From his humble beginnings making dorm-room beats on Fruity Loops, North Carolina's 9th Wonder has had a wild ride en route to rap stardom. His group Little Brother were one of the first to really blow up online, using message boards and blogs to propel themselves into a record deal; that led to several excellent LB albums, production deals with Jay-Z and Destiny's Child, and eventually a GRAMMY® Award for his work with Mary J. Blige. Always down to discover and mentor new artists, he introduces his latest protégés on 9th's Opus, showcasing young blood he's signed to his new label It's A Wonderful World Music Group. As such, most of the featured voices here (with the exception of Skyzoo and the Away Team) are complete unknowns, plucked from obscurity and set loose over 9th's trademark beats loaded with lush samples, mid-tempo BPMs, and simple drums. Thee Tom Hardy shines on the relentlessly positive "Grinnin'," Big Remo does his thing on the chop-heavy "It's Real," R&B singer Heather Victoria impresses on the Bob James-sampling "I Will Always Be Down," and 9th himself takes to the mic on "1000ft."
Classic hip hop. New artist. Black Jedi with E.Jones aka 2010 Duke hair care products man of the year. Gotta be a contender for compilation of the year.
Ear food for the hip hop heads!
Eclectic mix of rhymes with new twists on old styles that we've always loved. Cop the whole album and run it again and again. You will not be disappointed! Nice to hear The Away Team is making more releases! And Act Proof is definitely on the come up!
9th stay on that real sh$&t!!!!
Incredible,after all these years of other producers venturing out trying new sounds to show there so called creative sides and not being able to come bak to what made them. 9th wonder is able to be creative and stay in his box...a tru masta at his craft of keeping it hip hop.
