It’s been three years since Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era, his young crew of MCs, dropped an entire project collectively. Since then they’ve been releasing solo material, highlighted by Joey’s acclaimed AmeriKKKan Bada$$. But Joey says that even though his music family never disbanded, they all had to spread their wings both personally and professionally.

While recently sitting down with REVOLT TV, Joey revealed that not only will the Pro Era album come sooner than later (this year!), but the lyrical clan are also hard at work on the posthumous LP by their beloved deceased co-founder Capital STEEZ.

“Alright, I guess I’ll just let the cat out the bag now” he said. “I think it’s a perfect time to since people think we all not doing anything. We’re working on the album. We’re gonna put out a Pro Era album real soon. King Capital is also coming real soon. But, yeah, we back on our shit. I ain’t gonna lie, there was a period of time where we were just really trying to figure it out. Everybody was young. Everybody was growing, becoming adults. We started this shit as kids. We kinda had to allow that grace period for all of us to really fall into ourselves and we’re definitely at that point now and we coming back stronger than ever. This album sounding crazy. I don’t even want to overhype it or do anything, but great stuff. [2017] for sure.”

Though there isn’t a release date for the Pro Era project or Capital STEEZ’s King Capital as of yet, Joey says he’s been recording a lot of new music.
