✨✧ Little BrotherMinstrel Show ... CD
Atlantic/ABB, 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Little Brother transitions to the majors with their soulful underground sound intact – and deliver an effort that in the best moments improve upon the already classic Listening LP! It looks like this just isn't going to go over with the TRL crowd, despite the Atlantic logo. The soul sample vibe in general has seeped back onto the pop charts thanks to Kanye, but the prolific 9th Wonder's brand is of a much grittier stock, providing a rock solid, emotional soul foil for the rhymes of Phonte and Big Pooh. Honestly, as ubiquitous as 9th's production presence continues to be, there's still really no one else out there like Little Brother – which is another reason to celebrate. Like the golden era work by the prime movers of the Native Tongues, the Wu, and Organized Noize collectives, LB's sound is an instantly identifiable, singular signature that you just can't bite. Don't expect to hear a better full length hip hop album on a major label in '05. Tracks include an intro & outro feat Yahzarah, "Beautiful Morning", "The Becoming", "Not Enough", "Slow It Down" and "All For You" feat Darien Brockington, "Cheatin'", "Lovin It" feat Joe Scudda, "Watch Me", "Sincerely Yours", "Still Lives Through", "We Got Now" feat Chaundon and more!

✨✧ Little BrotherChittlin Circuit 1.5 – Unreleased Tracks, B-Sides & Remixes ... CD
Fastlife, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tasty helping of material from Justus League flagship Little Brother – who lit the underground ablaze a couple years ago with their debut on ABB – and hope to do the same in '05 when the Minstrel Show drops on Atlantic! Chitlin Circuit features unreleased tracks, remixes and b-sides – largely produced by 9th Wonder (natch) and Khrysis, with some guest turns by Nicolay and Young Guru. There's some damn strong s**t here – featuring the crew's signature soulful and string-laden funk production – with the tougher wordplay they've been rockin' in the couple of years since The Listening! 18 tracks in all: "War", "Third Party" feat Joe Scudda, "Honorable" feat Chaundon, "Yo-Yo (rmx)", "Nighttime Maneuvers" (rmx), "Altitudes", "Welcome To Durham" featuring Big Daddy Kane, "Flash And Flare" feat LEGACY, "Take It There", "The Beginning" feat Yahzarah and more!

✨✧ BeansTomorrow Right Now ... CD
Warp, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beans hits the dirt first – here's the first post Antipop solo project. Like that crew's later work it's a lot better than us sample-loving hip hop purists want to admit – pretty much a continuation of Ahrythmia without the rest of the group. When Beans is rhyming – and for most of this LP he's right there – everything's on point. His flow is fast, smart, and crystal clear, and he has a playful way in which his delivery surrounds the beats. At his best he reminds us of recent Del. When he's sitting out on tracks, you're subjected to blips, bloops, and computer babble that's better left to the other artists on Warp. Tracks include "Roar", Phreek the Beat", "Mearle", "Raping Silence", "Toast", "Hot Venom", "Mutescreamer", Booga Sugar", "Slow Broken", and more. 14 tracks on one shiny disc. CD
