Damn… it really is blink-or-you’ll-miss-it with this guy. Small Professor releases the last of his trio of Japanese-themed projects with Yokozuna, a set of remixes from his Gigantic Vol. 0 tape from a few months back and a lil’ Guilty Simpson. Hope he gives us a break to catch out breath for a minute… And while we wait, go peep some previous stuff.
Named after the highest rank awarded to Sumo Wrestlers, Philly beatsmith Small Professor returns to the ring with his latest offering, Yokozuna. The eight track projects consists of remixes taken from his noteworthy debut producer compilation Gigantic, Vol. 1, which was released back in January. As an added bonus, Small Pro offers a new cut titled “The Easiest Way” which once again features Guilty Simpson over a Pro’s hypnotic use of strings and keys. This track should also come as a welcomed surprise by fans of Breaking Bad for it’s well timed dialogue sequence between Walter White and Jesse that takes place moments before Guilty delivers his lyrical assault. The duo make a fitting emcee/producer combination, so hopefully we’ll be hearing from from these two sooner than later.
