Little Brother Vocalist Shares How He Did and Does More than Just Rhyme
|By Amir Said (Sa’id)|
In group settings, the musical process is always “collective” and organic. So I’m not surprised that Phonte played a role in the end production of Little Brother’s songs. However, due to Phonte’s previous background with making beats, perhaps it would appear that he had a much bigger role than one would expect. In this video, Phonte clears up his “I’m like a Quincy Jones producer; 9th is a beatmaker” statement. Even after watching this video, I’m still not quite sure why Phonte draws the comparison between himself and Quincy Jones, but I’m glad that he makes it clear that his comments weren’t a slight to 9th Wonder. Phonte also briefly touches on his process with beatmaker Nicolay.
