Phonte of Little Brother & The Foreign Exchange fame has a new collabo with The Beast & Nnenna Phrelon's new project "Freedom Suite". Hosted by 9th Wonder, its a lil jazz/hip-hop infusion that showcases the versatility of hip-hop. Give it a listen, you just might like it.

The Wifey Problem

Lmao...I was over on XXLmag.com checkin out some new music and everything, right? So, then I come up on this little editorial called "The Wifey Problem". lmao...word son??

Check out an excerpt:

So, one can only imagine the level of schmag-level trim that comes a rapper’s way if they’re successful (or at the very least have their names out there like they are). At the same time, that would make actually settling down with one special person that much more difficult since we, being the step-above-primitive beasts that we are, are going to want to smash every little thing in every little city we could get our hands on; not exactly a quality potential female suitors look for in us. And when the slores of the world seemingly pass it off to us as if we were Adrian Peterson… well… Maury Povich has made a living doing shows that spotlight the consequential results of those decisions.

In case you forgot...I'm a grown man...

I still got the 22 instrumentals for the free download!!!

Here's the brief history:

As I was cleaning up my harddrive and reorganizing my files, I came across a folder titled "website stuff." After opening multiple random pictures, word documents and other stuff, I opened a folder that contained beats I made, but hadn't heard in YEARS. It kind of blew my mind because I thought they were lost forever!

Don't get me wrong, it's not like I can do anything with them because the original files are long gone. All I have left is the raw mp3 mixes -- some formatted for songs, others formatted for freestyling and others just 1:00 snippets. Therefore, I am releasing them to the public for FREE DOWNLOAD!! Feel free to do whatever you want to do with them! This is just a gift from me to the world showcasing my abilities, as well as me doing a small part in contributing to this great NC movement currently underway.
