Background:
The legendary Curtis Mayfield once said, “Our purpose is to educate, as well as entertain.” Grammy Award-winning hip-hop producer 9th Wonder has taken those words to heart—generating hit songs while paying tribute to the history of hip-hop culture. After topping the indie charts with acclaimed hip-hop crew Little Brother, North Carolina native 9th Wonder seized the opportunity to produce on Jay-Z’s The Black Album, then parlayed the experience into sessions with Mary J. Blige, Destiny’s Child, Talib Kweli and other top artists. Thanks to his creative, musical approach to beat-making, 9th Wonder has an enjoyed a meteoric rise to stardom—and also finds time to give back. He supports the community in Durham, North Carolina, through P’Tones Records (www.ptonesrecords.com), which gives students the opportunity to learn about the music industry and further their education by earning scholarships to NCCU.
