Buckshot & 9th Wonder Release Highly-Anticipated Collaborative LP, Chemistry, on
Bucktown, USA--- The story behind Buckshot and 9th Wonders collaborative union lends credence to the title they selected to matter-of-factly summarize the merging of their vast talents; simply put, it was Chemistry. What was supposed to be a short visit for Buckshot to 9th Wonders secretive recording enclave in North Carolina, ended up resulting in one of the most highly-anticipated Hiphop LPs of 2005, as Buckshot laments We actually came down to work with 9th on Sean Price and Smif N Wessons LPs; we realized they needed some dope tracks and I felt like 9th Wonder was the man to go to. The sessions were going so well with Sean and Smif N Wesson that I was blessed to get on a track as well. The vibe was so good that the next day we did another joint and then another and then another. Our chemistry was so good, that it just became Chemistry.

If your familiar with Hiphop you know the name Buckshot; the frontman for the Boot Camp Click, the entrepreneur behind the branding of Duck Down Records name on the Hiphop populous and of course for being the lead emcee from Black Moon; who can forget the classics from 1993 Enta Da Stage (How Many Mcs.., Who Got The Props and Buck Em Down), or 2003 Total Eclipse (Stay Real, Rush and How We Do It) which ushered in a new era for Black Moon as it found the entire outfit reunited. Buckshots personal growth (which included working with and being a part of 2Pacs One Nation Project) and unrelenting lyrical skills have paved the way for a career that now spans over a decade; which begins anew with Chemistry.

After exploding onto the Hiphop scene with there critically acclaimed 2003 debut, The Listening, Little Brother has quickly become a fan favorite and recently inked a major label deal with Atlantic Records. The man behind their ascent, 9th Wonder, has also seen his star rise, as over the course of two-years, he has become one of the most sought after producers in the Urban music landscape; including his remixes of Nas Gods Sun (which he appropriately re-dubbed Gods Stepson) and Jay-Zs The Black Album (re-titled Black Is Back), both of which attained cult-status with fans and ushered in a new trend of remixing that would see countless producers follow in his wake. In addition, 9th Wonder has lent production too Jay-Zs The Black Album, De La Souls The Grind Date, Destiny Childs Destiny Fullfilled, Memphis Bleeks 534, Masta Aces A Long Hot Summer, Murs 3:16 The 9th Edition, Jean Graes This Week, Big Poohs Sleepers and worked with artists like Kanye West, Pete Rock and of course his Justus League cohorts.

If you yearn for the days when Hiphop reflected true musicality and lyrical integrity look no further then Buckshot and 9th Wonders Chemistry.
