Kirk Knight – Good Knight ft Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies & Dizzy Wright
Finally the time has come for Pro Era underachiever Kirk Knight to release his debut album…well its almost time. The album titled Late Knight Special is expected to drop somewhere towards the end of October and will feature the likes of fellow Pro Era member Joey Bada$$, Mick Jenkins and the Mind.
After releasing Knight Time the albums first single Kirk has decided to follow that up with another release which keeps the homonym going however; this one will surprisingly not feature on the album. The track is titled Good Knight and it features a strong cast including Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies and Dizzy Wright. Now this is a combination that cannot be fucked with, how this track didn’t make the album is beyond me, it must have just not fit with the overall atmosphere of the album. I suppose in a way its a good thing because we get to hear it now instead of waiting another month for it.
If you are a fan of hip hop than you are going to love this track, those Pro Era boys are really stepping their game up and making a name for themselves. For me Joey is my favourite in the game right now, his style, his flow and that boom bap influence just gets me hyped up. And no you’ve got Kirk and CJ Fly out there killing it as well. Flatbush are always releasing dope shit along with Dizzy who is currently murdering tracks with Funk Volume. I mean its a good time for hip hop, once you look past the commercial garbage you will see that there is some seriously dope shit getting released.

SoulCircuit – Rolling With Me (I Got Love) ft Maverick Sabre (Nyck Caution Remix}
It’s not the type of track you would usually expect from a Pro Era member however; Nyck caution has decided to switch things up with his latest offering which is a cool remix of SoulCircuit’s Rolling With Me (I Got Love). More commonly associated with an old school bom bap sound the Pro Era member steps out of his comfort zone and delivers a groovy deep house influenced remix which certainly pays off.
The original track which is performed by SoulCircuit and features English singer/songwriter Maverick Sabre was released earlier in the year. Hip Hop fans should recognise the lyrics as they are taken from the late G Funk king Nate Dogg’s classic track Got Love off of his second studio album Music & Me. Nyck stays close to the original on this remix but at the same time ad’s his own distinct flavour to it that gives the track a deeper grove. At the beginning of the song the Pro Era goon jumps on the mic and drops a solid verse that proves he can deliver in both areas.
Check out the remix below and keep an ear out for anything coming out of the Pro Era camp because you just know its going to be dope!
Pro Era member Kirk Knight has delivered an incredibly dope mix for online music magazine HYPETRAK. The young MC puts together a 40 minute mix filled with predominantly fellow Pro Era tracks from Joey and himself however; he also adds some classic gems from hip hop greats such as Jay Z, Kendrick and Dilla. Although Kirk has featured on plenty of tracks over the years especially with Joey Bada$$, the Pro Era MC is still yet to release an album or mixtape. Hopefully 2015 will be the year we finally receive a full length project from the talented Pro. Listen to his mix below and be sure to check out his work and other Pro Era members!
