SEAN HEALY PRESENTS
Two guys (Phonte and Big Pooh) from Durham, North Carolina who make hip hop.
Formed in 2001 in Durham, North Carolina, Little Brother first appeared on the hip-hop scene with their 2003 ABB Records release, THE LISTENING. The album immediately struck a chord with the rap community, garnering praise from the likes of Pete Rock and The Roots, as well as catching the ears of Jay-Z, who recruited producer 9th Wonder to craft tracks for him (‘Threat’) and Destiny’s Child (‘Girl’ and ‘Is She The Reason’). After swift sales and critical praise from virtually all of the mainstream media, the group inked a deal with Atlantic Records in 2004. Hallofjustus.com
