9th Wonder takes on A&R Position

NC Legend 9th Wonder continues to add to his extensive resume'. The latest entry? A&R for 101 Distribution:
Today it was revealed to HipHopDX that 9th has accepted a Urban A&R position through Arizona-based 101 Distribution. “I just thought it was a good opportunity to get my fans to go to one place,” the North Carolinian producer explains. “CD sales in stores are really going down, labels get in the way and I just thought of a way to put out the album for everybody to go buy it. It’s a supply and demand type thing. I don’t believe in a big, big roll out and all this whatever. I tell my fans to go get it, they get it and I’m straight. And I think 101D is the best place for it.” The union started when the distribution company worked with 9th on distributing his and Wale's Back To The Future mixtape.

Big L Documentary

It's so good to see joints like this right here. I've watched the joint for 'Pac I don't know HOW many times, and "Notorious" was ok (could've been better imo). But this one looks to be promising -- more authentic. Peep the trailer.


Young Chris, Freeway & Beanie Sigel x 9th Wonder

I like this joint right here. 2 of my favorite rappers (Free & Beans) + the God, 9th? It has to be a good look.

My b, I been away for a few. We're working on getting this album ready for January 1 release date. But I'm back on the blog tip...let's get it!
