Little Brother Takes a “Curtain Call”

Posted in Audio, Downloads with tags , , , , , on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 by Tim Althaus

If every day could start out with a new Little Brother track, it would surely be a great day. “Curtain Call” is the first single off of LB’s new album Leftback which drops on April 20th, and it features Khrysis the Animal on the boards. This is definitely a real nice track, but it hurts me to think that this will be the last time we will hear a full length album from Phonte & Big Pooh. You will hear Phonte & Big Pooh spitting their usual dope verses, but at the end of the song Phonte shouts out some of the acts that he feels will be able to carry the torch; some of the names might surprise you.

Little Brother, Leftback (Artwork & Tracklisting)

Posted in Album Update, Music News with tags , , , on Thursday, February 18, 2010 by Tim Althaus

I know, I know, I’m a little bit late on this one, but you know what they say: “It’s better late than never”. I really hope most people are as excited as I am about this one. Phonte and Big Pooh will be dropping their fourth and final album Leftback on April 20th through Hall of Justus Records. I have to say, I’m sad to view the absence of 9th Wonder from the producer credits, but other than that, this album looks like it’s going be some quality material. I’m a huge Little Brother fan, so I can assure you that I will be picking up my copy on April 20th. Follow me after the jump for the tracklisting. Continue reading

Wild Style Wednesday Review: Little Brother, The Minstrel Show

Posted in Music Reviews, Wildstyle Wednesdays with tags , , , , , , , , , , on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 by Tim Althaus

minstrel1frLittle Brother is probably one of my favorite groups that I’ve ever heard. When 9th Wonder, Big Pooh & Phonte are all together in rare form on an album, they remind me of a force that nothing in this world could possibly stop. I personally am a big fan of The Listening & Getback, but I think these guys are in their top form on The Minstrel Show. Everything about this album is desirable, 9th Wonder’s beats on this album are more soulful than ever, and Te’s & Pooh’s rhymes are most definitely the most on point that they’ve ever been. Another thing that makes this album exceptional is that it’s a concept album that is done the right way. Albums like this make me think that if these guys would have stayed together they could have been one of the greatest trios in Hip-Hop history. Continue reading

Welcome To Wild Style Wednesdays at Mind Inversion

wildstyle

This is an idea that I have been thinking about for the last month or so. Wild Style  is a “throw back” if you will, and a classic that will never be forgotten in Hip-Hop. What I want to do every Wednesday here at Mind Inversion is review an album that in my opinion is a classic, or rather an album I will never forget. In another note all of the albums that I review are going to have been released before 2008. I hope you guys enjoy my weekly column, and if you have any comments please feel free to leave them.

Well here we are 20 days away from the LAyover EP, and EV and DJ Skee were gracious enough to drop this free mixtape on us. The Mixtape itself has 20 tracks on it and looks like a total banger, it has guest appearances from Phonte, Blu, Will.I.Am., Big Pooh, Aloe Blacc, Rakaa & others. Go grab this shit, it’s free and I garantee you are going to love it. After you listen to this you are going to fiend for the LAyover EP.

Little Brother: “Playin’ to Lose”

It just seems like there is more and more music coming out at the end of this year that I didn’t expect to hear. Little Brother will be re-releasing their 2006  mix tape Separate But Equal without DJ Drama in the background, and will also be adding to the mix three unreleased tracks. “Passion Flower” is one of them (which I had posted earlier), a track called “Deeper” is another and “Playin’ To Lose” make up the three unreleased tracks. I wasn’t a huge fan of Big Pooh and Phonte until I listened to the Minstrel Show, after I heard that I fell in love with Little Brother and I would say without hesitation that they are easily one of my favorite groups at this time.

Check out “Playin’ to Lose” and go out and cop Separate But Equal (Drama Free Edition) now.

Little Brother: Passion Flower

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , on Monday, October 13, 2008 by Tim Althaus

Well, it looks as if my boys from the Raleigh/Durham area are back at it again with another single (on a sidenote 9th produced the track, that’s why he’s in the picture). The new track is called “Passion Flower” and it is going to be off of their re-release and “drama” free mix tape Separate But Equal (the drama free part is that there will be no DJ on the mixtape, and the mix tape will also feature 3 previously unreleased tracks (It’s kind of similar of the re-release of the And Justus for All mixtape). Out of the three mixtapes (Chittlin Circuit 1.5, Seperate But Equal and And Justus For All) that LB has put out, Separate But Equal is my favorite, and I am going to be very interested to hear what they do with it. It’s great to hear Pooh and Phonte working with 9th Wonder again, they’ve done so many amazing things for Hip-Hop in the past and hopefully they can do the same in the future. With Pooh and Phonte being so busy, who knows if we will see another Little Brother album this year, my guess is going to be no (Phonte has the new Foreign Exchange, and Big Pooh has a new album he is working on right now). Please go and get Separate But Equal: Drama Free Edition on November 4th when it drops. In the mean time, sit back, relax and enjoy this beautiful Little Brother track as it hits your eardrums, because you know there is nothing like a 9th Wonder, Big Pooh and Phonte track: Dope beats, dope rhymes what more could ya’ll want?
