Back again with another installment of the Behind The Beat series which showcases original samples used in Hip Hop. This time around I decided to focus on the brilliant ear of 9th Wonder. 9th has been one of my favorites pretty much since Little Brother's The Listening dropped almost 10 years ago. Since then he's went on to producer for everybody from Jay-Z, Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Ludacris, and the list goes on and on. So here's a selection of some of my favorite tracks produced by 9th Wonder paired up with the original sample. And as always please give my podcast 5 stars on iTunes. Thank you.
