip to HipHopEarly.com.
CJ Fly and Ab-Soul rip it over the 9th Wonder “Ether” remix beat. It’s a good preview of CJ Fly’s The Way Eye See It. Soul-o tries subversion by flipping a classic Hov verse to close with a touch of irony. Fire.
Joey and some of his Pro Era crew including Kirk Knight and CJ Fly stopped by DJ Green Lantern and Boss Lady’s radio show to spit a couple of bars. Check out Joey’s Rejex mixtape too for some new unreleased music from the group.
