9th Wonder has created a bunch of incredible beats over the past 12 years. Let's look at 10 essential cuts.
North Carolina's Patrick Douthit isn't like most hip-hop stars. He's uninterested with chains, fame, cars, clothes and objectifying women. He's concerned with honoring classic soul music through his sample-based hip-hop beats. That has been enough to catch the attention of Jay Z, Beyonce, De La Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Erykah Badu and many more.
But not all music can be for everyone, and 9th Wonder isn't going to compromise his integrity to go with the flow of mainstream rap music. Instead he speaks his mind, peacefully and truthfully, while making a crazy amount of music. We're thankful for dudes like Patrick Douthit, because without him, who knows if hot, new hip-hop music would even exist?
