Beast Coasts’ Escape from New York Tour wrapped recently in Baltimore as tie-dye dipped fans plied into MECU Pavilion. The Beast Coast collective is a Voltron-style supergroup is made up by the members of three smaller groups all hailing from Flatbush Brooklyn: The Flatbush Zombies (Meechy Darko, Erick Arc Elliott & Jewice), The Underachievers (AK & Issa Gold), and Pro Era (Joey Bada$$, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly, Kirk Knight & Powers Pleasant). The 10-man army released their first project as a whole “Escape from New York” at the top of the summer and have been touring the country since.
