9th Wonder Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Little Brother "Sincerely Yours" (2005)

9th Wonder: "The creative control of the album was more so determined by Phonte. Not so much Big Pooh. "I mean Phonte had the concept of the album, but at the same time I came up with some individual song concepts, like for Pooh's 'Sincerely Yours.' Phonte was always good at sequencing records. So tying the album together was kind of Phonte's master line.

"Cats used to talk about Pooh on the Internet, so I said, 'Pooh, I got this beat. You need to do a song addressing that issue, man. For real.' And that's where that record came from."
