Back in September of last year, the hip hop world rejoiced as Little Brother–the trio of Phonte, Rapper Big Pooh and 9th Wonder–reunited on stage at the Art of Cool Festival in Durham, NC. But ever since then, there’s been little to no talk about a formal reunion in the studio.
Chopping it up with DJ Booth, Phonte made it official: Little Brother is back online!
“I’m excited to announce that my brother Big Pooh and I are back at work. New Little Brother music and a tour are coming soon,” Phonte says, before revealing 9th would, unfortunately, not be tagging along. “After conversations with 9th Wonder following our Art of Cool reunion show in Durham last year, the three of us mutually agreed it was best for LB to continue as a duo, as Pooh and I have officially been Little Brother since 2007.”
When the new music will be released remains to be known, but looking forward, Phonte and Pooh will be performing at the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, NC on September 5-7.
Now, who else is HYPE AS HELL for a new LB album?
