Download: L Pro - "Equilibrium"

The EP:

"Equilibrium, the new EP from Portland emcee LeMont Boyd (AKA L Pro) and native producer 5th Sequence, is a tasty sample of what to expect from their upcoming full-length Vertigo.

Older heads may remember L Pro as L Profound, his teenage pseudonym as a member of the duo Grassrootz, along with beatmaker D-Wyze. Their 1998 debut, Uncharted Regions, garnered positive national attention, yet they soon disbanded due to D-Wyze relocating to California. Meanwhile Boyd's subsequent setbacks—including a divorce and being stabbed in the face—kept him away from music for some time.

His collaboration with Soul Plasma on 2003's Simply Soul marked a determined return to form that has continued ever since. If Equilibrium is any indication, L Pro and 5th Sequence are primed to resurrect the template of Pete Rock and CL Smooth, combining thought-provoking lyrics over jazzy samples and raw head-nod beats." - Portland Mercury Press
