Yesterday, Joey BADA$$ & his Pro Era crew released their debut tape as a full crew -
the topically titled, PEEP: The aPROcalypse -
which features the youthful NY dozen all trading verses & production
throughout 17 all new tracks.
To be honest, our expectations were pretty low for this one,
despite their pretty steady track record to date -
we all know how posse compilations like these usually turn out,
with more deadweight than actual worthwhile material.
But we gotta say, this one really might be an all too rare exception to the rule.
And although it is slightly overloaded & a bit too long for its own good,
it does make for a consistent & solid listen all the way through,
w/ all of the members holding down their own respective contributions
& very few skippable moments to be found.
If you’re in the mood for reliving the high school lunch room cypher feel
in some of its more realized & potent abilities -
PEEP is definitely worth the download.
