So sleep on the progressive and wake up in the Medieval section

from Pro Era (Ft. Capital STEEZ & Joey BADA$$) – K.I.N.G.S. Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A play on Pro Era’s name — if you sleeping on the progressive times, they’ll just pass you by and you’ll be stuck in the past, medieval times.

The Progressive Era, the REAL Progressive Era was a period of political activism in the U.S. from the 1890s to the 1920s. A time where people pushed for purification of Government, a sort of waking up, perhaps. Which is just what Pro Era is about.

Medieval Times was a time of Barbarians. Really dumb down people.

Sleep on the Progressive and you won’t see their message for waking people up.
