Brooklyn’s own Pro Era has been methodically churning out talent, including the likes of leader Joey Bada$$ and the late Capital STEEZ. They’re a team that in the midst of “flashier” young crews have remained quietly consistent. The talent speaks for itself. Who’s got next on the team? Well, 20-year-old CJ Fly of course. The BK native got his feet wet this past Summer on the Under The Influence Tour, where fellow NYC collective A$AP Mob appeared alongside Wiz Khalifa. Now, with his solo debut Thee Way Eye See, CJ is ready to show the world what he’s got. Check out his video for Q&A and his profile below:
