Pro Era – PEEP: The Aprocalypse

Earlier this year, TRU scribe Aaron had to virtually pull me kicking and screaming towards listening to Joey’s excellent 1999 tape. A 19 year-old kid with not one, but two currency signs in his name? Ehhh…

Well, eventually he convinced me to give the kid a try and I’m glad to say Joey certainly proved my preconceived notions wrong. This jaded old-head was not dissapointed. Checking this next project from his Pro Era crew will take considerably less convincing.

Sidenote: I’ve seen blogs call this a mixtape (as far as I know there’s no DJ involved though, and it’s not mixed in that sense) and an EP, but this thing is longer than Illmatic so it’s certainly not that. Their own Tumblr calls it a “FREE ALBUM” and that seems the most appropriate descriptor.

1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
