Ever imagine what it would be like to be nationally recognized yet still locally respected producer 9th Wonder? Now is your shot thanks to a documentary called The Wonder Year that chronicles the Little Brother founder’s work teaching at Duke University, producing tracks and offering insight into all that went into becoming the renowned artist that he is.
You can cop the entire Kenneth Price directed documentary for $20 if you donate, via Kickstarter, to 9th’s next film, The Harvard Fellow, which will follow him putting in work at Harvard University. Watch the college professor, beat junkie and Zulu Nation member explain how he flips samples at Duke University, the origin of his name, his Winston-Salem, NC home and more in the first eight minutes of The Wonder Year below.
