Phonte of Little Brother is finally going to drop his solo debut.
In an interview with theurbandaily.com, the emcee revealed that the album will drop on September 13 – the six-year anniversary of Little Brother’s The Minstrel Show.
“I’ma pretty much sit down now and hash it out…If my record is like Amplified, just as an example, [9th Wonder] would be my J. Dilla,” explain Phonte.
“I told him that I want him to set it off, and then any other producers we run with, they have to fit within that framework,” said Phonte of his conversations with 9th, with whom he recently reconciled.
As for the date, Tigallo insists that it was pure coincidence. “Once I found out that’s what it was…I can’t push it back now.”
UPDATE: Phonte has revealed that his debut solo album, Charity Starts at Home, will be released on September 27th. The LP will drop on the same day as 9th Wonder’s The Wonder Years, announced earlier today.
And finally, on 9/27, both me and @9thWonderMusic will drop our solo albums “Charity Starts at Home” and “The Wonder Years.”
I sincerely thank all of you for the love and support over the years. Thank you for listening.
UPDATE: The cover art and tracklist have been revealed, thanks to Foreign Exchange Music.
