Little Brother Have Released Their New Album. Listen Here (Audio)
UPDATE: Little Brother have released their latest album. Take a listen below.
Last September, the three founding members of Little Brother made an impromptu reunion on stage in Durham, North Carolina. Far beyond a photo opp, Phonte, Rapper Big Pooh, and 9th Wonder did an entire set at The Art Of Cool Fest. The moment took place in the same city that birthed one of the most beloved Hip-Hop groups of the 2000s.
In May of this year, it was revealed that the Little Brother discography would continue. As the group had been from the mid-2000s to 2010, Phonte and Pooh would maintain the legacy as a duo. 9th Wonder, who has produced solo material for ‘Te and Pooh in the last decade, has publicly offered his blessing for the group. All three men recently appeared in two documentary shorts. The first covered the making and impact of L.B.’s heralded debut, 2003’s The Listening. The second was on the 2018 reunion and its major significance.
Now, with less than a day of warning, Phonte reveals that Little Brother’s fifth studio album releases at midnight (August 20). It is titled May The Lord Watch. The album features a suited Phontigallo and Pooh on a couch. As Phonte looks deadpan into the camera, his partner-in-rhyme looks away.

Perhaps keeping the excitement brewing, no additional information has been given. Phonte has been using surprise tactics lately. In 2018, he provided little warning before releasing No News Is Good News. That album was eventually named one of Ambrosia For Heads‘ best of the year. Earlier this calendar, ‘Te achieved another quick-strike campaign with a singing EP, Pacific Time.
Little Brother’s last album was 2010’s The LeftBack. The Soul Council’s Khrysis predominantly produced, with guest appearances by Bilal and Torae, as well as a North Carolina MC who was in a pre-Listening configuration of the group, Median.
