Little Brother - We Got Now. More songs by Little Brother. In that respect, the hype around them is reminiscent of what first greeted Slum Village in the late '90s though they've been more consistent than their Detroit colleagues.
Few groups earn a major-label contract based on their producer's merits, but when Little Brother jumped to Atlantic for their second full album, The Minstrel Show, any cynic looking for a good reason would point to the increased profile of trackmaster 9th Wonder Gee Baby - Various - Ace Story Vol.

I know most places list this as "Gold vinyl", but the colour is more of a translucent orange really. About time this got a reissue! Such a classic album. Vinyl repress now up for pre order online. Don't sleep. Official gold colored vinyl repress up for pre order now.
Cop it. Fantastic album. An absolute classic, and a record every true hip hop fan should own. Easily the best LB album. It works so well. It's the sound of a team on top of their game and working together to make a first class product.
Shame they could never better it. Too bad 9th Wonder couldn't get along with Pooh and Phonte in the end because we should have been blessed with efforts like this one for years. Bangers Watch Me - Little Brother - The Minstrel Show (Instrumental Album) "Lovin' it," "Beautiful Morning" and "Watch me" make you wonder why this group was never a household name, even by many of those that should know who they were, collectively.
Phonte is one of the illest lyricist in rap music but Thematically speaking, this album is unlike anything I have ever heard. From start to finish, Little Brother and their production crew Night Bird - The Kaplan Brothers - Nightbird flawlessly execute their Minstrel Show satire.
The "Fifth and Fashion" skit is in my personal skit hall of fame. If you are a young, halfway educated black person in 'merica--like myself--this skit especially will make you smile.
