Phonte

A widely respected, down-to-earth rapper and singer -- as well as a producer, arranger, and engineer -- Phonte (aka Percy Miracles, El Tigallo) was a member of Little Brother, a trio that formed during the late ‘90s at North Carolina Central University. Within years of formation, Little Brother became the leading alternative rap group of their time. While LB were still thriving, Phonte established the Foreign Exchange with Dutch producer Nicolay; that act debuted in 2004 with Connected, then made a marked shift toward moody, left-of-center R&B with the Grammy-nominated Leave It All Behind (2008) and Authenticity (2010). Little Brother disbanded in April 2010; within a year and a half, Phonte released his first solo rap album, Charity Starts at Home. Throughout his career, Phonte has been involved with numerous outside projects; he collaborated with DJ Mitsu, Murs, Darien Brockington, DJ Shadow, 4hero, and the Roots, among several others, and recorded a series of side-splitting (but affectionate) covers EPs with multi-instrumentalist Zo!, one of his Foreign Exchange associates. ~ Andy Kellman

Wrote an article on Little Brother when the Minstrel Show dropped. That album was so dope that it forced me to purchase the Listening and after that anything Phonte was featured on was a must have. He's the epitome of a dope emcee! Lyrical wizardry at it's finest, and he's down to earth like your play cuzin.

the Listening, foreign Exchange, Separate but equal mix tape. The Minstral Show and etc. Little Brother and that's including 9th wonder was dope, still dope, and always be dope. My fav hip hop duel. I no I no there where a bunch of groups. I mean Outkast is outkast, 8ball and MJG I mean they go on and on but......... . Little brother changed my perspective on hip hop music kinda like my homie LUPE.

People are just starting to find out about LB, I guess better late than never. As always, the world sleeps on real Emcees while the wack radio rappers are famous for some reason. Phonte is having a great career so far, had the pleasure to see The Foreign Exchange and he was great! Not only can he sing but he rips the mic as well.
