RAPSODY FEAT. KENDRICK LAMAR & LANCE SKIIWALKER – POWER (PRODUCED BY 9TH WONDER)

To set the table for Laila’s Wisdom dropping, Rapsody drops an absolute banger off the album with “Power.” The Jamla emcee trades bars with Kendrick Lamar over a ridiculously savage beat from 9th Wonder. There are so many quotables that you’ll have a hard time picking one. Get Laila’s Wisdom, you won’t be disappointed.

9TH WONDER TALKS JAY-Z, KENDRICK LAMAR, THE HARVARD HIP HOP ARCHIVE & MORE ON PBS’ ‘THE OPEN MIND’

PBS’ “The Open Mind” has featured everyone from Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. to Aloe Black and Bernie Sanders. 9th Wonder shows up for the 30 minute conversation and discusses the Harvard Hip Hop Archive, what it is and the first four albums that are in the catalog that are deemed classics. He also discusses today’s emcee, Jay-Z and much, much more. It’s certainly worth your time.

9TH WONDER & MR. CHEEKS – THE LOST TAPES [ALBUM STREAM]

This is extremely random and completely out of nowhere. Back in 2010, 9th Wonder and the Lost Boyz lead emcee Mr. Cheeks joined forces for a project that never saw the light of day, until now. Before hitting play, let 9th Wonder explain where “The Lost Tapes” came from.

“I have a ton of music on my drive. Sitting. I hate sitting music.

“I first connected with Mr. Cheeks in 2008, who has always had a close relationship with North Carolina. After I opened BrightLady Studios in 2010, one of the first artists to bless the booth in Jamla’s new home was Mr. Cheeks. Seven years later, after speaking with Mr. Cheeks’ manager Janet Williams of The Matriarch Agency, who has always supported the Jamla family, we decided to let these fly.

“Arranged by AMP and 9th Wonder for The Illustrious Soul Council. Recorded in BrightLady Studios, Raleigh, NC. Shouts to NC, Southside Jamaica Queens, and beyond. Enjoy. As always……For The Culture.”
