Today, Joey Bada$$ is releasing his critically-acclaimed debut mixtape 1999 on digital streaming platforms and vinyl for the first time. The 2012 mixtape, which features Capital STEEZ and the entirety of Pro Era, was released when Joey was just 17-years-old as a dedication to the golden era of hip hop and was highly praised for its infusion of 90’s nostalgia and youthful energy. 1999 is now on streaming platforms and vinyl can be purchased at ProEra.com and your local record store.
In concordance with the release, Pro Era is announcing the full lineup for their fourth annual STEEZ Day Festival to honor their late comrade Capital STEEZ. STEEZ was the founder of the Beast Coast movement and originator of Pro Era. This year’s lineup features Pro Era (Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly, Chuck Strangers, Aaron Rose, Dessy Hinds), Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, STRO, Mick Jenkins, Madeintyo, and Jay Critch and more; with additional music by Powers Pleasant and Kitty Cash, and will be hosted by Ebro and Peter Rosenberg of HOT97.
This year, STEEZ Day is returning to the site of the very first STEEZ Day, New York City’s Central Park and is presented in conjunction with The City Parks Foundations’ SummerStage series and Bowery Presents. All proceeds from the festival will go to support Capital STEEZ’s family. Tickets are available now.
