Phonte – No News Is Good News
The Foreign Exchange frontman and former Little Brother member, Phonte, charmed fans last week with the release of his second solo studio album, No News Is Good News. Released on March 6, under the rappers conjoint record label Foreign Exchange Records, it comes highly anticipated as the North Carolina rapper has been keeping fans on their toes regarding a release date. This is the first piece of solo work we’ve seen from Phonte following his album Charity Starts At Home released in September 2011.
No News Is Good News is equipped with ten full-length tracks and only a limited amount of features from Indiana sensation Freddie Gibbs and R&B singer Eric Robertson. Meanwhile, on the production side of things, Marco Polo, Nottz and Tall Black Guy among others bless the project with their trademark sound. While set for an original release back in September 2016, Phonte held the album back due to the intense schedule surrounding his group The Foreign Exchange, and other endeavors. Some may argue the album however was worth the wait, firing on all cylinders and certainly showing us the Phonte of Little Brother.
Phonte first took to the stage alongside the legendary 9th Wonder and Rapper Big Pooh forming the trio Little Brother in the early 2000’s. After whipping up four critically acclaimed albums, the group parted ways back in 2010. Phonte has gone on to continue working alongside Dutch producer Nicolay with The Foreign Exchange.
Phonte , חבר בהרכב היפ הופ האהוב עליי Little Brother וחלק מהצמד של The Forgien Exchange מוציא אלבום חדש ומארח בתוכו אמנים כמו אריק רוברטסון , פרדי גיבס .
אלבום העצמו הופק ע”י מפיקים כמו Marco Polo , Nottz וגם 9th Wonder .
7 שנים כעברו מאז אלבום הבכורה שלו והשנה הוא חוזר באלבום שהוא בוגר יותר . שונה מהתקופה שבה היה בLittle Brother ומעבר לשיתוף הפעולה שלו עם המפיק הדני ניקולאי כThe Forgien Exchange .
