Little Brother Announces Fourth and Final Album
Almost a decade after forming in their home town of Durham, North Carolina, MCs Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh (collectively known as Little Brother) have announced that their upcoming fourth album, LeftBack, will also be their last record together. LeftBack was initially conceived as an EP, but has since been transformed into a full-length release. On the change, Phonte said, "I didn't want our last record to be a bunch of second-rate material. I wanted to walk away from Little Brother knowing that I gave our fans all that I had to give, and said everything I wanted to say. With LeftBack, I've done that." Contributions to the new release include production from Khrysis, Symbolyc One, and Zo!, as well as guest vocals from Chaundon, Yahzarah, Jozeemo, and more. LeftBack is out April 20 on Hall of Justus.
