Interview with Pro Era's Joey Bada$$ and Kirk Knight at STEEZ Day

Recently I was invited to attend Pro Era’s STEEZ Day Festival honoring their late member Capital STEEZ. The lineup was stacked with big names in hip-hop like Danny Brown, A$AP Mob and Pro Era, so I was very grateful for the invite. Throughout the night I photographed the music acts on stage, as well as the artists hanging out backstage. Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$ and Kirk Knight were nice enough to take the time to talk to me backstage about their late friend Capital STEEZ and how they look to honor his legacy. Joey also stuck around to give a few comments on his feelings of social responsibility, especially during these times of social turmoil. I submitted a story comprised of my interviews, writing and photos to HYPETRAK where it was featured and shared across the web.

“I think it’s important that people with platforms and voices step up at this time and speak about it because people really listen to us and our messages really go far… and it’s that time, because we need justice. Honestly, it won’t be the evil people that destroy this world it will be the people that sit back and do nothing.” – Joey Bada$$
