Gotta Hear This: Small Professor | “Cool Story, Pro” [Instrumental LP]
In what could be called paying homage to Harlem’s iconic hip hop producer Large Professor, aptly named Philadelphia native Small Professor arises from the underground again with his latest effort, Cool Story, Pro.
After linking up with some of hip hop’s best kept secrets earlier this year with Gigantic, Vol. 1, Pro comes back with an all-instrumental effort that also serves as somewhat of an introspective look into the budding beatmaker.
“Cool Story, Pro is an almost 49 minute long tale about finding love and then losing it told through beats soaked in chopped and screwed 70’s soul records,” the beat maestro says on his website. “The story itself did not happen…but the feelings that inspired it were real, and making this album was like therapy. This is the part of the album description where you say, Cool Story, Pro, and just peep it for yourself…maybe you’ll stick with what my intent was in making this album as a whole, or maybe you’d just like to listen to it on your own terms…whatever you choose to do, I hope that you enjoy it.”
