Buckshot, 9th Wonder Working On 'The Formula'

Boot Camp Clik

MC Buckshot and producer 9th Wonder are heading back into the studio to work

on a follow up to the duo’s album, Chemistry.

"Yeah, we

do have that album coming out," Buckshot told AllHipHop.com. "As a

matter of fact it's called The Formula. It's gonna be a good album, but

it ain't gonna be topics that will make a lot of people happy."

The release comes

on the heels of Chemistry, a 2005 9th Wonder-produced collaboration featuring

appearances from the Boot Camp Clik and the Justus League.

In addition to

being a member of the group Black Moon, Buckshot serves as co-head of Duck Down

Records as well as a key component of the Boot Camp Clik, a unit comprised of

Heltah Skeltah (Sean Price and Rock), O.G.C. (Originoo Gun Clappaz) (Starang

Wondah, Top Dog and Louisville Sluggah).

9th Wonder has

earned critical acclaim as one-third of the North Carolina-based group Little

Brother and a member of the Justus League, a collective featuring Little Brother

(Phonte Rapper Big Pooh and 9th Wonder), Big Dho, Cesar Comanche, the Away Team

(Sean Boog and Khrysis), Chaundon, DJ Flash, Edgar Allen Floe, Joe Scudda, L.E.G.A.C.Y.

Median and Nicolay.

The North Carolina

Central University graduate has produced songs for Jay-Z, Destiny’s Child

and Jean Grae, among others.

"The Formula

is the truth, and the truth hurts, but the truth will set you free," Buckshot

said of the pair’s sophomore effort. "But, if you're in bondage, anything

that sets you free will hurt at first. If you've got cuffs on and you're struggling

to get those cuffs off, first you've got to go through some pain before you

get those s**t's off."

While many artists

strive to concoct a masterpiece, Buckshot admits to comparing his forthcoming

opus to a more classic literary creation.

"I want to

be like Frankenstein creating a monster," said the rapper. "If you

know the true story of Frankenstein, he wasn't a monster. That's a real deep

analogy-people just didn't understand him. That's the reason why The Formula

is gonna be ill, it's gonna be based on the monster that people created."

The Formula

is scheduled to hit stores in the first quarter of 2007.
