Best known for his breakout work with the North Carolina group Little Brother, 9th Wonder has successfully transitioned from underground favorite to mainstream beatmaker to the stars (Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, etc.), and he continues to churn out some of the game’s most soulful hip-hop productions. After two quality compilation-style albums (The Dream Merchant Vols. 1 & 2), 9th returns with the heavily anticipated third round.
