Little Brother Embarks On First National Tour

The North Carolina

trio of Phonte, Big Pooh, and producer 9th Wonder, collectively known as Little

Brother, began their first national tour Tuesday (Sept. 23) in Solana Beach,

California as a part of the Hieroglyphics Full Circle Tour.

The first performance

of the 40 plus-city tour was at the Belly Up Tavern, where Little Brother, whose

namesake is derived as an ode to the group viewing themselves as the younger

siblings of A Tribe Called Quest and the likes, offered selections from their

critically acclaimed debut album, The Listening.

Although the group

has done promo shows before, this is the fist time they will tour extensively,

a fact not lost upon Big Pooh.

"This is our

first tour so of course there is a little bit of anxiety that goes along with

preparing to go out,” the rapper said in a statement. “But I know

we are ready.”

While the group

has not disclosed any information regarding the follow up to their debut, 9th

Wonder has kept occupied by putting out a remix album of God’s Son

by Nas, and the producer is rumored to be laying a track for Jay-Z on his final

solo project, The Black Album.
