ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You have now entered the ParanormL's PortaL
It's 1992 in South Los Angeles, a transformation is about to take place that will undoubtedly be recognized as a pivotal point in the history of music. Immersed in hip hop and seeking new avenues of expression, a 15 year old breaker/grafiti artist picks up a steno pad and a ball point and scribes the first of many rhymes that subsist deep within his soul.

From that point on, The ParanormL knew he had found his true calling. Deeply inspired by innovators like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief and Freestyle Fellowship, he started the group S.H.P. (Seventh Heaven Planets) and began rockin' shows. The ParanormL produced, recorded, mastered, and performed on all of S.H.P.'s material, including the group's two albums ("Re-Evalution" & "Chemistry"). This experience served him well as he has matured and naturally progressed into one of Undergorund's most respected solo acts. On his first solo release, "Refrain from the Mundane", The ParanormL recorded 21 classic Hip Hop tracks and performed with undergorund greats, Vex DaVortex, Crag Malkovich, Red Cloud, No Name aka The Funeral Director of The UndaTakerz w/Kool Keith, and Johnny Five of Superdouble.

The future is now, and while hip-hop is clouded by wack beats laced with simplistic fairytales and blatant fiction, The ParanormL drops his 2nd solo album "The PortaL" with stark contrast. 13 revolutionary tracks of banging beats, intertwined with mesmeric melodies, and conceptual lyrics delivered with unadulterated veracity. "The PortaL" takes you on a multi-dimensional journey back to hip-hop's roots and through it's rewritten future. Phoenix Orion of Alien Nation, Neila from La2theBay, and Gentle Jones, three of the underground's most brilliant emcees, join The ParanormL on his quest to revolutionize Hip Hop and bring out of it's current state of disarray.

The ParanormL has performed with acts like - Phoenix Orion, Abstract Rude, Canibus, 2Mex, Radioinactive, Pigeon John, Neila, HipHopKlan, Xololan Xinxo, Konfident, Jizzm High Definition, Avatar, Halifax Allstars, Redcloud & more.
