Philly beatsmith Small Professor is back with his latest offering in the form of a beat tape appropriately titled 'Cool Story, Pro' which is available for digital download via Bandcamp for the bargain bin rate of $8.00. The project, which maintains Small Pro's soulful knock throughout, shifts moods around the halfway marker in a way explained best by the man himself:

"This is actually my second 'official' instrumental album, the first being 2008's 'Slowbus,' released on Seclusiasis. The album is (supposed to be) a story about a fictional relationship that starts off wonderfully and ends in sad, painful loss; at the time of its conception (early or mid 2010), I was coping with a recent breakup (and still dealing with issues from other past relationship failures), and constructing most of the second half of the album was my therapy. The first half - the lighthearted part - was mostly inspired by my current relationship. The original title was simply 'Jawn,' and was supposed to be released in fall 2011, but between the making of 'Gigantic, Vol. 1' and the other Jawn' albums/beat tapes, it was delayed until now. Stylistically, it was modeled after J Dilla's 'Donuts' and 14KT's 'Nowalataz' (2009), as well as being inspired by the "Chipmunk Soul" era of 2001-2003."
