Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Rhythm Roulette fans. While most of y’all don’t deserve shit the way you’ve been wilding in the comments sections this past year, we decided to let it slide and gift you with a new episode featuring the North Carolina legend 9th Wonder.
After linking up at The Record Krate in Raleigh, we joined 9th back at his studio to watch the master at work. With Charly McClain, Jermaine Jackson, and The Temprees at his disposal, the GRAMMY award-winning producer warmed up with a few quick flips before ultimately chopping up Lovemen. The final result was so crazy, Rapsody immediately hopped in the booth to bless it with a proper verse.
Anderson .Paak has swiftly gained momentum as one of the top artists to keep an eye on after his work with DJ Premier and Dr. Dre on the Compton album. Dr. Dre took to his Pharmacy show to premiere the 9th Wonder and Callum Connar produced “The Season/Carry On” and it’s well worth the listen.
Stream the highly anticipated collaborative project between Talib Kweli and 9th Wonder that also features Pharoahe Monch, Slug (of Atmostphere), Brother Ali, Rapsody and more.

9th Wonder hits The Combat Jack Show and gives us one hell of an interview.
Live from Atlanta, at the tenth anniversary of the #A3c Music Festival, we finally caught up with producer and Harvard scholar 9th Wonder where he share his incredible story about leading a scene in North Carolina with the incredible Little Brother crew to not giving JAY Z a track he had for his own group. The breakup with Phonte and Big Pooh, making hits for Destiny’s Child and why he’s going so hard for his Jamla Records premier artist Rapsody, why he really wants to collaborate with Rich Homie Quan and of course, his journey in becoming a professor at Harvard University. This was truly an honor building with 9th and I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
