L PRO presents Vertigo, a collection of joints produced by native Portland producer 5th Sequence.
This record is the follow up to their EP “Equilibrium” which was released earlier in 2011. Equilibrium did well with its release by getting fans around the world familiar with L PRO and 5th Sequence.
Both L PRO and 5th Sequence were said to bring back the template of historic veterans, Pete Rock and CL Smooth; and 5th Sequence and L PRO with their release of Equilibrium truly brought back the flavor of the golden age of hip hop.
L PRO and 5th Sequence present Vertigo as a complete piece of work that consists of true lyrical skill and raw beats produced by 5th Sequence and others such as Arkitek and DVS from L PRO’s previous group Grassrootz.
The opening intro to Vertigo brings clever scratches, banging drums and a nice salutation, “Welcome to Vertigo!” Scratches of Pro’s voice saying, “now you know my name” ring so true after hearing this joint. With guest appearances by Asa, Angel, Tokyo Nelson, Mic Crenshaw, Destro Destructo and Pricetag; this record is full of good music.
