Video: 9th Wonder Interview w/ Soulculture TV

… producer 9th Wonder on his trip to London in April 2009. He talks to SoulCulture.co.uk about the art of sampling, why producers that sample are misunderstood by older generations, current work with Wale and David Banner – and why putting his face out there is so important now in an age where, often, music is seen before it’s heard.

    Isn’t twitter about texting people you don’t know…

    Its basically Sending messages to celebrities who never respond to you and don’t even know you exist.

    People on twitter are happy to stalk (follow) people on it. Especially celebrities.

    Cany any niggas from VA vouch for the clipse?

    Like niggas from Maryland vouched for Hov.

    If these twins laid their murder game down and had the coke game on smash, they get respect and more power to them.

  54. icon (trillbert arenas) Says:

    Note to murderers: If you kill someone, do not write a song describing how you did it.

    A Georgia rapper was sentenced to 20 years in prison after killing a man and then writing a rap that detailed how he did it and calling the victim, Chad Blue, by name.

    “Chad Blue know how I shoot,” Rico Todriquez Wright rapped.

    And now, so does everyone else.

    After initial reports that LL Cool J’s clothing line was in danger [click to read], WooHa reports that Sears has opted to cease production of the Queens icon’s signature line, which was announced in July of 2008 [click to read].

    Sears purchasing sources told the industry insider publication that the cuts were a reaction to the recession, but also lack of interest in the marketplace. Cool J has spoken little of the line since his Exit 13 campaign.

    Consumers will be able to purchase LL’s apparel at 50-75% discount at retailers and through Sears online.

    What’s up with 9th? Does he feel like he’s not specail enough? I mean come on…Stop it! You should want people to maining kids to feel like they can be like you or better than you. The buck doesn’t stop with him bc he made it on a Jay-Z album or MJB album…Looks like the fame or haters have really got to him.

    He’s going to lose a fan by being so full of it. Be humble and give grace.
