9th Wonder's Posse Cut With M1, Rapsody & more.....

9th Wonder says......
well.....actually 9 minute and 4 seconds.......

That's how long this posse cut is.....

For those who know, and prolly don't know....outside of me making beats and spinning records, I am full time visiting professor at North Carolina Central University, a historically black colllege in Durham, NC. I teach a class called Hip-Hop in Context 1973-1997, under a program called the Hip-Hop Initiative. The former Chancellor Ammons(now President Ammons of Florida A&M University) commissioned a full-fledged Pro-Tools studio ON campus, so that we could really get into the practice of making records. Out of that studio has been birthed M1-Platoon, a 5 man group of 19 year-olds from Washington D.C., who are all students there. Kooley-High, a group from North Carolina State University, Young Swift, a 17 year old spitfire from Durham, NC, who is actually in a pre-college program at NC Central, and countless other kids that come through just to learn the basics on how records are made, and just flat out to be around cats that have the same musical drive as themselves.

Basically, we are in there at most 4 days a week, or at least when I am in town. It has became a haven for kids who have a love for music, and to fellowship with ones who want a change in it....We call this place...DE STU

SO....

Last week I was playin' beats for M1 and Rapsody, who a lot of yall heard on the Dream Merchant 2 interludes.....

I ran across this one joint I made in ATL 3 weeks ago while I was down there doing a True School Party, and the TORNADO came through that jam.......I took M1 members Big Chopps and Arafat with me so they could get the TS experience....

DE STU was packed as usual...

Big Chopps and Arafat Yates(Get Tha Cakes), heard the beat and was like..."YEAAAH, I remember this jam....you made this one in the A, whassup with THAT jam?"

Now....its about 12 rappers in the studio by now, with friends and associates alike, HOWNGRY to rap....


I was like "ok...ima put 7 cats on this joint...everybody can try out.....but only 7 rappers can get on the jam....."

well....everybody scrambles for pen and paper......12 cats.......all writing at the same time......reciting there rhyme...practicin' the flows...all that...

So....in the control room it sat me, my assistant Alleis(Softserve) and Picasso(resident beatmaker extraordinaire....


One by one, each rapper entered the booth, and lefted the booth 2 flame in their wake.....it got MORE and MORE impossible for me to CUT somebody....and at the end...I DIDN'T.....

The crazy thing is...the age of these kids range from 17 to 22......with most of them being UNDER 20

so...I bring to yall B-BALL TRYOUTS......starring in order of appearance...
