Today, Pro Era is announcing the fourth annual STEEZ Day Festival to honor their late comrade Capital STEEZ. STEEZ was the founder of the Beast Coast movement and originator of Pro Era. This year, this year STEEZ Day is returning to the site of the very first STEEZ Day, New York City’s Central Park. This years lineup includes Pro Era (Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly, Chuck Strangers, Aaron Rose, Dessy Hinds), Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, STRO, and more to be announced soon. All proceeds from the festival will go to support Capital STEEZ’s family. Tickets for STEEZ Day will go on sale this Friday, 4/27 at Noon EST.
The announcement follows a particularly busy spring for Pro Era, during which Chuck Strangers released his debut studio album Consumers Park, Dessy Hinds dropped his first single, Kirk Knight went Platinum for his production of A$AP Ferg’s “Plain Jane” as well as joined Flatbush Zombies on tour alongside Nyck Caution. Joey has been heating up himself, dropping a slew of songs and freestyles, while kick starting his AMERIKKKANA tour this month. This year’s STEEZ Day is in conjunction with The City Parks Foundations’ SummerStage series and Bowery Presents.
