The Minstrel Show
Label: Atlantic Records
Adored for their classic beats and fluid lyricism, Little Brother (9th Wonder, Phonte, Big Pooh) impressed heads everywhere with their 2003 debut, The Listening. On their hotly anticipated first major label LP, the North Carolina trio does not disappoint as they drop dope head-nodders like "Slow It Down" and "Lovin' It." Exceptional hip-hop from a crew on the rise.
