The Story Behind Little Brother’s Debut Album, “The Listening” (Documentary)

When you hear them together, it sounds right…

This is how dope documentaries get done! Okay, so at 11 minutes it’s more like a mini-doc… but just right. Frame the story as a ‘making of’ but drop all kinds of gems and jewels of history (group and Hip-Hop) along the way.

Started in a college dorm room by a group of North Carolina Central students in 2001, the Justus League collective and offshoot trio Little Brother defined the sound of Durham Hip-Hop for years to come, constructing a style altogether distinct from everything to the north and south. This level of innovation turned heads with some of Hip-Hop’s biggest names, and the members of Little Brother (9th Wonder, Big Pooh and Phonte) have gone on to work with superstars like Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre and Questlove, who appears in the documentary.

Rapper Big Pooh x M-Dot – “The Beginning” (Prod. By Pause Beats)

For every great story, the starting point isn’t always the most optimistic. And when two respected, accomplished artists collaborate it doesn’t always mean there will be chemistry. Good news here, though… maaaad chemistry!!!

Boston’s M-Dot and Rapper Big Pooh (of Little Brother fame) drop their latest tune, “The Beginning,” over a soulful instrumental by Sweden’s Pause Beats. The track also features the sultry vocals of Sabina Ddumba on the chorus.

Rapper Big Pooh – “Seinfeld” (Go Up) feat. Phonte (Prod. By Swiff D)

BANGING!! While this is nowhere near a reformation of Little Brother, this previously unreleased “Seinfeld” (Go Up) track has the homies doing it like we remember in 2010 (because it is). Pooh and Tay doing the business. Where you at 9th Wonder?

Rapper Big Pooh – “The Recipe – Intro” (Prod. By Khrysis x Young RJ)

Suffice it to say, most music-making (esp. rap music) has a story behind it. But maaaan, this story takes a deep breath before & after to tell.

Back in 2008-2009 after the idea and talks of a Slum Village/Little Brother album faded amongst us…Young RJ and I started working on a project called The Recipe. While working on the project I became obsessed with finding the right joint to start the album off. Khrysis (he was engineering the recording for me in NC) plays this beat that I deemed, “the one.” Even though it wasn’t his production, I convinced Young RJ that this was what we needed to start our album off. He stripped the original version down and built it back up around the sample Khrysis used. I hit DJ Babu for the cuts and we were ready to rock. After The Recipe stalled while we were trying to get the business side straight, Slum Village started working on Villa Manifesto. I was asked about giving this track to Slum for their album but I refused, still planning on finishing and using it for The Recipe. Scrap Dirty made the OG call and gave it to Slum and it became Bare Witness, their intro track for Villa Manifesto. Here is my unmixed, unmastered, and unreleased version of The Recipe – Intro.
Rapper Big Pooh

This is pretty much as ‘raw uncut’ as raw uncut Hip-Hop can get. Enjoy and appreciate this finally-released gold nugget! Also, just think for a minute about the Slum Village/Little Brother album that might’ve been. WHEW!

Creestal – “Bars Of Death” feat. Ras Kass x Rapper Big Pooh x Skyzoo

BARS! Ear candy, but nothing sweet.

If you load a track with Ras Kass, Rapper Big Pooh, and Skyzoo, the lyrical content will likely hit hard enough, often enough, to kill… or at least be considered killer. Agreed? Well, whether you do or not, hit play and take these “Bars Of Death” upside the dome. Protect that neck. Lyrical lumps and bumps. Bumping beat by Creestal. A single off the “Differences” project.

Rapper Big Pooh x Nottz – “300Z” (Video)

If left on its own, the music in this beat could have been some smoothed out easy listening instrumental. Instead there is a nervous energy incorporated that lays out a track for Nottz to take us on a bumpy audio and visual ride; with an abrupt last stop. Rapper Big Pooh is the lyrical co-pilot (and “good” conscience, and “bad” conscience). Get this single “300Z” and more on Pooh and Nottz collabo LP “Home Sweet Home” (out now).

Rapper Big Pooh – “Stop” feat. Steve Roxx (Prod. By Apollo Brown)

MESSAGE! Video for a deep jawn off Pooh’s “Words Paint Pictures.” Okay, so in this video, Rapper Big Pooh and crew are riding, being followed by the police. Pooh gets pulled over, expecting the worst. Flashes of historic racial injustice obviously run through his head. Expecting to be treated differently because of the color of his skin, the video takes a twist.

What’s so eff’d up (and also a basis for relief): It’s a music video. You KNOW the brothers are gonna be alright. And yet, guaran-damn-teed you WILL get nervous, even worried, about their fate in this vid – getting stopped for driving while Black. Whew! Oh, you can pick up the album via the link below.

Rapper Big Pooh – “Augmentation” (Prod. By Apollo Brown) [Video]

Do you enjoy heavy bass lines, with a knocking beat, paired up with meaningful lyrics?  If that is the case pretty sure you will enjoy this new video for “Augmentation” for Rapper Big Pooh produced by Apollo Brown.  The track is off the upcoming album “Words Paint Pictures” that will be released from Mello Music Group. Here are some lyrics from Rapper Big Pooh that describe this track well …

Beat box, this is back to the block/ Before every rapper sold rocks/ Before everybody needed rocks in their watch/ Just watch, now it’s all about board rooms and stocks/ Words paint pictures, I’m an artist non-stop/ Raw beats, raps, this is called hip-hop…
