The Come Up: CJ Fly

February 12th, 2014

XXL Magazine highlights CJ Fly, discussing his background in Brooklyn hip hop, joining Pro Era, and the future of the group. View excerpts from the article and lookout for new music for day Day 4 of Pro Era Week.

CJ FLY: Being from Brooklyn, you can’t avoid the music that’s around you. Outside, hip-hop will be playing on the radio; you want to be a part of something so deep in your culture. Being the Brooklyn kid that I am, I had to tap into it. [Brooklyn] definitely helped bring definition into the music and the view of what life was. It definitely had a big influence on that. Aside from Brooklyn, look at Bedstuy, for example—Jay-Z and Biggie. There’s a lot to top. Not in the whole Brooklyn, but just from my neighborhood alone. At the top, it’s Jay and Biggie.

Rapping just came naturally. I don’t think about it too much but I’ve always listen to music as a kid and I didn’t want to do anything else. I’ve always loved poetry, too. I definitely tried to fuse it. You can hear it even when I don’t try. You can hear an accent when I speak sometimes. I try to make my music American and sometimes in our raps, people say they can hear reggae in my voice. I wasn’t trying to, though; it was more natural. All the stuff I was listening to as a child comes out in my music.

I don’t try to sound like any other artist. Even when we were making Joey’s 1999, we didn’t really pinpoint the hip-hop and be like, “Let’s do this to sound differently.” But that’s what came up—that’s what we projected once we started rapping. We definitely try to manifest everything we’ve planned. But a lot of things were blessings and a lot just came.


I want Pro.Era to be as big as big as every rap crew in history. I want to be the greatest to do it in the history of legendary rap groups. We have a bunch of spitters with each one of them being able to rap. It separates us from a lot of groups. We can all genuinely rap.

House Shoes: The Purest Purist

February 6th, 2014

LA Weekly recently Highlighted Detroit’s own, DJ House Shoes. See excerpts from the article below.

Since relocating to Los Angeles five years ago, the man born Michael Buchanan has become one of the city’s best free-agent acquisitions, regularly spinning at low-key soul wax nights and feverishly crowded beat functions like Low End Theory and the Do-Over. His Twitter bio is mostly accurate: DJ, producer, curator, mentor, assassin. He’s the DJ as bruising power forward, adding necessary grit and rarely falling for pump fakes.

“If you’re a DJ and you only play hits, you have nothing to offer. Fuck all the robots. If I go to the club and it’s the same as listening to the radio, who fucking cares,” Shoes says, sipping a Tsingtao beer at a café a few blocks from his Koreatown home. “I don’t give a fuck about turning up. I’ll turn your shit off.”

This mentality was finely tuned during the latter half of the ’90s and early ’00s at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, the legendary hip-hop mecca graced by every great Motown rapper of the era: J Dilla, Slum Village, Eminem. We briefly talk about the time that he played Tupac’s “Hit ‘Em Up,” stopped the needle, broke the record and put on Notorious B.I.G.’s “Unbelievable.” The next week, the club got shot up in retaliation.

“Love me or hate me, you have to respect me,” Shoes, 38, says with a laugh. His head is shaved and his beard is grown out to match his “don’t give a fuck” temperament. When he gear shifts between “fuckboy genocide” to talking about his devotion to his two young children, it almost reminds you of Mike Ehrmantraut from Breaking Bad. “All I have is my family and this rap shit,” Shoes says.
