Pro Era (Capital STEEZ, Joey Bada$$ & CJ Fly) - "Like Water" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Pro Era drops the video for "Like Water" - a single produced by Statik Selektah and dedicated to fallen Pro Era co-founder and MC, Capital STEEZ. The track from their PEEP: The aPROcalypse mixtape features Capital STEEZ, Joey Bada$$ and CJ Fly delivering a heartfelt set of verses driven by a somber piano reminiscent of the Lonnie Liston Smithsample for Jay-Z's "Dead Presidents." The track also features a sample of the Nas classic "It Ain't Hard To Tell." The video directed by Jonah Schwartz features Capital Steez's verse against visuals of his crew at points across Brooklyn. Joey Bada$$ and CJ Fly rhyme against greying facades and commandeer the docks to throw their words out at the river's edge. The footage closes as they carve out a bit of empty space on a rooftop for a mural in memory of Capital STEEZ - their fallen friend hovering just above the city streets.
