Today in Hip Hop History: October 23, 2007
Hip hop trio Little Brother released their third studio album, Getback, through ABB Records in 2007. Little Brother is a North Carolina based hip hop group consisting of Phonte, Big Pooh and 9th Wonder. Getback featured in house production from 9th Wonder and outside help from Hi-Tek, Nottz, Khrysis, Illmind and others. The album contains outside vocals from Lil Wayne, Dion, Jozeemo, Tone Trezure and several more.
The album surprisingly did not include many 9th Wonder instrumentals, which elicited questions from fans about the future of the group. It was later configured that 9th Wonder and the group was parting ways due to creative differences and no ill will.
Getback peaked at #89 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and moved almost 10,000 copies in its first week. After its release, Big Pooh and Phonte toured with Evidence of Dilated Peoples to further promote its release. Following its release, the trio pursued solo projects. Their next album, Leftback, was released three years later.
