This past weekend, I met my grandma, Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit’s family (my dad’s mother) for the first time. My grandma passed in 1965, so I’ve had no connection to her at all. I listened to the elders talk about her all day. One elder in particular, her oldest niece, who’s 78-years-old, told me that her nickname was ‘Bladey Mae’, because of the blades she carried around in the purse and pockets, to protect her children from a segregated South, one of them being my dad. I was looking for a name for a new beat tape, and that one just came out of nowhere.

  • Im sorry but this cat fell off! Listen to his beat tapes from 03-05 and then come back to this & you tell me lol.

  • @Barrols

    What the hell are you talking about? Lol you obviously don’t know 9th Wonder and all those beats he’s been making and releasing with tons of artists. You don’t know hip hop for saying he fell off. Peace

      Nah he did tho..not as good

  • A-a-a-alchemist

    It sounds like 9th doesn’t even care what he samples anymore. He just drops the needle wherever and chops it up, calls it a beat. He fell off mad hard

  • whatthafack

    If it was Kanye yall would be sucking him off oh I forgot doesn’t even make his own beats anymore.

  • ap

    it’s really a shame this man never elevated his style or sound. still gotta respect him as a laptop legend tho.

  • Someone tell 9th wonder to STOP USING THE SAME GODDAMN DRUMS

  • SleepQuil

    As soon somebody tell SkateBoard P stop using the same 5 keys on his keyboard

  • Shaboy

    Haters! Probably hate on Kobe, LeBron, Adrian Peterson ext.
    9th Wonder is one of the greatest producer of our generation.
