9th Wonder Says He Was Unaware of Song on "LeftBack"

Exclusive: Before Saturday's Twitter episode, 9th told DX about a potential "Star" placement on LB's farewell album, LeftBack.

Before this weekend's Twitter feud between Phonte and 9th Wonder, HipHopDX spoke to 9th Wednesday of last week about his forthcoming Fornever album with Murs. During the interview, 9th was asked about a possible song of his being placed on Little Brother's farewell album, LeftBack.

When asked about a track being placed on LeftBack, 9th replied that he was unaware of a song being on the record.

"I don’t know. I have no idea. That’ll tell you. [Laughs] I don’t know. I don’t even know the record. What’s the name of the record?" he asked. "So, me and you are on the same boat. I have no idea, man."

9th went on to add that he has not submitted any beat to Phonte or Pooh since "Rear View Mirror" off Pooh's Delightful Bars.

"Nah, I haven’t submitted anything. The last beat I submitted to either Phonte or Pooh was for Pooh and it was for 'Rear View Mirror.' Everybody heard that."

The song in question, "Star ," was at the center of a Twitter dispute only a couple of days later. Over the weekend, 9th and Phonte rehashed the Little Brother break-up through a few comments on Twitter and later through a video blog from Phonte (shown below).

    I just can't understand why the greatest groups always curtain close their shows like this! It happened with tribe, it happened with wu, slum village and the list goes on! Even though ninth has been wrong about his approach! it really doesn't matter as we know albums like the listening or the minsteral show! will not be heard again until little brother do a renunion album in twenty years time appearing on the letterman show ,lol, great.! good history for my sons son; but come on peeps the unit will never be the same without voltron! im sick of hearing about little brother disputes if its not gonna better the music then what the fuck??! in reality there all bitches for even commenting on the issue , and i mean all! there my boys but tonight im gonna buy left back and hope they have progressed from getback! this one beat ninth track disputes has really started to piss me off! its bullshit! i respect the likes of other artists truly on this new lp,, but nagh son, it will never be the same , that feel as when i heard there first two joints. For example. when dilla left slum village,, trinity was a half decent album and detroit deli was even better! reason being the producers on deli had no other alternative but 2 go the dilla route (which they did) to salvage the real slum village feel! which was a clever move. That can only work so many times lol! as slum village the self titled album took a lil step back as you can never be dilla (r.i.p) and fantastic vol 2.. is the ultimate definition that defines slum village for ever. Little brother basically need to put this bullshit side and make classical music again, for they proved they can do this! or basically! end up like every other classical group that went down the same path! where in 8 years time when everythings resolved and you wanna get back to the real shit and by then its too late cus some new kids on the block are getting the job done. jason.

    thats real talk from phonte, and personally i agree with what he said, trust me peeps the devil is happy to see great groups break up, cos he knows the music they put out is just great music. its a real shame about little brother and 9th wonder. they should come together (face to face) and settle it. i love them both, little brother and 9th has really set a trend of hip hop. all this he said this and that is BS. lets squash it and move on. i am really happy what phonte did (coming out on a video footage) to express his views, i hope 9th wonder does something similar to that. phonte is a heavy mc and 9th wonder is heavy producer. the devil is working them up and it doesnt look good, both of them are better than that. God is watching all this and he will settle this. trust me. peace everyone.

    This is crazy LOL...I always wondered what was the cause of the "Little Brother" break-up. I think 9th's head got a lil big after workin with a few "high profile" acts...he prolly wanted his 'cut' increased...royalties is a ma'fukka!! But 9th, you need to stop the nonsense and holla atcha boys!! Yeah, "Ya Boys!" Little Brother fans waitin' for a "Minstrel Show II"...let's have it!!! Divine, PEACE!!

    9th is a bitch ass nigga. cant even face the niggas he came into the game with. watch your circle people. the same cat you grindin with might act like he dont know you if he gets on. phonte is talented, he doesnt need 9th, but little brother is gonna be what they remembered for and they cant get it together. phonte asking for a sitdown like a man and 9th dont even answer. cowardly nigga. fighting through the phone, and twitter for the public to see, like scorned lovers. pathetic situation. twitter fucks these niggas reps up.

    man i agree with phonte on this one 9th should man up and talk in person to phonte or pooh. i know there are both sides but to be honest my cousin use to try and record with 9th and he told me that he is shady as hell. he will say one thing and then change his mind in an instant so go figure. i met 9th and phonte believe it or not at the state fair back in 06 and they were cool as hell, i couldnt believe it was them really. everything was cool then but you know when you start getting big so does your ego and i guess that is what split them up. i think 9th could've let them have this track if they recorded for the dream merchant free of charge. we wanna here good hip hop which is an endangered species right now. north carolina please quit this new york bickerin shit and unite and help put our state's talent on the map. we have not made it yet on the hip hop map so i was really looking forward to little brother boosting our hip hop rep but with all this kindergarten shit i dont know... its really sad. it looks like it might be j. cole next up to bat!
