Black Thought & 9th Wonder’s Collabo Album Arrives In Less Than 1 Week
Black Thought and 9th Wonder started the year off with a mammoth announcement. Both stated as much during a panel back in January. Today, it has been revealed that the first fruits of that project will harvest in less than one week. It seemed to be mounting anyway as The Roots MC and North Carolina-based producer had been working together at least since 2016 and heavily since 9th was co-producing, along with Salaam Remi, the Philly collective’s forthcoming End Game album.
Now, Hip-Hop Heads receive some concrete details about that Black Thought and 9th Wonder’s project collaboration, and apparently, it’s coming out very soon. On social media, each announced their forthcoming work will be called Streams Of Thought Vol. 1, and it’s slated to arrive on June 1. The text post also mentions that 9th’s Soul Council producer collective will be heavily featured on the effort and “Vol. 1” presumes that this is just the start of this amazing combo.
Back in 2016, Black Thought hopped on the Ambrosia For Heads-premiered cut “Making A Murder,” which featured Styles P and proved the combination of Thought and 9th was a deadly one. At the time, 9th Wonder told AFH, “We had been going back and forth for a while about it…..so we decided to just do music. No haggle, no hassle, just to do some music. Beats and rhymes…..that’s it. Doing what we love. I’m honored, for real.”
The Soul Council presently includes Khrysis (of The Away Team), Nottz, Eric G., Kash, E Jones, and Reflection Eternal’s Hi-Tek.
