It’s no question that since the emergence of the new Virginian music scene two mainstays have been Young Crazy and Era Hardaway. The two linked up for a production/artist collaborative project that released today at midnight This Is A Crazy Era. As we all know the collaborative project is a very popular thing amongst the music industry right now especially when both artist have a strong following, However most of the time it is hard to make the project make “sense” to the listener but that is far from the case on This Is A Crazy Era. With 6 tracks all produced by Era Hardaway, Young Crazy rips each track to shreds even incorporating a song that contains more of a west coast upbeat bounce to it which is something we have yet to hear from the legendary Norfolk artist. The project is full of punch lines or as Young Crazy coined “instagram picture captions” that are here just in time for your weekend. Take a listen to This Is A Crazy Era here now.
