Pro Era co-founder and platinum selling producer Powers Pleasant is quickly rising in the ranks of go to producers. He has proven that he can create a smash hit like Joey Badass’ “Devastated”. But he has also built a reputation on meticulously crafting tracks for groups like his Beast Coast comrades to air out.

Trying to recreate that feeling from their “Banned From TV” remake, Oswin Benjamin, Shawn Smith, and Chris Rivers would always be my go to’s for a dope posse track. And adding Nick Grant makes this
Regardless of who Powers links up with, it is going to be something worth looking out for. Lookout for him in the release of the latest Doomsday Cypher!
