Album Review

It should be an easy story to tell: vaunted rap group loses the producer who made them a quality act, then slowly sinks back into the underground, never to be heard from again. From Get Back, it's clear that Little Brother didn't mind the loss of 9th Wonder and decided to rewrite the script. Not only do Phonte and Pooh sound like nothing has changed, in point of fact they sound more energized and engaged than ever before. They've got more to say and more intriguing ways to say it, including touches like fronting a flashy production worthy of Bad Boy for the anti-materialist "Good Clothes," inviting Lil Wayne for "Breakin My Heart" (where he reliably blows your mind with line after line, like "I don't want a broken heart because I lose the pieces"), and floating an utterly hilarious exposé of late-night hook-ups ("After the Party"). Instead of the usual rap record circa 2007, where dozens of lines go by with no reason to pay particular attention besides technical ability, it's difficult not to hang on every line here from Phonte and Pooh. And for those worried about the production quality with 9th Wonder's departure, it may have actually improved with the work of Illmind and Khrysis, among others (9th Wonder appears once, on the Lil Wayne feature). It's one of the most refreshing hip-hop records of 2007, one where you can rely on rappers to talk intelligently and rap fluidly about important subjects, know what to treat seriously and what to treat humorously, put up great productions, and really care about what they're saying.

Artistic Differences

I get it okay. You guys are good and don't get the main stream respect you deserve. But like you say people "spend their lifetime trying to headline, but its so much better being your opening act." When I first heard this on the Justus For All.. mixtape this past year, my fears that LB had succumbed to the damaging effects of the digital age were left at bay. The Listening for me is the greatest rap album ever produced. I realize this is a bold statement, however I feel as though there had never been such a unique chemistry between two rappers and a producer, comming together had a crucial moment in their careers. Since then, it seems as though everything has simply remained in the shadow of that success. Sure some great beats and rhymes have been generated, but the passion and reflection on NC life has been lost - and rather than money and success negatively affecting your music - its the exact opposite. Whining about why you're not played on syndication outside of Durham makes you sound like losers, and I had so much respect and admiration for you guys that this hurts me on a huge level. Whether it was Phonte or 9th Wonders' ego that got in the way of making GetBack what it promised to be is extraneous to the fact that this album is a cop out. Good Clothes is bangin, Can't Win for Losing could have been good but the drums are all off, Dreams has a clean sound to it as well, but the fluidity within the album, the story, the passion is non-existent. Don't bother releasing an album with 12 songs on it after releasing 18 or more on the previous ones, that in itself is evidence of your struggle to get this album out. My advice, GetBack to your roots, spend some time on the corner, and reevaluate why you started rapping in the first place. And cheer up Phonte, your wit is lost in your cynicism. peace

It's Hot

Little brother song Good clothes is a sick and hot song it's my fav it song i listen to it everyday like 20 times.

Extremely Unrefined (Compared to Other Albums)

Because Little Brother is wayyy above the average MainStream rapper I have to say I'm kind of dissapointed in this album. Yea it's good but it just doesnt seem to have that feel where I want to listen to it more then once. But the 2008 ...And Justus For All had really refined this sound. This album is nothing compared to ...And Justus For All where every song is a single. Either way GetBack was not an LB fav.

Biography

Formed: 2001 in Durham, NC

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Part of the new millennium resurgence of alternative rap, Little Brother drew from atypical inspirations for Southern hip-hop: classic Native Tongues outfits like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, as well as more recent torch-bearers like the Roots and Black Star. MCs Phonte (born Phonte Coleman) and Big Pooh (born Thomas Jones) swapped rhymes with an easy chemistry, but the group's real focal point was DJ/producer 9th Wonder (born Pat Douthit), an old-school sampling technician who quickly established...
