You are wildin
This is getting very much into the details but just because I know some people enjoy the trivia...there was actually one more.
LB recorded a joint called Star for 9th Wonder's Dream Merchant 2 compilation album that for whatever reason was removed and replaced with No Time to Chill, which was also recorded around the same time. But anyways, LB included Star as a bonus track on Leftback and 9th threatened to sue if they didn't remove the song, so they did and Phonte went on a little Vimeo rant that has since been removed.
I'm mostly just telling this story so I can post Star, because it's in my list of top 5 most underrated LB joints. But yeah, Star, the joint with Wayne, and No Time to Chill are pretty much the last 3 joints that they did over 9th beats. And on No Time to Chill Pooh even says "Khrysis on the boards" but he means Khrysis is recording/engineering the song. That line has incorrectly led some people to think Khrysis ghost-produced the joint, which is not true. 9th did the beat. I also like Phonte's ode to Quiet Storm on the hook.
Finally, the joint with Wayne is one of the only 9th beats I know of with claps instead of snares. Final piece of trivia. They didn't really seek out Wayne. They ran into him a radio station and he said he was a big fan, which surprised them, and it ended up being a fairly organic collaboration. I remember it surprised a lot of people considering how big Wayne was at the time.
Yep i remember the whole drama over Star....9th was being petty. That should of told everyone that 9th is kind of a diva. He thought he was bigger than the group. 9th just likes to wear alot of hats and Phonte and Pooh aint got time for that ish.
In all Star is top 10 fav LB track
This and Bandana album of the year for me.
Little Brother, imo, is the most underrated group of all time.
Man I love Star...and hate no time to chill.
Always loved the Wayne collab as well. Would be dope if they got a J.Cole feature in this era.
Fam, Phonte came off like the big brother I always wanted. I agree on so much shyt.
Great interview. Pooh is kinda quite because they going deep into comedy and sports is more his thing.
Surprised they never worked with Cole. I could’ve imagined hem being featured on ROTD
Your content is always phenomenal...uhrm...pause
Funny thing is Khrysis used to work a lot with this dude Nervous Reck who I believe was either J. Cole's manager and OG producer, or maybe J. Cole was his manager. Regardless, they ran in the same crew, and maybe Cole even did do a couple joints with some Justus League cats. I'm thinking either Away Team or Joe Scudda. I don't think Cole and LB ever did anything though but I could be wrong. If they did I never heard it.
EDIT: Yep. Away Team and Cole's producer Reck did an entire album. There was a dope joint with Sean Price but I can't find it.
Yep i remember the Star drama VIVIDLY because Phonte was mad as fukk about 9th telling them to take the song off.
funny thing is I never really liked Star. I thought it was sort of weak for it to be the final Little Brother song that 9th produced.
@TheDarceKnight has either Phonte or Pooh done a joint with Oddisee? They kind of blew up at the same time period with similar sound/subject matter
A few actually. Kenn Starr also has some dope joints produced by Khrysis, and Justus League member Median was signed to Low Budget for a little while.
Little Brother (prod. Oddisee) shortly after The Listening dropped
Phonte, Oddisee, Kenn Starr, and Sean Boog on the hook (prod. Nicolay) also shortly after The Listening dropped

@Ziggiy I added 2 joints after you dapped
@Ziggiy I edited and added 2 joints after you dapped my post
I stumbled across THe minstrel show in 2005 at a px in Baghdad( yeah in the middle of a combat zone)
I used to buy cds every month, there was no way to know what dropped and when, so I would just try shyt. For whatever reason I had just finished watching bamboozled and saw this album called the minstrel show. I bought it and I’ve been a little brother fan since.
