9th Wonder Back At It

For the last ten years, 9th Wonder has been the Pete Rock of the new millennium. Not to mention, one of my early personal influences as a producer.

Shouts out to 2dopeboyz.com and NodFactor.com for keeping an eye out for the soul in the game…

9th Wonder and his Jamla imprint have released a new project called 9th’s Opus: It’s A Wonderful World. Shouts out to the NCCU fam including Rapsody, Big Remo and David Banner. I wonder if he makes an appearance on this one…

Available on iTunes now.

And I’ll blind you with the science that the others have yet to find”

Bonus Footage: I was trying to find a clip of what I thought was Jean Grae for like two years. I heard this girl rapping on interludes for 9th Wonder’s 2007 Dream Merchant II. The only female emcee associated with him, or so I thought at the time, was Jean Grae so I just assumed it was her. In the process of looking for this clip I learned that it was not Jean Grae. It was in fact a female emcee named Rapsody. You learn something new everyday. Please enjoy and pay thorough attention to the second clip…9th Wonder is a beast, but Rapsody’s voice just….well watch it.
