The debut from North Carolina organic hip hop crew Little Brother – an unexpectly strong and soulful effort in the vein of the Roots, mid-career Tribe Called Quest, and early Slum Village! The trio of Phonte, Pooh, and 9th Wonder have been kicking around Durham, NC and the southern hip hop scene for a while – representing the Justus League collective and other groups – but they have a stronger foundation with Little Brother that should make them known the world over if there's any true justice out there! Fans of the Okayplayers and the above mentioned artists will find much to love here – laid back, southern-drenched soulful hip hop (as opposed to hip hop soul) – and let's all thank ABB
for thinking beyond the Bay, nurturing some truly worthy status quo defying artists, and giving the south some left coast indie support!!! Tracks include "Morning", "Whatever You Say", "Make Me Hot", "Shorty On The Lookout", "The Way you Do It", "Speed" and more.
(Includes a bonus 7 inch with the tracks "Mr Dream Merchant" and "Atari 2600"!)
