Nu Era is a up and coming rap duo (YoungStokes & Smokey) from North Carolina. They look to follow the path and direction that J Cole has set coming from the same area. Nu Era music consist of a variety of different flows, punchlines, word play and witty metaphors. Their influences are Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Tupac, Cassidy, 50 Cent and JR Writer. The two lyrically gifted rappers formed the group Nu Era while in high school and had been honing their skills long before that. YoungStokes (24) & Smokey (25) now look to take their talents to the music industry to be heard and become the new young voices in Hip-Hop. The only voices that would still have the authentic feel of old school lyrical rap mixed with the new sound all in one!
